But those who deal truthfully are His delight.

May 30

Today marks five long years since my aunt died unexpectedly. I actually thought my cousin was calling about my Grandma since we all expected my grandma, at age 96, to die first.

My cousin called me at 6 am and I was just shocked by what she told me. Then I had to call my mom and tell her. That was very difficult. It was horrible.

I still miss my dear aunt. I miss sharing a whole lot of stuff with her. I just miss talking to her too. We were always very close.

As the years go by, I have less and less bad days, but I still ocassionally have those bad days.

Oddly, one year ago my dog died on this day too. I posted about Otis here. He's the one right in front. I still miss him a lot too. He was my special dog. He loved my aunt too. I brought Otis out on a plane to visit my aunt and her dogs.
I know I will never have another Otis in my life, he was that special.....

Thankful Thursday

Today Lynn has chosen The voice of God and Obedience for our topic.

Often times, I think that being able to be obedient is tied in with listening to God. Though I know in my life I often don't take the time to actually listen for Gods voice.

I try to be obedient to His voice when I do hear it.

I have audibly heard God speak to me and each time I was obedient to His call. I had to be, I had no choice. When God tells you to do something, you must obey.

Jesus heard the Voice of God and was obedient!!

Today I am thankful for:
*beautiful spring days
*the smell of flowers and blooming trees in the yard
*the beautiful spring colors
*my family

Psalm 100:4
Enter into His gates with thanksgiving,And into His courts with praise. Be thankful to Him, and bless His name.

Romans 5:19
For as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so also by one Man’s obedience many will be made righteous.

Starting from the top blue blanket, here are the sizes:

Thankful Thursday--Friday edition

Yesterday's topic was nature and I posted how just by looking outside that you could see Gods handiwork.

I realized today that not only can you see the beautiful things in nature, but you can also smell them!!!

I am reminded every day I walk out my door in the spring, summer and fall. Even the winter has it's own smells.

There are lilacs in my yard, and honeysuckle, salvia, trumpet vines, tulips, day lilies
pine trees, maple trees, and many many more flowers and bushes and trees.

Imagine not only creating beautiful things to see, but also the beautiful fragrance of these beautiful plants!!!

I am in awe....

Thursday, May 21, 2009

Thankful Thursday

Today's theme is Nature!

All you have to do is walk out your door and see the beauty of Gods handiwork.

I see it in the trees in the yard, the Lilacs, all the plants that have been planted and the flowers. You can look up into the sky and see the beautiful clouds too.

The birds at the feeder, the beautiful green grass and the wild animals.

I made a post a few days ago about my veggie garden. It's just small plants and seeds planted right now but in a week or so we should start seeing something from the seeds!! Imagine planting a tiny see and getting a carrot! Or tomato, or cucumber!

Today I am thankful for:

*my garden
*my yard
*the birds that sing
*my son
*my daughter
*my sweet husband
*warm sunshine days!

Genesis 1:29-31
29 And God said, “See, I have given you every herb that yields seed which is on the face of all the earth, and every tree whose fruit yields seed; to you it shall be for food.
30 Also, to every beast of the earth, to every bird of the air, and to everything that creeps on the earth, in which there is life, I have given every green herb for food”; and it was so.
31 Then God saw everything that He had made, and indeed it was very good. So the evening and the morning were the sixth day.

Fifteen years ago

On this day fifteen years ago, my husband proposed to me!!

It was a huge surprise to me, apparently everyone but me knew about it!! He even asked my mom and dad if he could marry me and for their blessings. I had no idea at all. He chose the ring and everything!

And he did get down on one knee to propose. Of course I said yes, and then cried and cried!! He tells me he was nervous though.

This is also the day he graduated and was commissioned at the Naval Academy!! He tells me he proposed on this day so he could remember it!!

Anyway, it's been fifteen wonderful years and I couldn't ask for a better husband and daddy!!!

