What Is It?

It's called "The Weekend Sweater" but I don't know. I have ripped this particular one out once already, I totally took a part another one I started and rolled the yarn into a ball on the side of the skein of yarn. That ball has been agravating the whole process! If we don't get done before Baby Raegan is ready to wear it, we will save it for a Baby Doll. I am having fun making it... really, I am.

It's supposed to be a sweater for Raegan Mae. Karla called today and happily said, "We have a date!" She is scheduled to arrive by C-section on Tuesday morning. I'm praying for everything to go smoothly, Karla and Chris.

I have trouble memorizing verses but I thought I would work on memorizing John 1:1-8. I think I may have learned some of this Chapter in high school ---way back in those good old olden days.

"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him and without Him nothing was made that was made. In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it. There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. This man came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all through him might believe. He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light."

I found some old stuff on a CD that I saved from my first interneting days. It's fun to read old stuff.

What's the best parting gift?
A comb.

Ah-ha, my daughter told my son (names withheld to protect the guilty) "You are so cynical!" Here is something I saved about being cynical...

"A cynic is a man who, when he smells flowers, looks around for a coffin." (H.L.Mencken)

What's the best way to make a pair of trousers last?
Make the shirt first.

One that I always thought was a good quote: "The only people without problems are in cemeteries." Ha!

It is easy to love the people far away. It is not always easy to love those close to us...Bring love into your home for this is where our love for each other must start. -Mother Teresa

Adam says we need to pray that the swelling in Millie's head goes down faster than it is; Doctor's said it is going down too slowly. Debbie says they are lowering the medication to bring up her blood pressure. We learned they were giving that to her because they were also giving her seizure medication that was lowering her blood pressure. The EEG they took while my sisters and I were in Seattle showed no seizure activity going on. "Thank the Good Lord," as Millie always says.

Millie has been sleeping for 23 days.

Those are some cute quotes. :o)

Good luck with the sweater. I can't knit or crochet to save my life. Millie talked me into a Knifty Knitter...I can use that, but that's about it.

I will pray that the swelling goes down faster.

Good Morning,
I checked out Millie's site and there's some pretty exciting stuff going on with her! I'll continue to pray.

I love to crochet, it's now my traveling thing to do. I used to cross-stitch in the car until I got "older eyes".

Mother Theresa had some wonderful quotes didn't she?
