Thanks for your work yesterday. It seems that many of our new pieces come with some "extras"! Thanks for hanging in there. You are good sports. For a little 'fun' this week, you could practice FS HC HC to the pattern above.(wink, wink).

Look forward to seeing you next week.

Have a good week.

Peace,
Ruth Ann

On the Light Side

A woman dies and goes to heaven, and St. Peter takes her on a tour of heaven. They pass a pit where there are people gnashing their teeth and wailing, and the woman says, "Who's down there?"
St. Peter says, "Oh, those are the Catholics who ate meat on Fridays."
They walk a little farther and there is another pit with more groaning and wailing, and she says "Okay, who's down there?"
St Peter answers, "Those are the Baptists who went to dances."
And a little farther along, there is another pit and people down there gnashing their teeth and crying and ripping their garments, and she says, "And those people?"
And St. Peter says, "Those are the Episcopalians who ate their salads with their dessert forks."

Fearfully and Wonderfully Made

There is a prayer that I love by Macrina Wiederkehr.

O Lord, help me to believe the truth about myself, no matter how beautiful it is.

The last half of the prayer takes a surprising twist, don't you think? My ending line would have been, no matter how painful it is. I think I am trained that way; to turn toward the failures and away from the victories. There is a bit of 'constant striving for betterment and improvement', as well as, constantly 'correcting myself' in there as well. I hope that I didn't pass this along to my children. I hope they know that their value is not measured in their achievements, but just because they are children of God. That is a big JUST! God delights in His children. "The Lord will take great delight in you, he will quiet you with his love, he will rejoice over you with singing." (Zephaniah 3:17)
My hope for you this week is many Ta-daa moments - like the little girl in the picture below. You are worth that...great delight...great rejoicing.
Love you all,
ra
