This guy was having his breakfast in the mulberry tree.
As I got closer to the tree, he went higher and higher.
He ended up taking a little nap up there!
After about an hour, he was ready to come back down.
Obviously, he is waiting for me to leave!

Be on your guard;
stand firm in the faith;
be men of courage;
be strong.
Do every in love.

faith, hope and love.
But the greatest of these is love.

This is 'special' yarn.
My son's girlfriend's grandmother died. They were
very close and she is having a tough time with it.
When they were cleaning out the house, she found this yarn.
I have decided that I need to make her a lapghan with it.
A hug when she needs it.

But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise;
God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong.
He chose the lowly things of this world and the despised things-
and the things that are not- to nullify the things that are,
so that no one may boast before Him.
1 Cor. 1:27-29

You, then why do you judge your brother?
Or why do you look down on your brother?
For we all stand before God's judgment seat.
It is written: " 'As surely as I live,' says the Lord,
'Every knee will bow before Me;
every tongue will confess to God.' "
So then, each of us will give an count of himself to God.
Therefore let us stop passing judgment on one another.
