Lord, You have assigned me my portion and my cup; You have made my lot secure. The boundary lines have fallen for me in pleasant places; surely I have a delightful inheritance.

God does not give us overcoming life-He gives us life as we overcome.
The strain of life is what builds our strength. If there is no strain, there will be no strength. Once you face the strain, you will immediately get the strength. When you give of yourself spiritually, you get more strength. God never gives us strength for tomorrow, or for the next hour, but only for the strain of the moment.
O. Chambers.

The cotton squares are put together!!
I am so excited about this blanket!! I think it came together much better than I had thought it would! And it really was alot of fun to make!
Everytime I look at it, I see something different! Hubby says it is a kailidascope!!
It is hard to tell in this picture, but I did put a crochet shell stitch edging on it.
The finished size is about 39X57.

I trust in Your unfailing love; my heart rejoices in Your salvation.

Friday was the cookout to celebrate!

I took SO many pictures! There is no way to show them all here!
I must just say that everything went so perfect!
My daughter told me yesterday that everything was exactly like what she always wanted! Even the groom got to do his b-b-q cooking! Everyone was happy!!

I will praise You, O Lord, with all my heart;
I will tell of all Your wonders.
I will be glad and rejoice in You;
I will sing praise to Your name, O Most High.
Ps. 9:1-2

Today is the BIG day!!
My daughter is getting married!!
There is no way to describe all the emotions running through me! So I will just say that I am so thrilled and excited and happy!

Loomed hat.
Worked while riding the bike.
Ok, riding extra miles this last week has not made me loose any weight for this big day, but I sure do feel better, so I will probably try to keep it up! And like I said before, it seems to be the only way I can get any hats made right now!

But let all who take refuge in You be glad,
let them ever sing for joy.

Ps. 5:11