May blanket

This blanket is made with Caron's Pound of love baby yarn, It's that baby green with a strand of white mixed in with it.

It has a white portion on the top because I miscalculated how much yarn I had left and I ran out of yarn and didn't have another color to match!!

This blanket is 27x32.

I originally made it for a friend of my daughters. They didn't find out the gender of the baby til birth so I thought I would make a green blanket.

Well, I didn't really like how it turned out so I waited til they had the baby and gave them a PINK blanket. They had a baby girl and I was the first person to give them a pink item!!!

Thankful Thursday

Today's theme is Wisdom. Thank you Lynn for hosting and Happy Birthday!!

I often lack wisdom and I pray for wisdom.

I think as we grow in our faith we grow in wisdom.

Today I am thankful for:

* my husbands job!
* that my husband and I are of one mind
* for my little guy--he brings me great joy
* for my big girl--she too brings me great joy!
* beautiful spring weather
* Trader Joe's

Psalm 111:10
The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom;A good understanding have all those who do His commandments.His praise endures forever.

Proverbs 2
The Value of Wisdom
1 My son, if you receive my words,
And treasure my commands within you,
2 So that you incline your ear to wisdom,
And apply your heart to understanding;
3 Yes, if you cry out for discernment,
And lift up your voice for understanding,
4 If you seek her as silver,
And search for her as for hidden treasures;
5 Then you will understand the fear of the LORD,
And find the knowledge of God.
6 For the LORD gives wisdom;
From His mouth come knowledge and understanding;
7 He stores up sound wisdom for the upright;
He is a shield to those who walk uprightly;
8 He guards the paths of justice,
And preserves the way of His saints.
9 Then you will understand righteousness and justice,
Equity and every good path.
10 When wisdom enters your heart,
And knowledge is pleasant to your soul,
11 Discretion will preserve you;
Understanding will keep you,
12 To deliver you from the way of evil,
From the man who speaks perverse things,
13 From those who leave the paths of uprightness
To walk in the ways of darkness;
14 Who rejoice in doing evil,
And delight in the perversity of the wicked;
15 Whose ways are crooked,
And who are devious in their paths;
16 To deliver you from the immoral woman,
From the seductress who flatters with her words,
17 Who forsakes the companion of her youth,
And forgets the covenant of her God.
18 For her house leads down to death,
And her paths to the dead;
19 None who go to her return,
Nor do they regain the paths of life—
20 So you may walk in the way of goodness,
And keep to the paths of righteousness.
21 For the upright will dwell in the land,
And the blameless will remain in it;
22 But the wicked will be cut off from the earth,
And the unfaithful will be uprooted from it.

I wondered out loud about this the other day with my husband. It answered my question!!

I think it's wonderful that the women are allowed to do this!

You can also donate yarn to the prison. I wonder if any of the womens prisons in my area have a similar program?? I will have to check it out.

Female prisoners crochet for change

By Tricia Pursell
The Daily Item

SELINSGROVE -- Inmates at Snyder County Prison are proving -- one blanket at a time -- that incarceration doesn't have to end in disappointment and failure.

Determined to make a difference, and to make good use of their time, several of the approximately 18 women at the county lockup spend hours each day crocheting beautifully colored and designed blankets to donate to various charities.

They have already donated 18 of them to Penn Lutheran Village in Selinsgrove, and have 15 more ready to send to the neo-natal units at Evangelical Community Hospital in Lewisburg.

"It's a great program, and a benefit not only to the prisoners, but a great benefit to us here at Penn Village," said Brian Black, activities director. He said the residents always complain about being cold, so the blankets are a welcome sight.

"I always liked helping other people," said Tracy Webb, an inmate who on Wednesday was busily working on a pastel-colored baby blanket to donate to the hospital. "I'm thankful to the warden for letting us do this, for helping me to give back to the community."

The activity is also helping Webb to grow as a person, and gain a more positive attitude about her situation. "I was reading all the time, staying to myself in my bunk," she said. "But now, I'm around other people."

