this van was about the best gift ever!

to us a son is given,
and the government will be on His shoulders.
And He will be called
Wonderful, Counselor,

Everlasting Father,
Prince of Peace.
Of the increase of His government
and peace
there will be no end.

Lord, who may dwell in Your sanctuary?

The power of a square.
I was asked to make just one square. 
It will be put together with others squares and given
to a dear friend who is having some serious health issues.
I have been feeling bored and frustrated with my knitting
 lately and didn't know if I really felt like committing
to even one little square. 
But I did. 
Amazing how this one little square has changed my entire 
attitude! I am now feeling so very blessed
and thankful and I am again feeling
inspired with my fiber work. 
The power of doing something for someone else
just because. Not because it is needed
or asked for. But just because.

Each of you should look
 not only to your own interests, 
but also to the interest of others. 
Phil 2:4
