it is finished!

Hello!  have not had a chance to post in several weeks, but one item I have been working on is finished!!   In the photo you see a part of a quilt I made for my daughter……I began the project last October, for her birthday in December…. my idea was to embroider her favorite Ponies (from My Little Pony Friendship is Magic)
 and it was just about complete in time for her birthday! Hooray! but then…. the gift started to grow into something more than 3 embroidered pony pictures :)   I hope to show more on this blog in frequent posts!I learned so very many new things!! by way of many mistakes :D

(Jesus said) I have glorified thee on the earth:
 I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do.
 john 17:4

who hears your voice?

Blessed be the Lord, because he hath heard the voice of my supplications.


The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusted in him, and I am helped: therefore my heart greatly rejoiceth: and with my song will I praise him…… Save thy people, and bless thine inheritance:  feed them also, and lift them up forever. psalm 28:6-9

God is so faithful – no matter what – and though times are bad, He is always good – cry out to Him! He is eager to hear, loves to show mercy, and ready to save ~

shine brighter

when it appears that things are not going along swimmingly……

the light shines even brighter :)

Unto the upright there ariseth light in the darkness: [he is] gracious, and full of compassion, and righteous. …
He shall not be afraid of evil tidings: his heart is fixed, trusting in the LORD.  psalm 112: 4, 7

That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man;
That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love,
May be able to comprehend with all saints what [is] the breadth, and length, and depth, and height;  
And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.
Unto him [be] glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen.  ephesians 3:16-21

Shed Abroad

Shed Roof by misteraitch A shed roof behind Trefaldighetskyrkan (Trinity church), SE Sweden

This Shed is in Sweden – Shed Abroad…..

More importantly, shed abroad is the Love Of God
we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience;
And patience, experience; and experience, hope:  
And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.  

Romans Chapter 5 – the whole chapter is worth reading right now

times of grave danger

In Times of Grave Danger by franticmeerkat.etsy.com

  On the news, in the media, the web, where ever, what ever, 
~ not everyone who names the name of Jesus Christ is of Him   
                 …don’t get in the boat with them.

Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, for many false prophets have gone out into the world.

By this you know the Spirit of God: every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God,
 and every spirit that does not confess Jesus is not from God. This is the spirit of the antichrist, which you heard was coming and now is in the world already. 

Little children, you are from God and have overcome them, for he who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.   1 john 4:1-4
