Yarn Along — I Like Yarn

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.

October 23 – Today’s thought – Faith

P1020642Peggy’s Cove, Nova Scotia, October 23, 2009

Good Morning

Holding the mystery of faith . . .1 Timothy 3:9

Faith is the eye by which we look to Jesus A dim-sighted eye is still an eye, a weeping eye is still an eye.

Faith is the hand with which we lay hold on Jesus. A trembling hand is still a hand. And he is a believer whose heart within him trembles when he touches the hem of the Savior’s garment, that he may be healed.

Faith is the tongue by which we taste how good the Lord is. A feverish tongue is nevertheless a tongue. And even then we may believe when we are without the smallest portion of comfort; for our faith is founded not upon feelings but on the promises of God.

Faith is the foot by which we go to Jesus. A lame foot is still a foot. He who comes slowly nevertheless still comes.
~~~George Mueller

Verse 1
You ask me why I believe like I do
Why I’m so convinced that the Bible is true
I’m here to tell you, it’s only because
I’ve come through enough to see what faith does
Faith sees the invisible, believes the impossible
Receives the incredible, no matter what was
Faith moves the unmovable, proves the unprovable
For anyone willing to trust
Believe and you’ll see what faith does
Verse 2
If there’s a mountain that stands in your way
From all you can see, it will be there to stay
God said with the faith of a small mustard seed
That mountain will move, believe and you’ll see
Believe and you’ll see what faith does
You’ll see what faith does
You’ll see what faith does

Ten on Tuesday – Food?


On Tuesday’s Carole hosts ‘Ten on Tuesdays’.
She chooses a topic – we list ten items.

10 Foods You Eat Regularly Now That Were Exotic (or unheard of) When You Were a Kid.

The only think I can think of is: I eat out more.
Eating out was almost unheard of when I was young.
So eating out was such a treat, even if just hamburgers.
I’ve used a lot of my mom’s recipes and menus.
I can’t improve goodness.

And I’m not an adventuresome eater.

visit with Carole here.
