Pastor Hagee talks about something that happened to him that NOBODY but his family knew about. Jerry and I watched his sermons all through the time he referred back to, and we KNEW something was wrong, but we had NO IDEA how severe and terrifying an ordeal he was going through.
God truly is our ANCHOR OF HOPE! I don't know how people who have convinced themselves there is no God can even get out of bed in the morning. Where does their hope come from? There isn't any place. That is why most of the whole world is on anti-depressants. It is so sad that a person born and living in America can't get through one day without some kind of drug because they are so depressed. And SADDER THAN THAT, the drugs just make it worse!
How can you hear the voice of God speaking to you? How can you hear the counsel of the great and mighty Holy Counselor, the Holy Spirit, when your brain is drugged? It is no small thing. The Bible says wisdom comes FROM GOD. If we can't HEAR God, how can we receive wisdom?
Maybe there are SOME cases where a person really needs that stuff, but certainly not the millions that are on it. Even the children! Children need parenting, discipline, love and good nutrition.
I'll get off that soap box. Just sayin'.
And God is SO GOOD! I have a loved one in my family that has made some majorly bad choices and has gotten into a place of depression and heartache that seems insurmountable. Another is going through a broken heart and trying to save his marriage. These two loved ones just happened to be together this morning, and after asking me for instructions, they sat together and watched Pastor Hagee preach Anchor of Hope. They were many miles away from here, but I was certainly with them in Spirit. God has promised He will NEVER leave them or forsake them. It is my only comfort. No drug on Earth can fix what those two are going through right now.
And let me say again -- in case you don't read my blog much and you are in shock over my statements -- that this is MY blog and everything here is MY opinion
If you don't agree or you don't like it or you think I'm insane and need a good Shrink, YOU ARE NOT ALONE!
It doesn't take a Rocket Scientist to figure out that I am a Square Peg in a Round Hole. The Bible even says, "We are IN this Earth, but NOT OF IT."
I guess that would make me a Square Peg on a Round Ball!
this square peg has two new blouses.
This is the Cutting Line Designs SNAP TO IT pattern by Louise Cutting.
I think both the "muslin" and the final turned out good. It is a really full style for me, but I am liking it.
I started the "muslin" using the blue butterflies that Margaret liked so much. I put the long sleeve that is in the pattern on this one even though I usually am not a fan of long sleeves.
Here is the "muslin" which is FOR SURE, a wearable top.
Notice that with Rhonda's permission, I used FIVE buttons instead of three. Worked just fine!
This top has ties inside to hold the inside left front to the inside right front. Strange, but it seems to work. Also, you can see that -- AS ALWAYS -- I have pulled the long sleeves up to be 3/4. Should have made them that way to start with.
And here is the second top. I actually think the first one looks better on me, but I will wear them both. I put SHORT sleeves on this top even though the pattern only came with a long sleeve. Turns out you can just chop that sucker off! Those are the Burda pants I made last week.
Here, I noticed that another pair of Size 12 Macy Jeans SORT OF matched the new top. I could only find the ONE FLOWER circled in pink that actually matched it though, so I will stick with the other pants.
Gotta go. Been sitting in this chair too long. Jerry is fishing to make sure his boat repairs are holding up. He tried to take Doug (Terry's husband) fishing a few weeks ago, and the boat DIED on the water.
I just called him, and he said everything was working great. I am SO, SO, SO HAPPY when Jerry takes a day off and does something he enjoys.
And here they are side-by-side. It appears I'm into five buttons no matter how many of these I make.
I wonder if Louise would like to see these. Maybe I'll try to post them on her website. NO! I'll post them at Stitcher's Guild. She will see them there.
Be back soon.
