This little fellow needs to be heading south!

Just showing off some of my daughter's charity work!

Praise the Lord, O my soul,
and forget not all His benefits-
who forgives all your sins
and heals all your diseases,
who redeems your life from the pit
and crowns you with love and compassion,
who satisfies your desires with good things
so that your youth is renewed like the eagles.
Ps. 103:2-5

A volunteer pumpkin!!
I guess I should let the birds plant my pumpkins
from now on!!

Another generous, wonderful donation of yarn!
Oh, I can hardly wait to get my needles into this!!!

Let this be written for a future generation,
that a people not yet created
may praise the Lord:
"The Lord looked down from His sanctuary on high,
from heaven He viewed the earth,
to hear the groans
of the prisoners and
release those condemned to death."

Ps. 102: 18-20

Enter His gates with thanksgiving
and His courts with praise,

For the Lord is good
and His love endures forever;
His faithfulness continues through all generations.

spring: early morning tulip

fall: frosted canna lily

Whoever wants to become great among you
must be your servant,

and whoever wants to be first
must be your slave-
just as the Son of Man did not come to be served,
but to serve,
and to give His life as a ransom for many.

Matt. 20:26-27

"Everyone who has left houses or brothers or sisters
or father or mother or children or fields
for My sake will receive a hundred times
as much and will inherit eternal life.
But many who are first will be last,
and many who are last will be first."

Matt. 19:29-30

Osage Orange
aka: Hedge Apple

Look what showed up at my doorstep yesterday!!
This will make lots of wonderful, warm items!!

Then Jesus said to His desciples,
"I tell you the truth,
it is hard for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven.
Again, I tell you, it is easier for a camel
to go through the eye of a needle
than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God."
Matt. 19:23-24

Progress update on the
Honey Sweater.

Shout for joy to the Lord,

make music to the Lord with the harp,
with the harp and the sound of singing with trumpets
and the blast of the rams horn-
shout for joy before the Lord, the King.
Ps 98:4-6

Morning Glory
buds, in full bloom and seeds pods.

you can say to this mountian,

Nothing will be impossible for you."

First frost.

this mornings sunrise.

He (Jesus) replied, "When evening comes, you say,
"It will be fair weather, for the sky is red,"
and in the morning, "Today it will be stormy,
for the sky is read and overcast."

You know how to interpret the appearance of the sky,
but you cannot interpret the signs of the times."
Matt. 16:2-3

It is with great honor that I can say that my charity knitting will be taking a back seat for a little while. Hubby has finally asked me to knit a sweater for him! After 3 yrs of saying that he wouldn't wear one, he has decided that he needs a sweater this winter!
Here is the pattern that he picked out!
(Quite the challenge for me!)
But if he is going to pick out the one he likes, I am going to make it for him!!

And here is the progress as of this morning:

He picked out the yarn!
Beautiful color, huh?!
I am needing to make some changes to the pattern due to needing a larger size.

Of course, I will still have hats for charity on the needles. I know that there are going to be times when my fingers will want to knit and my brain will not be able to function. But for those of you who check daily for charity updates, there may be a few days between pictures!
I will be back to the charity knitting as soon as possible because I know that the need is just so great, especially this year.

Let the heavens rejoice,
let the earth be glad;

let the sea resound, and all that is in it;
let the fields be jubilant, and everything in them.
Then all the trees of the forest will sing for joy;
they will sing before the Lord, for He comes,
He comes to judge the earth.

He will judge the world in righteousness
and the peoples in His truth.

Ps. 96:11-13

My daughter has joined me in knitting for charity.
Here are just a few of her first items.

She needed to take time out and knit
something for herself!!

For Your make me glad by Your deeds, O Lord;
I will sing for joy at the works of Your hands.
Ps. 92:4

worked with RedHeart SuperSaver.
I tried to start this sweater many months ago. I just could not get it come out right and I couldn't figure out what I was doing wrong. So I tucked it away in a corner and let it just rest for awhile. Then a few weeks ago, I found it, got it out and tried again. It came together beautifully! This will go to a local charity to brighten a child's day and keep them warm. It certianly brightens my day! It was a fun and challenging sweater to do!

remembering summer!

O Lord God Almighty, who is like you?
You are mighty, O Lord,
and Your faithfulness surrounds You.
Ps. 89:8

I was given this yarn and asked to make
some baby items.
Not sure yet what it will all become yet, but so far
a little sweater is emerging and coming along great!

Colors of the season.

A thousand may fall at your side,
ten thousand at your right hand,
but it will not come near you.
You will only observe with your eyes
and see the punishment of the wicked.