Webb, who never knew how to crochet before, is looking forward to making blankets for her two grandchildren when she gets out.

"We need to realize these people are going to get out of prison one day, and we need to do the best we can to help rehabilitate them," said Snyder County Commissioner Joe Kantz. "If we are going to demand respect from them while they are incarcerated, we had better be willing to show them nothing less than what we expect."

After a recent trip to Pike County Prison, which has found much success in implementing a number of rehabilitation programs within its walls, Snyder County commissioners were stirred to see similar success and growth among its inmates, and continued to work with the warden to come up with some ideas.

"We have been talking about these types of programs for our prison over the last year, but we wanted to learn more from a prison that has been successful in implementing such programs," said Commissioner Malcolm Derk.

When approached with the idea of crocheting blankets for good causes, the inmates were immediately on board.

They even had a teacher on hand. A former inmate had learned how to crochet in state prison, and put her skills to use by teaching the others how to do it, Warden Ruth Rush said.

The skills they are learning go far beyond just making blankets, Rush explained.

"It shows them there are good things that can be done for other people that doesn't take a whole lot of time or money," she said. "They are learning to cooperate, take directions and learn responsibility."

Inmate Kathleen Day said she and the others think often about the families they will be touching through the blankets they make.

"We sit and pray over them," she said.

The positive change in the atmosphere of the women's wing is being noted.

"You can even see a difference in the amount of trouble they're getting into," said Kantz.

Day agrees. "It's relaxing. It relieved a lot of stress in the wing."

The women can now be seen helping each other. "That's really nice to see," said Day. "We're thankful for the opportunity."

Right now, the county is supplying yarn for the program, but the prison is hoping to receive donations from local businesses, organizations and individuals.

"Every time they bring a bag of yarn in, it's like Christmas," Day said with a smile, adding that a nice blanket can be made out of about six skeins of yarn.

Memory Verse Week 19

Proverbs 11:30

The seeds of good deeds become a tree of life;
And he who wins souls is wise.

Mothers Day

Happy Mothers Day to all of you.

I am glad I still have my mom here to wish her a Happy Mothers day.

I also remember my Grandma on this day. And three of my Aunts. One I was especially close to.

This is a day to recognize all the moms in our lives. It doesn't even have to be your own mom!!

I sent my aunt and Grandma a card each year because they were special to me.

Old and New

These are two blankets I have made.

The top one I made about 20 yrs ago. The bottom one I just finished.

They are both the same size--about 18 x 18 inches. They have the same stitch.

I can't believe the top one is still together since the ends are frayed, but not coming apart!! It's been washed hundreds of times too.

Steaming compost, part ll

Eleven days ago I posted this.

Today my pile of enriched compost is STEAMING!!! I can hardly believe it but it is.

My husband told me today that he thought it felt warm and I went out there to check it out and sure enough it's warm and steaming and composting well!! I am so excited!

He is also going next week to get another truck load of compost/manure for the garden extension.

I have already purchased some seeds to start for the new part of the garden.

I am doing carrots again, and two different types of lettuce. I also got cucumbers and about three or four herbs.

There are already just four tomato plants in there now that hubby put in the other day. We are waiting to do more til we are sure it won't get so cold at night.

Mmmmm, the thought of fresh, warm, just picked, homegrown tomatoes is just mouth watering to me!!!

Thankful Thursday

Lynn is our host for the month of May.

Today we our thankful to Mothers.

I am thankful that I still have my mom with me. That wasn't always the case. I was one of those rebellious teens and I can only imagine the anguish I cost my parents.
Being a mom myself I can understand some of that anguish now.

It took a while before our relationship was as good as it is now. There were times I shared more with my Aunt or Grandma than I shared with my mom.

I was talking with my daughter yesterday. She told me I wasn't her hero but I am a good role model. I can live with that. I don't need to be her hero, but I am glad she thinks of me as a role model. I know that hasn't always been the case.

