Gifts, Important, Fun, and Practical.

The necklace has a crocheted "chain".


You do recognize this as a mathematical model of hyperbolic space, don't you? The recipient has a sense of humor similar to mine. It seems hardly possible now, but i counted 11 skeins while making this.



My very first attempt at knitted gloves, requested by the recipient. I used cheap yarn and wish I hadn't. A better pair is in the works.

Jesus is God's gift to me, and to you, too.

Misc.

Election: I got all excited and I just keep in mind that God is in control, not Dems or Reps.

At the poll we ran into the local yarn shop owner, Lorene. She's just been diagnosed with breast cancer. Prayers please.

I've done a little embroidery for her,...by HIS stripes are we healed. It has Eternal meaning.

love

peace
patience

kindness
faith
meekness

The Day of...

Some of you will understand when I say that Scofield (ok, a Bible teacher) talks of the Day of Jehovah and the Day of Judgement. J. Vernon McGee, if I understand correctly, speaks of the Day of Christ, which is the rapture, and the Day of the Lord, which is the tribulation. So I would think that the Day of Judgement (S) and Day of the Lord (M) would be the same. However, as I go through the Scofield verse chain for D of Jehovah, it's quite confusing, since there seem to be verses relating to both before and after the rapture. Perhaps when Mr. P is awake he can help.

I'm trying to build a light box out of cardboard, tissue paper, and tape. I'd rather knit or crochet one.

Then, there is the matter of photographs of any quality at all. I'm far behind on picturing product. Much thumb sucking (No, I don't really put thumb to mouth, I just pity Patti.)

Well, tomorrow is another day. God bless you.

Wednesday, September 8, 2010

surprise!

(1st sentence edited because of embarassment over public thumb sucking.)
1 Cor 2:9But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love ... (the Lord).

Recently I've been hearing that we'll spending eternity in the throne room praising God. May the Lord forgive me, but it seems to me that might get old. (Of course I don't understand the concept of eternity--one big NOW?)

However, I'm convinced tonight that I'll be given a great big surprise present!

What HAS God prepared for us? Merry Eternity.

Comfort

1 Thessalonians 4:16-18 (New King James Version)

16 For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. 17 Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord. 18 Therefore comfort one another with these words.

by His grace

For we also once were foolish ourselves, disobedient, deceived, enslaved to various lusts and pleasures, spending our life in malice and envy, hateful, hating one another. But when the kindness of God our Savior and His love for mankind appeared, He saved us, not on the basis of deeds which we have done in righteousness, but according to His mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewing by the Holy Spirit, whom He poured out upon us richly through Jesus Christ our Savior, that being justified by His grace we might be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life.

Titus 3:3-7

Love Song

Falling in love with the Book, fifty years after first opening it with awe, turning to John, and reading about the Word.

Falling in love with the Word
Somewhen perhaps falling at His feet and
touching the scars.
Walking with Jesus and holding His hand is the dream
But after all He IS the Lion of Judah.

Walking with Him,
feeling like a child being praised,
Being close to him is the best reward.
Not deserving a reward,
having failed at most everything,
Surely his mercy allowing closeness to Him once.
There is hope of being with him,
the church being His bride.
Surely the love described in the Song applying.
Having been forgiven a lot,
Loving Him more and more.
God, Creator, Savior, Lawyer, Satisfier, Sovereign King, Focus of devotion

Loving You more and more.

No more rants

I'm a little ashamed of my previous political rants. We've stopped listening to the programs that get us over emotional. The voting booth expresses our voice.

Politics and the Important Stuff

I heard some new stats regarding politics. A Gallup poll found that only 36% of Americans look on the Tea Party with favor.

The current Administration has managed to offend both the UK and Israel. What can I say?

Ah, the Important stuff!

HE IS RISEN!

Fringe?

I've never been to a Tea Party, and I deplore the racist remarks made by some partiers in D.C.

However, more than half of Americans approve of the movement and 62% say it has the right amount or not enough influence on the Republican Party. (I read an AP article.)

There are indeed probably some fringe types who party, but if so many people approve of it, it is the fringe?

The group recently arrested for plotting to kill police are indeed the fringe. Every article I read about it points out that they called themselves Christian. If a guy named Mohammad is arrested for terrorist plots in America, his religion is not mentioned.

I am a Christian, but I do not count myself as part of any group to which the police plotters are members.

I don't like the subtle connections being made by the media and Certain Famous People.

And then there is Israel.

Gen 12:3
I will bless those who bless you,
and whoever curses you I will curse;
and all peoples on earth
will be blessed through you."

The United Socialist States of America appears to be heading for trouble.

