Trying to get better about making daily entries to my blog again. So, here is something I started a couple months ago and never followed through on. Quotes on Thurdays (knitting or otherwise).
I stopped at the library last night (yes, I still love to read “real” books not electronic ones) and got out a book by Christian author Max Lucado. Friends have been reading his books and are always so blessed. Thought it was time that I did too. I got out a book on fear. I am filled with lots of different fears. Some of them I have “under control” – many are OUT OF CONTROL and paralyzes me!
I want to imagine my life without fear. Especially as winter creeps closer day by day. I have lots of anxieties about winter time.
My quote is not from this book, but it is a Max Lucado quote. Enjoy:
“If God had a refrigerator, your picture would be on it. If He had a wallet, your photo would be in it. He sends you flowers every spring and a sunrise every morning… Face it, friend. He is crazy about you!
Okay, knitting talk. The crisp air at night, the days getting shorter….. makes me think about making sure everyone is ready for winter (including me!). My dear Aunt Janice made me (and my girls) hundreds of pair of mittens over the years. She has since lost her vision and the mitten supplied dried up. Last winter I remember putting on the last pair of mittens Aunt Janice made me thinking that I better get my act together over the summer and knit more for myself (my girls won’t wear them anymore). I didn’t. Sigh.
I am no stranger to making the body of the mitten ( almost like making a fat sock) and I will do my mittens with the Magic Loop. What scares me is that darn thumb! Someone tell me it is okay. Feel free to recommend an easy pattern won’t you?
Did you read what I just said in that last paragraph? “What SCARES me…..” I guess I better get reading that book! 🙂
