I did take a break last Friday evening, Nov.1st. and went to a local event that is the official start of the Christmas shopping season. It was a great time with one of my friends. When we left the event, we went to a restaurant and had time to get caught up for a little bit. I do so enjoy getting together with friends that make a difference in my life.
Then on Monday afternoon I was fortunate enough to be able to get together with another friend for a couple of hours to just hang out and catch up. It is kinda like fuel for your vehicle when you have been running on fumes! You just can't wait for the next time you get to re-fuel. ggg It is always great to catch up with these ladies.
So, a lady on one of the Yahoo forums I am on was interested in seeing some of my embroidery that I used to do. I don't have any digital files and I did not have any intention of scanning in all the pics, so I took pics of pics. Before hand, they are not great, but, I hope that they are good enough, at least, to give a good idea of some of the stuff I've done.
The first four pics are of stuff I have in my kitchen. I really enjoy them. They are certainly not fancy, neither am I, so it's a perfect match. ggg I also have some coffee cups and saucers in frame just like these.
As I leave you today, I am reminded that Thanksgiving is just around the corner. I do hope and pray that as the days tick off and Thanksgiving gets closer, that you will evaluate all the reasons you have to be thankful. 1 Thessalonians 5:18 says, "give thanks in all circumstances". This is actually a command. It does not say we get to pick and choose when we give thanks. It say, "give thanks in ALL circumstances". So, God is reminding me, that no matter what comes up, be joyful, pray continually, and thank Him all the time. When times are good, thank God! When times are not so good, thank God! God is at work in all of our circumstances! Circumstances change, God doesn't!! Thank God He never changes! So, what are you thankful for? Praise Him for that. God bless you.
hugs, y'all, Patty
