There is a word for all seasons in the Bible and I love the verse in Song of Solomon 2. 11-13 that speaks of spring and even times of refreshing from the Lord, 'lo, the winter is past, the rain is over and gone;
The flowers appear on the earth; the time of the singing of birds is come, ... The fig tree putteth forth her green figs, and the vines with the tender grape give forth a good smell.' I'm so glad the Lord blesses us so abundantly and fragrantly and calls us to bear fruit for His glory.
Well , I also managed to squeeze in a little stitchin' therapy time this week and thought it was about time I made a start on some patterns i ordered over a month ago from Buttermilk Basin along with some woolen fabric. As I love pineapples, I started this first and here's as far as I've got with it~
I loved the pic in Country Sampler of the twigs and chicks and put together this little display, and made the wee chicks to hang on the twigs. Simple, yet sweet for spring and makes me smile!!:-)
Last week this very special little pillow was returned to me. I say returned because I had given this to my husband's grandmother on her 100th birthday almost 3 years ago. As many of you know, she passed away in January and I am so pleased to get it back to remember her by as I chose the 100th Psalm especially for her 100th and the verse I stitched on it really summed up her life. It was one of my earliest attempts at stitching and now it has a special spot on my rocking chair.
Today is another special day for our family as our one and only son turns 9 ! so HAPPY BIRTHDAY DAVID! You can see all that's left of his chocolate birthday cake because he takes after me and loves chocolate too! Scrummy! Excuse me while I lick my lips - that was good!
I'm off to consume more calories and hope you all have a great week! Thanks for visiting - your friendship is so heartwarming!
