It has felt good to be "back in the saddle" again after our Christmas break. I do love the life of academia! I often tease my beloved professor-husband that it is why I stick with him- the vacation time!
New on my site this week:
What's Happening in the Quilt Studio- It has felt so good to get the studio organized and safe for the new kitty too. Come see the UFO that I am determined to finish this year and consider joining me with one of your own to complete-let's encourage one another! O rmaybe this is the year you want to make your first quilt; let me know how I can help in your quilting journey. Are there tutorials you would like to see? Advice you need?
Freebie Thursday-A bird and a 2014 BOM for your quilting enjoyment.
Psalm 119:47-48-haha, the California road crews must have their hands busy keeping track of cows on the road-God has made it quite easy for us to be aware of the dangers ahead.
Psalm 119:49-56 -on Christ the Solid Rock I stand and if you look really closely at the photo you will see a seagull making his stand on this rock.
Psalm 119:57-64-I need to spend my days getting to know the God I serve-for in that process my love for Him will grow, my desire to obey will increase, my whole being will improve as I set my mind in Christ.
Psalm 119:65-72- How should we respond to affliction?
Blessed New Year- first in a series sharing how Ken and I ended 2013 and began 2014. First installment: off to California...
Good Reads from Around the Web
Missions: Rescuing from Hell and Renewing the World-Okay, maybe the reason I love this post is that John Piper agrees with what I have been saying for years-but this is a really good post on what missions should be all about. Our churches have got to stop trying to engage the culture by looking like it and get back to sharing the Gospel in order to transform the culture. If we really want to work towards social change we have got to stop bringing bandaids and give them the cure-Jesus Christ and his death and resurrection.
Twitter 101-Jesse Johnson over at The Cripplegate has started lessons for those of us who are not very twitter savvy. I like the idea of using it to streamline my blog reading: letting others sort through the masses of posts out there and read those that have caught their attention. Of course this means I need to have some people to follow on Twitter that read a lot of blogs and share my views-Thank goodness I have a few of those already.
Don't Waste Your Weakness in 2014-John Piper with some interesting thoughts. What happens if we focus on our weaknesses rather than our strengths?
Blessings to you all,
I am a wife, a mother, a quilter, and most of all a follower of Jesus Christ.
