2015 Online Quilt Show

I am so excited!!  Every year about this time my friend Sharon over on Hobbies on a Budget does a very cool online quilt show. No getting out to weather the cold, or the crowds, and it doesn't cost anything. You can browse from the convenience of your home while sitting in bed or on your couch drinking your hot cocoa or coffee.  She has some amazing quilters, both professional and non-professional, display their quilts and tell the stories behind them.  A few years ago I participated by sharing a quilt I made for my mom with photos of our family.  Go HERE to read about it. I am not a big quilter, although I do really enjoy it, when I get a chance to do it.  Last year I made a quilt for my daughter's boyfriend, and hope to enter it in the quilt show this year.  This past November/December I made a t-shirt quilt for a friend of mine. It turned out really pretty, not just your typical sew-all the t-shirts together type quilt.  I hope you'll come back th

Who Is Jesus? by MaryAnn Diorio - A Review

"Does Jesus give tummy aches when you’re bad?" "Does he get mad at   you when you’re naughty?" "Does he laugh at you when you fall down?" Award-winning children’s author Mary Ann Diorio, who holds a doctorate of philosophy, draws  on her experience as a mother, grandmother and teacher to tackle these tough questions in a  heartwarming way in her new children’s book, “Who is Jesus?” Helping parents, grandparents and caregivers answer many questions kids ask, “Who Is Jesus?”  is a delightful and uplifting read that helps children come to know Jesus as love personified and  as someone who cares about them and loves them with a perfect love. “Children ask tough questions that can be particularly challenging to answer,” Diorio says.  “Questions like, ‘Does Jesus love me when I mess up?’ and ‘Did God make me sick?’ The  goal of this book is to help answer these questions from the truth of Scripture, presented in an  engaging and relatable way

Awakening by Tracy Higley - A Review

Kallie Andreas is a mystery, even to herself.   Seven years ago Kallie woke up in a New York City museum, injured and traumatized. Alone and unclaimed. Despite her shattered memories, she's worked her way into a position as assistant curator in that very museum, and now she wants nothing more than to pursue funding for her project--assembling pieces from the ancient Minoans. But then the blackouts start. Lost time, stranded in terrifying danger, frantic visions that can't be real. A threatening phone call may be nothing more than paranoia and madness. Or perhaps not. It's time to start seeing her psychiatrist more often.


18  When I said, My foot slippeth; thy mercy, O  Lord , held me up. 19  In the multitude of my thoughts within me thy comforts delight my soul. Psalm 94:18-19 Maybe things are a little stressful right now, finances are tight, the weather is cold and can get a bit depressing - unless you love winter - someone you love is sick... Remember, God's Word is full of comfort that will delight our souls. Spend some time in His Word!

My One Word for 2015

A few years ago, I found a blog that encouraged readers to choose one word to define their upcoming year. I took the challenge and for the last few years have chosen a word each year to try to learn about and live by. Several of my words have included Meekness, Focus, and Intercession or Prayer. Can you guess this years??
