Verse of the day...

3 I thank my God every time I remember you. 4 In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy 5 because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now, 6 being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus. (Philippians 1:3-6)

Back to work...................

**The Lord is my light and my salvation—so why should I be afraid? The Lord is my fortress, protecting me from danger, so why should I tremble? ~Psalm 27:1**

These are the words of a man who has learned how to be sustained in the most difficult, trying times of life. He learned in the midst of troubles that he did not need to live in fear, because God was his defense.

Amazing ................. just amazing! The words of our Father ... right there... just when we need to read or hear them!!! I'm dealing with some trying times right now... and I'm so blessed to have God right there with me... guiding me... holding me up... protecting me. WOW!
And through all that... He shows me how to bless others. I continue to do charity work and it feels GREAT! I have seriously been praying about the charity work I have done. I want to do more. I love giving to others! I love spreading Gods love through a simple skein of yarn and a crochet hook or set of knitting needles. Thank you Lord for all you do through me!
As for this scarf............. this is Scarf #3 for the Orphans of America.

Scarf #4 for Orphans of America. I had intended on making 5... but only got 4 scarves out of the 2 skeins of yarn I bought for this project. So we'll see. I may or may not get a chance to get more yarn and make one more. If not......... I am pleased I was able to get these 4 done and will be quite happy to contribute them to the cause.
Shhhhhhhhhhhhh..... this is one of the scarves I'm making for my Swap partner. Love the pattern and hope she does too. I cant wait to get her package put all together and mailed off. I love swapping ... its so much fun... like mini little birthdays or Christmas's
Now this.... this is another tested Square for Donna (aka: SmoothFox) from C'ville! I Love her patterns!!! This new take on the heart in the middle is rather neat! This solid heart and her 'granny' style heart are just enough different to be able to use them for just the right project.
Thank you Donna for letting me test this for you............. this one is going into a comfortghan... so it will get plenty of love!

Isnt this just the neatest darn thing? What is it you ask? Its a towel ring/holder! A lovely lady on C'ville (aka: Cocoa Cream) designed this! All I need is a button and its ready to be a gift for some special person! You can find the pattern here...... Towel Ring
Well.. off to get more work done............ have SEVERAL projects going and need to keep moving on them!
I'm sorry for not being around lately... for not sharing ... my work and thoughts. But my wonderful husband took me and our 3 young boys off for a mini vacations this last weekend. We had tried to do this for our Anniversary.. but that didn't all work out as we had hoped... but we got to do it this weekend. We spent time swimming... eating lovely meals... walking the trails... hayride to a campfire with story time and smores... apple picking... and just all around fun. No worries... no responsibilities for just a few days. Awwwwwwwwwwwh felt good! But now we're back.. and I'm back to work and blogging!
Have a WONDERFUL day... Great evening... and Fabulous week!

So glad you are OK. I was a bit concerned. Is that a "mile a minute" scarf. That is clever! All your work is just beautiful! God Bless you.
