Sorry about the little glare in the above picture - it's from a pretty calendar I have in my sewing room. Again, I just want to jump in and go to that little country church (with no face masks and no social distancing) with the American flag proudly displayed, and drive home in that red pick-up truck!
As a matter of fact, this brings me to something that I was thinking about this past week (or should I say, a question that I asked myself) - there is reason to be sad these days with so much going on this past year (and continues to go on), but I couldn't help asking myself if part of the sadness is because we are beginning to realize how much (before covid) we took for granted and we can't take it back? How much did the Lord provide for us and we failed to be thankful? The freedoms we had and now (in part) have been taken away or, at least, lessened in some way? If (or when) things get back to "normal", will we continue in our old ways of taking things for granted or will we have learned to always give thanks?
I have pondered these things lately - I will leave you to ponder them on your own. Maybe there is a reason for this time we're going through? What do you think?
Well.......as the post title suggests, I have quite a bit to share with you today so let's get going! 😊
This past week has been such a good week in that my strength, energy, and motivation in getting things done shone through (I do, however, pray for that every morning!).
On Monday (Labor Day) - since it was a cool, wet day here I chose to take this day "off" and do some stitchery all day long (which felt SO good). I sat in my sewing room, put my iPad where I could watch it and watched quilting shows and cooking shows, and pulled out several projects that I had started and seem to always be a work-in-progress. Here is what I worked on:
