Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. ~Philippians 4:8~

Jeremiah 10: 2-5

2Thus saith the Lord, Learn not the way of the heathen, and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven; for the heathen are dismayed at them.

3For the customs of the people are vain: for one cutteth a tree out of the forest, the work of the hands of the workman, with the ax.

4They deck it with silver and with gold; they fasten it with nails and with hammers, that it move not.

5They are upright as the palm tree, but speak not: they must needs be borne, because they cannot go. Be not afraid of them; for they cannot do evil, neither also is it in them to do good.

Thank You Missy!

Well, I was waiting to post until my Dear Husband loaded some pictures for me. Turns out the camera is just not cooperating, and may well need to be replaced. I wanted to share a picture of the lovely journal Missy over at SpringBeanThings sent me from a recent 100thPost Giveaway. It is bound in very cute and whimsical Japanese fabric, and I just really wanted to show it off! It will come in very handy for noting ideas and projects. Like I mentioned to Missy, one can never have too many journals. She is certainly a very talented crafter! I will just have to share a picture of it just as soon as I have my camera up and running again.

Fortunately, before my camera problems, I was able to save a couple of pictures of the second Acorn hat I'm making for my Grandson. It is also made of 100% wool, but in two slightly different colors. I am hoping to complete it before Winter arrives.

I am also trying to finish a padded seating set for his high chair. The first one I made needed a few improvements. I'm hoping this one will be almost perfect. I've even got the Scotchguard on standby. Little ones can be messy eaters!

I Am What I Am

This is a hymn I vividly recall enjoying during my time of 'First Love', that is when I first came to accept the Lord Jesus into my life as my Savior. I heard it sung by a woman, Sister Sheila, whose husband had left her, and she was struggling in life trying to raise her children. I only mention this, because when she sang, you knew she loved the Lord, and all the trials and tribulations she was enduring, only made that love stronger. I only wish I could add the sound of the soulful music that accompanies the lyrics.

I Am What I Am

Lord it must have broke your heart, to send your son away
Knowing all along, the final price he had to pay.
Left his home in Glory and became a common man, and because he did
I Am What I Am;

Well, I'm a child of the King who made everything!
I'm a child of the one who makes my heart to sing!
Songs of joy, songs of praise, I'll sing them all I can
To the One who came, and made me what I am.

Now, I am a woman, and have some children of my own;
I wonder could I send them off somewhere, and all alone.
To help someone, somewhere, somehow, to set a captive free;
Could I do for him, what he did for me?

Well, I'm a child of the King, who made everything!
I'm a child of the one, who makes my heart to sing!
Songs of joy, songs of praise, I'll sing them all I can
To the One who came, and made me what I am.
