For when I am weak, then I am strong
Mon, Feb 13 2012 12:16 PM
2 Corinthians 12:10 ...For when I am weak, then I am strong. I remembered those words last night. Why? I think I was actually listening to God for a change. I can be pretty "bullheaded" as Grandma Koller used to tell me. When I graduated from lay leadership training and became parish ministry assistant at Holy Cross Lutheran Church in Scottsdale, I...

Psalm 116
Sun, Feb 5 2012 7:05 AM
Good morning, Heavenly Father! Actually I've been up all night again coughing and here it is 5:00 am, no sleep for a second night, and I'm saying "good morning". Well, at least it's positive. God, I haven't been too positive for many months now. I'm overwhelmed with health issues again and it's been so long since I've had... Read More...
Going Home

You read that correct...I'm going home! I leave February 22 right after the QCA Get Together. I just need to go home and be in my own surroundings. I talked to my oldest grandson, Christopher today. He was so excited because I'm coming home earlier than planned. He ran to get his step-dad, Nate who was taking a nap. Because my voice still isn't strong... Read More...

Blessed Happy New Year to all!

As we close 2011 and enter 2012, I have to admit I've been a little down this week and I don't even know why exactly. Well, partly because dummy me wasn't thinking last weekend and ate too much ham and other salty foods. The result being that my ankles and legs became swollen again. Then to make matters worse I've been breaking out in hives and... Read More...
First Part of Precious RWYS Project Completed
Fri, Dec 23 2011 12:22 AM
Praise God! I have completed the first part of the RWYS Precious Project and in time for Christmas too! We decided to give them to her husband as a Christmas present for her. The pillows turned out very pretty I think. Tomorrow I begin part 2...the wall hanging. The Lord has truly been with me on this project so far. I normally stitch 7 stitches per inch, but...

Precious RWYS Project cont.
Sun, Dec 18 2011 7:31 AM
I was able to purchase nearly everything needed to complete this most precious project. However, I couldn't find a suitable quilt stencil for the wall hanging. We were only able to go to JoAnn's and Hobby Lobby yesterday. I need to get to a quilt store. Hopefully, that will happen on Monday. I would like to complete the items that are near completion...

UFO Close to Biting the Dust

YIPEE!!!!! Just completed my 2008 Retreat Quilt Top. My friend Sheila is paying to have it quilted by a longarm as my Christmas present. I don't know any in this area, so I'll have to call some friends. This is one of the UFO's that is close to biting the dust! Don't worry I have plenty more, but most of them are small and will only take a weekend... Read More...
Count Down - 2 Days to Go!
Tue, Nov 29 2011 4:56 AM
Thank you Lord Jesus! I just might get out of this rainy climate. I feel like I should be looking for Noah's ark and flagging him down! Of course, with all those animals, he may not have room for any more passengers! If my feet continue to swell, I just might have webbed feet before I know it. Maybe God is turning me into a beautiful swan! You know from an... Read More...
