I have no wisdom or understanding, I just cling in faith to God's Wisdom.
"...hard pressed, but not crushed: perplexed, but not in despair: persecuted, but not abandoned:
struck down, but not destroyed." 2Corinthians 4:8-9
"For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that
far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen.
For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal."
|Crocheted Rocks-I have never done this before but for some reason it was|
therapeutic, maybe because there was no pattern and I am always a little
surprised that it works. I've made nine so far-not sure what I'm going to do with
nine crocheted rocks:)
|A baby blanket-our oldest daughter Sarah is expecting|
her #4, a baby girl in September. I chose the ripple
pattern since chevrons are so popular right now.
I must not ever forget that single crochets with a small
hook can make for a slow and tedious project however I can
now count to eleven up and eleven down while doing lots
of other things.
|My Mother, Cousin Louise and me.|
|Chicken dinner at Frankenmuth with the cousins:)|
I wish we could have done this with my Grandmother.

|Birch Run Farm mid 1940's|
|My great grandmother is in the striped dress standing behind her father|
at Birch Run Farm around 1893. There were eventually nine children.
|I love this picture of my grandmother's 96 year old cousin telling family stories.|
The binder in his lap is full of family history and pictures.
Notice, too his Bible on the table by his chair.
What an inspiration to me.
|Me-relaxing on a wonderfuly comfortable lounge chair on the beach|
