Quilt Club Meeting!

Amy and I headed off on a fogy morning to go to quilt club meeting with friends.

After the meeting we went to the Gathering Grounds for lunch.

Amy and I split a gluten free ham/cheese/mushroom/asparagus sandwich - very tasty!

Audrey on Homemaking



“It's sad if people think that's (homemaking) a dull existence  [but] you can't just buy an apartment and furnish it and walk away. It's the flowers you choose, the music you play, the smile you have waiting. I want it to be gay and cheerful, a haven in this troubled world. I don't want my husband and children to come home and find a rattled woman. Our era is already rattled enough, isn't it?” 
― Audrey Hepburn

Your World

Mere Edges


"He stretches out the north over empty space;
He hangs the earth on nothing.

He binds up the water in His thick clouds,
Yet the clouds are not broken under it.

He covers the face of His throne,
And spreads His cloud over it.

He drew a circular horizon on the face of the waters,
At the boundary of light and darkness.

The pillars of heaven tremble,
And are astonished at His rebuke.

He stirs up the sea with His power,
And by His understanding He breaks up the storm.

By His Spirit He adorned the heavens;
His hand pierced the fleeing serpent.

Indeed these are the mere edges of His ways,
And how small a whisper we hear of Him!
But the thunder of His power who can understand?”

- Job 26:7-14

Joyful


“Life need not be easy to be joyful. Joy is not the absence of trouble, but the presence of Christ.”
