So I spent the day with my BFF`s Mom, as Teresa and her `Brand New`husband, Mark, were away on their very first Marriage Retreat.
Regina, Teresa`s Mom, `Puppy sat`their Dog Rocky, at their home...
So her and I hung out and what started out to be a "lesson in Crocheting" ended up to be something totally different...
Regina, who i`ve known for most of my life, was ever so kind to knit me this BEAUTIFUL scarf, that I absolutely am in love with! Can you tell ?!?!
I will treasure it always....not because it`s so beautiful to me or not because it will keep me nice and warm, but... because it was... a labor of love.......
Thank you Regina for my beautiful scarf and for teaching me a thing or two!

The Path Of Perseverance by Amy Carmichael

Long is the way, and very steep the slope,
Strengthen me once again, O God of Hope.

Far, very far. the summit doth appear,
But Thou art near my God, but Thou art near.

And Thou wilt give me with my daily food,
Powers of endurance, courage, fortitude.

Thy way is perfect, only let that way
Be clear before my feet from day to day.

Thou art my Portion, saith my soul to Thee
O what a Portion is my God to me.

I need endurance, courage and fortitude, right now in my life...
It seems like work get`s harder and harder these day`s.
I quess it`s because the world is getting darker.
I am called to be a light and I will continue to trust in HIM who has called me to be a light...

Matthew 5:15-17 says this -
No one lights a lamp and then puts it under a basket.
Instead, a lamp is placed on a stand, where it gives light to everyone in the house.
In the same way, let your good deeds shine out for all to see,
so that everyone will praise your heavenly Father. Amen!

Philippians 2:1-3 (NIV)

Imitating Christ's Humility ......
If you have any encouragement from being united with Christ, if any comfort from his love, if any fellowship with the Spirit, if any tenderness and compassion, then make my joy complete by being like-minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and purpose. Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves.

Father I long to be like you...
may my joy be complete in you and you alone, having the mind of Christ,
having the same love, doing nothing out of selfish ambition but in humility,
may I consider others better than myself....

Praise be to God that He, in the midst of our depravity, drew us to Him with the sweet chords of His melodious grace. We were wretched and iniquitous, yet He chose to love us freely.

Hallelujah! Praise the Lord, provider of our salvation and promise of hope!

In The Garden
I come to the garden alone
While the dew is still on the roses
And the voice I hear falling on my ear
The Son of God discloses.
And He walks with me, and He talks with me.
And He tells me I am His own,
And the Joy we share as we tarry there,
None other has ever known.
He speaks, and the sound of His voice,
Is so sweet the birds hush their singing
And the melody that He gave to me
Within my heart is ringing.
