I blinked and . . .

I don't know where the time goes. The weekend flew by. Sunday was an amazing day of rest and just relaxtion. And I played in the sewing room. I got some new shelving last week and I worked most of the day washing and refolding fabric and getting it onto new shelves.
And wheather was so nice I had to work outside. Had some gates to move and rehang to section off parts to keep the horses off the pasture to let it green up some.
Cowboy is still recuperating from knee surgery so we didn't get to go to church yesterday. We did go the night before to service at a friends church. It was totally different than ours. The message was great. The music was great but not really my style. Anyway so at least we did get some worship and learning in if not on Sunday.
About the knee surgery. Recuperation is very slow. Sitting for any length of time. Or standing any length of time causes extreme swelling and pain. Any 1 hour outing takes 4-5 hours for him to recuperate. Last night was a really bad night for him because he walked outside for all of 30 minutes to help me. He helped me get two gates back up. And then spent the rest of the day and night with ice on his knee.
Anyway enough about that. That is where I was and what I was doing and not putting up a post. I do want to add a verse to memorize this week but once again I over committed myself last week. The Deuteronomy verse was too much well maybe not but I got bogged down toward the end of the week so I am repeating it this week.
Here it is partly from memory:
Deuteronomy 6:5-9
Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul and with all your strength.
These commands that I give you today are to be upon your heart.
Impress them on your children.Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk
along the road when you lie down and when you get up.
Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads.
Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates.

So this week I am starting again on this set of verses. I got the first 3 but got bogged down toward the end of the week. I think I am going to have to get on a schedule. I work so much better with one. Especially since it is getting so much warmer outside. I spend much more time out there.

And I also spend a lot of time reading blogs and writing posts. And taking pictures. Although they aren't very good. But I am learning my way around photo shop and I made a change to Friday's Show and Tell post. Nothing huge I just cropped one of the photo's of the quilts. Here it is but go back over and check it out. I finally figured out how to crop. Yea. On my Saturday's post at the very end is a photo of my rabbit I put a frame around it. I like the way it looks.

I hope that although today I just wrote about what I have been up to that someone is Blessed by this blog. It is my desire to share God with you. I am praying for you.