Mothers can be someone other than our Mothers. A mother can be a close friend, an aunt, a grandma. These are special people in our lives too.

I know Mothers day can be hard for some women. Women that have lost children, or are infertile, or have had miscarriages. This day can be painful as well as joyful.

I hope you have a wonderful Mothers day!

I rejoice that I have my two healthy children.

Proverbs 23:25 (New King James Version)

25 Let your father and your mother be glad,
And let her who bore you rejoice.

Today I went to the dentist. It was a good appointment but I will need a new crown on a crown I have had since I was 13. It's OLD and needs to be replaced. And the hygienist was a little vigorous with the cleaning. My teeth hurt.

My hubby got the stuff for the garden expansion yesterday and will be working on that tomorrow. I am excited to plant a bigger variety of veggies this year!!

This afternoon we had the little guy's kindergarten interview. It's a private Christian school associated with our church. I can hardly believe he will be starting kindergarten. He is excited. Me, not so much. But it will all be good!!

Today was my dog Otis birthday. He would have been seven today. I still miss him.

Hubby also got a new bird bath. We have three of them in the yard and the biggest, main one had a huge crack in it. He got a smaller one but I think I might like it better than the old huge one.

I am so happy it is spring. I like the sunshine a lot and the smell of the freshly cut grass. Even the smell of spring rain is refreshing after the winter!!

May 1 , 2009

Today is May day. The first of May. I seem to have a faint memory of making Mayday baskets on this day when I was in elementary school.

Anyway, just a tiny bit of info about may day:

Roots of May Day celebration in America:
The Puritans frowned on May Day, so the day has never been celebrated with as much enthusiasm in the United States as in Great Britain. But the tradition of celebrating May Day by dancing and singing around a maypole, tied with colorful streamers or ribbons, survived as a part of the English tradition. The kids celebrating the day by moving back and forth around the pole with the the streamers, choosing of May queen, and hanging of May baskets on the doorknobs of folks -- are all the leftovers of the old European traditions.

The weather here is improving though it is cool and rainy sometimes. We need the rain though.

We will wait til the end of the month to put in our garden. Tomatoes for sure, some peppers, hot peppers and I want to try some carrots and herbs again.
I really want an additional garden but it would have to be so far away from the other one, which would make it hard to water etc. I want lettuce but maybe I will do that in containers. My brother is doing it in pails and it's always good!

The end of school is coming up this month. I have the boy signed up for T ball and swimming and I am sure we will find other things to do throughout the summer.

It's that time of year to make dental appointments for me and the little guy. It's something I dread and I find myself putting it off unfortunately.

We found a new church home. But it's not exactly new. We have been going on and off for about twelve years and decided to make it our church home.
This church has a ton to offer for everyone of every age. We are currently taking a gifts class, only two weeks left for that. I believe I will be taking the summer off from any class or small group but will start again in the fall. The church offers a Beta class that I am interested in.

Daughter recently moved into a new place. I hope she likes it. No roommate this time. It's still close to her work. She has been coming over each Thursday while the husband and I take our class. Little guy enjoys when big sister comes over!!

I am currently crocheting some tiny preemie blankets for charity, along with regular sized baby blankets and the prayer shawls. With a few baby hats thrown in along the way. I find that I like making baby hats more than the bigger hats. Little guy put in his order for a new winter hat already!!!
I'd really like to have a go at crocheting socks!!

The dogs are both doing well after their bump removal and gum surgery. Off all antibiotics and pain pills now--thankfully. They won't have to go back to the vet til next spring!

My mom is still doing well thankfully. She will be 81 in July. I am glad she is in good health.

I was at the store today behind someone asking about cigarettes. I am so glad I quit when I did. One pack of cigarettes is seven dollars!!!!! I couldn't believe it. But the government is taxing them heavily.

I think that's all I have for this post!

Have a great day!
