A 'new' day.

This box full of beautiful hats and scarves was given to me yesterday
to pass along to those in need.

And all this wonderful, fabulous yarn was given to me
to continue my knitting for others!
I am so humbled and thrilled!!

The Lord is near to all who call on Him,
to all who call on Him in truth.

In celebration of the New Year,
this week's topic will be 'new'!

Learning something 'new'!
With receiving 2 sock knitting books, I decided it is time
for me to learn how to knit socks!
Here is my first attempt!
LOL! Yes, you are free to laugh!
But it is fun. I can see many more in my future!

O Lord, what is man that You care for him,
the son of man that You think of him?
Man is like a breath;
his days are like a fleeting shadow.

LOL! Funny story!
I don't have my camera!
And, yes, I am already having withdrawls!
I have knitting to show, but no way to do it!
I will have it back later today.
It's going to be a long day!

For You created my inmost being;
You knit me together in my mother's womb.
I praise You because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
Your works are wonderful,
I know that full well.

The angel said to them,
"Do not be afraid.
I bring you good news of great joy
that will be for all the people.
Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you;
He is Christ the Lord."
Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel,
praising God and saying,
"Glory to God in the highest,
and on earth peace to men
on whom his favor rests."

Luke 2:10-14

and she who was said to be barren is in her sixth month.
For nothing is impossible with God."

Of course, this week's topic will be

a sample of the ice that is coating everything.

The new Honey sweater is finished with the basic
knitting. Now it needs to be 'finished'.

You are my God, and I will give You thanks;
You are my God, and I will exalt You.
Give thanks to the Lord,
for He is good;
His love endures forever.

for there I find delight.

O Lord, who could stand?
But with You there is forgiveness;

Well, it is going to the frog pond.
