deserve?

This is a small portion of a larger project I have been working on – shown are little french knot flower drops…….

I am behind on TAST and have been (probably) too involved in the United States election coming up on November 6….but am so very thankful to live here where we can vote….and to have a military that protects that freedom…. here in the USA are we thankful, or thank less?  do we think we deserve this and that….or do we realize that God does not give us what we deserve, yet heaps blessings upon us?

 Christ Jesus is who He said He was….- folks can debate and fight about voting…
but Lord Jesus Christ is the ONLY way – there is no debating and fighting  with God – He reigns :D

how can you possibly reject the Lord Jesus Christ? only if you reject God’s grace and mercy.  And if so, you will spend eternity without grace and mercy – in God’s wrath – which killed Lord Jesus Christ on the cross as He bore the punishment of all the sins of the world and suffered God’s wrath…so that you, me, would not – …..and  He lives :D

accept or reject – eternity hangs in your choice…

and the next four years? 
 – thanks be to God for the choice

TAST 40 & 39

I have been working on a piece that includes a piece of vintage silk (specifically, a piece of lining from a vintage silk haori – a Japanese short “coat” worn over a kimono), shown here with TAST week #40’s Beaded Hedebo Edge – this was a new stitch for me, and creates a pretty “ruffle” like row. The instructions for this stitch may be found here on pintangle.

The silk reminds me of  charmeuse; this is worked in pearl cotton 8, with little pearl beads……

On the same piece I have worked some patchwork of print cotton…

to which I added week #39’s stitch, Knotted Buttonhole Stitch…. a new stitch for me, and I like it very much….

The stitch was worked in coton a broder, and I had already added the running stitch which you see at the top of the knotted buttonhole stitches – I like them together :)

Come and join along with TAST, you will learn new stitches, and meet others who are stitching along too – no pressure, but great opportunities for learning, creating and gathering wonderful information from experienced and gifted embroiderers!

For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him. 2 corinthians 5:21
He did that for you – your part is accepting on His terms


12 years ago someone took the time to leave a tract, which I found, that explained the gospel of Jesus Christ.  
 I read it… I then looked  up all the statements in a Bible to see if it was true….it was and is. That was exactly when life began – when I confessed my sins to God, turned from them, to Him, and asked Jesus to be my Lord and Saviour – because He paid for all my sins – I could never pay, nor can anyone else – He did it all.  He alone is Saviour.
