Showing you bits of the house...as some others are doing on their blogs. I drew inspiration from them...its a nice idea, sort of like having you come by for tea of course. Today's flavor is Licorice Spice herbal tea made by 'Stash'. No sugar needed and the licorice flavor is really nice. This is my bedside lamp and the hankie is one I crocheted with great pleasure several years ago. I found the pattern in a needlework magazine that was using a technique something like stump work where you crochet over a cord to give a raised effect. It is a privilege to learn something new like this and a gift to have the time to do it. Leaving you with a verse..of course. "Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning." James 1:17. I have always loved this verse for it reinforces what I have learned. My feelings, which are full of ups and downs,are not trustworthy but God is. I LOVE the part of this word of God that says...'neither shadow of turning'. We are not perfect, nor always stable..but God is perfect and there 'is no shadow of turning with him'. That comforts my heart. Still a sinner, but a sinner saved by his wonderful grace.
