Okay, I'm Back

But I have to share this one more thing--you see, the God of my understanding wears this most lovely quilted patchwork coat. And this coat has two HUGE pockets, one on each side. One of the pockets is a 'bottomless' pocket, and I can go tuck in all of my worries, troubles, tears, rants, whatever, whenever I'm ready to let go of them, and He just takes care of them. ;P The other one is where I put all of my joys, and treasures, and blessings--and I ususally have to just STUFF them in there cause that pocket has a way of filling up. Okay, there, now my secret is out. That's MY vision---and I'm sticking to it!! LOL

I've posted a picture of the beginning of my January Bluework Snowman, just to prove that I really have started on it. *laugh* No picture yet of my AD...that will come, in time! :) The next picture is what it looks like outside with winds howling, to boot! And the third picture is where I'm headed again---in front of the fire with a cup of tea. :P

Its okay to ramble here...I used to vent MAJOR everyday in my quilt chat when my husband was deployed and the youngest son was living with a black cloud over his head. They just loved me and let me release all that STEAM. Can that patchwork coat God has on have ALOT of brights and blues in it? If so..I'm with ya! lolol...I'm going to look at that bread book. I just realized I forgot to give you the rest of that sweet roll recipe! I'll e-mail you later

Hi thanks for dropping by my blog, I look forward to seeing what you are up to, can't believe the difference in the weather it is so hot and dry here, a few days of snow would be great.

That outside view looks soooo cold - your fire is just the place to snuggle up in front of and get down to some serious stitching

I hope you enjoy some time by the fire and are able to relax.

Anige, keep warm by the fire, & I guess we all have these wonders & doubts.

One of my sons said to me, regarding a coming test for some mysterious spinal problem, "Please remember, I dont want to live if I am just a 'head in a bed' with no quality of life". I tried to tell him he is worrying too much, & some people still find the strength to wish to live, even in those circumstances.

Keep warm -& hugs from here!

Another hug, just for you, as you struggle with the burden of a heavy heart. The pockets on the quilted, patchwork coat are a lovely visual... I'm going to remember that one, particularly the one stuffed full to overflowing with blessings. Thanks for sharing the photos, that water looks COLD! I hope the tea helps, I'm sending peaceful thoughts.

Hi Angie, I love your description of your God, very peaceful and comforting...*VBS*
I read back down til the post about Randy's eye. It sounds like a detached retina, the blackness part. I have no clue about the redness or pain, unless it's infected. It won't help much now, but if it's an optm. your seeing or a specialist, there is an ONCALL dr. that you could have accessed. Don't let them push you around with no dr. til Thursday in the future. We only get this one pair of eyes. Sorry I am so late in getting here, hope things turn out ok, I'll keep you all in my prayers(the boys too)Hugs, Finn
