Blessed Are the Merciful

I gathered these pretties yesterday.

from my morning Bible reading:

Mercy – compassion or forgiveness shown toward someone
whom it is within one’s power to punish or harm.

Luke 6:36
Be ye therefore merciful,
as your Father also is merciful.

A merciful or compassionate man easily forgets injuries;
pardons them without being solicited;
and does not permit repeated returns of ingratitude
to deter him from doing good,
even to the unthankful and the unholy.
Clarke’s Commentary

Matthew 5:7
Blessed are the merciful:
for they shall obtain mercy.

“The quality of mercy is not strained;
It droppeth as the gentle rain from heaven
Upon the place beneath. It is twice blessed;
It blesseth him who gives, and him who takes::
Portia in William Shakespeare’s
The Merchant of Venice

Luke 6:36 Amplified Bible
So be merciful
(sympathetic, tender,
responsive and compassionate)
even as your Father is [all these.]

Today . . . Help me exercise Mercy, Lord.

Makers’ Monday – Moods

Jeannie Gray said
” It’s Makers’ Monday.  Tell me all about what you’re making.”


The mess of Moods of Change I found in ‘Crochet time out’.

I don’t know when I started it.
I don’t know what size needle I used.
I think I know where I left off . . .
but I ripped it out anyway and started over on February 6.

By this afternoon, February 12,
I had finished row 32 with 364 single crochets.
Some people stop at this point
making a mini Moods of Change.
I have many more skeins of yarn
so I’ll keep going around and around
depending on my ‘mood’.

Pictures show red as rosy but it is more country brick.
