"Let not the wise man boast of his wisdom
or the strong man boast of his strength
or the rich man boast of his riches,

who exercises kindness, justice 
and righteousness on earth,
for in these I delight,"
declares the Lord.

LOTS of rain. 
More expected today. 

A couple of weeks ago I was looking for some
material. I didn't find what I wanted, but I did 
come across this embroidered tablecloth.
It was about 2/3 finished so I got it out 
thinking that it would only take a few hours to finish.
I was SO wrong! 
I had forgotten how time consuming embroidery is!  
I wanted to put it away again, but now Hubby is 
excited about seeing it on the table.
So I must finish.......

Live as free men,
but do not use your freedom as a cover-up for evil;
live as servants of God. 
1 Peter 2:16
