Verse of the day...

Have mercy on me, O God, because of your unfailing love. Because of your great compassion, blot out the stain of my sins. Wash me clean from my guilt. Purify me from my sin. (Psalms 51:1-2)

.:: This week started out for me feeling stunned and saddened.... Marinke, known to many as Wink, of ~A Creative Being~... has succumbed to the depths of depression and taken her own life.
I didn't know her in person.... but though the worlds wide web...and as a fellow crocheter... we become connected. Its amazing the tight 'knot' that holds crocheters and knitters together. As such... another crocheter has started ‪#‎MandalasForMarinke‬ . There was no doubt in my mind that I wanted to be a part of this ... so here is my Mandala for Wink.
Dear Lord God.... have mercy on her soul. Hold her family a little tighter through this trial. Comfort them and help them find peace. Thank you Lord for blessing our lives with such a sweet lady like Wink. I will miss her!
In Jesus Name........ Amen!

We said good-bye to this beautiful girl one year ago as she ventured off to the United States Naval Academy to fulfill her dreams. Patrick stayed here to fulfill his dreams in the Computer Science field. Patrick and K have become stronger individually and as a couple! I'm so proud of these two!!!
One year down.... three to go!!! 

Love you K.
