I Got Hold of a New Toy or...........

maybe it's got hold of me. It's one of those crazy iPads.

I saw somebody with one at work and I thought it looked interesting (or more like intriguing). So I said to myself, "I think I would like to get myself one of those cute little machines". When it was delivered to my home, it looked quite harmless. In fact, when I turned it on I thought, "What a waste of money. I don't even know what I'm supposed to do with thing". But then, my husband showed me around the device a little bit. He also introduced me to the mad, mad, mad world of apps. Now, one would think this thing has been surgically attached to my hands. I NEED HELP, but I don't want help. I want to get more apps.

I have managed to do a little crocheting. I am loving making neck warmers, cowls, mini scarves (whatever suits your fancy). I have a few more to show later. I like to step away from large projects and complete some smaller ones just so I can experience a feeling of accomplishment. Does anyone else do that?

I am working on a lovely tweed suit that I hope to finish and review within the next couple of weeks. Good thing we have such long winters here, since I will still be working on my fall/winter wardrobe clean into March (possibly April).

Meditation Monday
Yesterday, the message was about God's faithfulness to his people and to his word. The Lord constantly reminds us throughout the scriptures that he is faithful. He wants us to know that he can be trusted; and whatever he has promised - that will he do. Just remember, some of God's promises are conditional, if we do what he tells us to do, then he will do what he says he will do.

Only be thou strong and very courageous, that thou mayest observe to do according to all the law, which Moses my servant commanded thee: turn not from it to the right hand or to the left, that thou mayest prosper whithersoever thou goest.
This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.
Joshua 1:7-8

If we can trust God to keep our souls, then we can trust him to keep his promises.