I find Sarah Palin an embarrassment for several reasons, but I do agree with her that We Need to Take Our Country Back.

Praying.

Capstone to the Day

Our favorite radio station failed again. Fitting.

I lived in a country with socialized medicine. It doesn't work, for a variety of reasons.

Romans 8 has been a consolation. He really is in control. I'm looking up and rejoicing.

Be Heard

Please speak out against the Slaughter (name of congressman, but appropriate) Solution now before the House. It passes the healthcare bill with all the pro-abortion provisions under the guise of a rules vote, including the language "the Senate bill will be deemed as passed". If you don't have a relationship with your Reps you might want to sign the ACLJ petion at aclj.org.

AHA!!

I was reading in Romans and 1 Cor about the freedom we have in Christ. Ifeel absolutely free to crochet Resurrection Scenes.

New and inproved version is coming.

Friday, February 12, 2010

AHA!

I was just reading in Mt where Jesus said that whoever keeps these commandments and teaches them will be great in the Kingdom, He meant the Mosaic Law! I had been thinking that as a Christian I can choose whether or not to keep them. Well,what's that about graven images....hmmmmm

The Easter Project, at long last

















This set is most like the account in Matthew.

It took us awhile to design and make it.

For years we have been wondering why there are commercial Nativity Scenes but few if any Resurrection Scenes.

A VALENTINE FROM JESUS - DEBBY HARRIS's MySpace Blog | WOUNDED ANGELS MINISTRY

YES!

Whoo hoo! How 'bout that space shuttle!?

I'm reading in Ezekial. Dem bones is good, but there's a bunch in there that is not happy. I'm looking forward to the NT.

However, I've been known to be unhappy all through the book of John because I knew that Judas was going to do it again. There is a definately happy ending , though.

"Dem bones,dem bones, dem dry bones..."

Surrounded by LOVE

It's been a lovely evening.

First, I had some wonderful contacts with Christians on the internet. Then there is the usual loving presence of Mr. P. After that, our usual radio station for classical music failed and we ended up with a Christian station playing soft sweet love songs to our Lord Jesus Christ.

Then a good sermonette reminded me of my baptism and early love for the Lord. It also reminded me of my later falling away and eventual death to that life and rebirth.

God's love comes atumblin' down. I am surrounded by it.

May you be surrounded by His love too.

My new words to an old song

I believe this song is a traditional spiritual about Christmas. One for the little bitty baby...

These are my words for Easter (aka Resurrection Day.)

Children go where I send you.
How shall I send you?
I'm gonna send you one by one.
One for my precious Savior,
Who died, died and rose again.

Children go...
I'm gonna send you two by two.
Two for Peter and John,
One for my...

Children.. three by three.
Three for the three Marys.
Two..
One..

Making the words fit the tune requires a little adjustment.

My stanzas for four and five didn't really turn out well. Any ideas?

Steph won!

Steph of HonorCrownedCrafts.etsy.com won the contest in the post below.

I numbered all 10 answers and asked Mr. P (Who is blind and therefore couldn't cheat on this, but he doesn't cheat anyway) to pick a number between 1 and 10. He said the number corresponding to Steph's answer.

I appreciated all who answered and enjoyed everyone of them.

So, I skipped King David because I've misplaced a couple of tapes from my KJV audio Bible, and took up again in 1Kings1. I'll listen to the tapes when I run across them. There is an awful lot of smiting going on.

When, oh when, will people learn to stop worshiping false gods and killing their own children (see references to molech). My false god seems to be food. and pride and... serotonin? That's the "happiness"hormone. Eating carbs stimulates it.

So, congrats to Steph and forgive my tedious confessions.

God bless us, every one.♥P

Would Jesus Blog? and Giveaway

I'm open to other opinions, especially His, but at first thought, I don't think so. He really is the Great Communicator and, now, wouldn't need to blog. I think He is quite good at communicating supernaturally.

Back then, I don't think so because He didn't come to the Gentile world.

Any opinions?

Since no one is answering, here's an incentive. Answer the Jesus Blog question and get a chance to win a $5 gift certificate from P and P Homemades on Etsy. (If there is any really bad stuff in your answer I won't publish it.)

The Book

To keep a record of my reading, I'm in Deuteronomy.

In Numbers, I was again amazed, not to say amused, that God would tell Moses to anoint the priest' right ear (head, in another place) right thumb, and right big toe. I finally got around to asking Mr. P about it. He knows a lot more about the Bible than I do.

It's to anoint what they thought, what they did, and how they walked.

Lord God, anoint my head, my right thumb, and my right toe.

God bless us, every one.
