Monthly Archives: November 2009

I read a very wise quote today…

…I wish I knew who said it.

“Bibles that are falling apart  usually belong to people who are not.”
~Author Unknown~

Today…and everyday…I am grateful for God’s word.

Blessings,
Julie

No I haven’t forgotten…

…NaBloPoMo (or whatever :-)). I have just three letters to explain myself. F. L. U.  And for those of you who wonder, yes I do occasionally feel like fly paper for any bug that’s out there, but really—better me than a little baby or someone really struggling with an awful disease, right? Besides, it gives me an excuse to whine a bit :-).

But since you would probably just pull out the cheese and your tiny violins, I shall change the subject to something far more interesting.  I actually have done a bit of stitching and a bit of knitting and I have loads of things in my camera to post. Now…wasn’t that exciting? Bad-dum-bump….

As a small token of my earnestness in trying to return to blogdom, I did update my 2009 finishes page. That should give y’all an idea of what’s coming in the way of photos!  I promise…soon.

So in the immortal words of…someone (gimme a break-I’m downing Nyquil!)… ‘I SHALL RETURN!’ (Or so’s my doctor tells me, providing I’m a good girl, get lots of rest and pay my bill. :-))

Stay well!
Blessings,
Julie

p.s. I am thankful for my doctor-who puts up with a good deal from me, Nyquil and my warm blankie today!

On this third of November…

…I am thankful for our families. For their on-going legacies of love, faith, comfort and support.

Blessings,

30 Days of Thanksgiving…

…I just read about this in a wonderful blog called 4:53 a.m. It seems a very good idea to me to spend time rehearsing blessings rather than dwelling on all that is wrong (or perceived wrong) in the world around me or in my world. Since I am starting this on the 2nd of November I have a day to catch up on as I start.

Yesterday, the first, I was home sick with the flu. I either curled up in bed or sat in my chair covered with a soft (and hand knitted by moi) afghan. I was and am thankful for a warm house, leisure to rest when I need rest and better living through chemistry (Thera-flu TM-no commercial intended, but it works for me).
Today, I am thankful for my DH who always…always…cares for me in a gentle, tender way that oftentimes is far more than I deserve. He is a gift from God and, after 26+ years I can still say I am so very blessed by my life’s partner.

What are you thankful for today? How would the world change if we focused on thankfulness? How would our perspective change? How would MY perspective change.

Blessings,
Julie

NaBloPoMo 2009

…or the National Blog Posting Month challenge. Can I post every day for the month of November? I have a PIF to post (both a beautiful one received and an offer), several finishes and holiday stitching to share…so stay tuned. I’m going to try!

Blessings,
Julie
