September 27, Today’s thought – Mourning?

may13 005Take things one step at a time. . . Today

Good Morning

Psalm 42:3-5
My tears have been my meat day and night, while they continually say unto me, Where is thy God? When I remember these things, I pour out my soul in me: for I had gone with the multitude, I went with them to the house of God, with the voice of joy and praise, with a multitude that kept holyday. Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou disquieted in me? hope thou in God: for I shall yet praise him for the help of his countenance.
Psalm 42:8
Yet the LORD will command his lovingkindness in the daytime, and in the night his song shall be with me, and my prayer unto the God of my life.
Psalm 42:11
Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou disquieted within me? hope thou in God: for I shall yet praise him, who is the health of my countenance, and my God.

Canst thou answer this, believer?
Canst thou find any reason why thou art so often mourning instead of rejoicing?
Why yield to gloomy anticipations?
Who told thee the night would never end in day?
Who told thee that the winter of thy discontent would proceed from frost to frost, from snow and ice, and hail, to deeper snow , and yet more heavy tempest of despair?
Knowest thou not that day follows night, that flood comes after ebb, that spring and summer succeed winter?
Hope thou then!
Hope thou ever! for God fails thee not.
~~~~Charles Spurgeon

Hopeful . . . Today
With my prayers, desiring yours, Leslie

Yarn Along – Grandmother’s Favorite

yarnalong_gsheller_gray

On Wednesday’s knitters go to Ginny’s to share all the wonderful projects being worked on, finished, frogged, cried over, and learned from. They also tell what they are reading and a little of the storyline or provoking thoughts. I think it is great. So many books, knitting ideas and hints on how to make knitting more enjoyable.

I don’t have much exciting knitting this week,
but I wanted to link up with Ginny and her friends.

I have a large lace shawl and 2 afghans on the needles,
but I seem to need to see something done.
So I have been knitting Grandmother’s Favorite dishcloths.

These are this Grannie’s favorite, too.
I knit with a size 4.
I love using the signature points to make
that K2tog with the unyielding cotton.
Thanks to the Farmer’s gift a few Christmases ago.

The white one has a swan knitted in, for my Mom,
she and dad used to have swans living on their section of Nelder Heights creek

I saw this yarn in Joann’s and knew it had to me another blanket
for a friend due late fall.
