“Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord” Psalm 33:12

Tomorrow, November 4th, millions of Americans will have the opportunity to elect new leaders of government. If you live in the United States, I encourage you to be among them and exercise your right to vote. I encourage you to vote for both your national and your local leaders.
While the Bible does not command us to vote, it does command us to be good citizens wherever we live. One way we can be a good citizen, honor God, and assist in guiding our nation is by voting.
There’s no doubt about it, voting is both a duty and a privilege. However, I realize that some people won’t take the time and trouble to vote because they don’t believe their ballot will make much of a difference. That’s not true. Statistics show that many elections have come down to only a handful of votes.What would happen if most people felt that their vote didn’t really matter and didn’t bother to vote? It would mean that our country’s future would be decided by only a few of its citizens— who perhaps don’t hold the same convictions as yours.
November 4th is a day of opportunity for America. It’s a day to stand up for what we believe in. It’s a day to voice those beliefs and be heard. It’s a day to take the time to vote as we honor our Christian heritage, and bring glory to God. For “blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord!

**Dear Lord, in this upcoming election, I pray that You will move in the hearts of Your people in this nation to vote. I pray You will work in and through our leaders to guide and bless this nation – may it be so in all nations, Lord! Guide us by your Spirit, in Jesus' Name, Amen.**

TESTED New Square.....
This is called *Heart of a Hippie* (7" square) designed by SmoothFox (Donna)
I was given the pleasure of testing her pattern for her. It worked up quite nicely... and was easily transformed into a 12" square by additional rows.
12" square..............
with a few more rows... Donna was able to create yet another great square to use for blankets.
Thank you Donna for letting me test this one for you.... I really like it!!!! It came out great in Christmas colors too.
These three squares are going to a lovely lady in my crochet yahoo group. She has requested 12" squares in Christmas colors and these are the ones I made for her. I sure hope she likes them.
Well.. you all know me by now... off to get a fresh cup of coffee hang up a few clothes and crochet till bedtime.
Have a Wonderful evening...
