about love

About love.....

This morning I was praying and God spoke to me about love....He has always loved me.
about faithfulness...He will never leave me.
about promises...He will never break His.
about holiness...He will give me His.
about sacrifice...He gave His life for mine.
about truth...He is the Truth.
about lies...He cannot.
about hope...He supplies it.
about forgiveness...He gives it completely.
about the future...He gave me one.
about the past...He forgot it.
about the fight...He's already won it.

Character is made by the Maker who by some way I cannot understand, changes mine to reflect His. The more time I spend with Him, the more I am like Him. At the same time, when I allow other things to become more important, my view of Who He Is becomes dim--shaded--under a veil. The One who can remove the veil is the One I need.

I'm thankful that He is faithful even when I'm not.

My new favorite bag pattern

So, this is a modified version of the Booga Bag. It knits quickly if you knit single color. these are both done with a self striping yarn. I am currently working on two more, one in the striping yarn and one 3 color fair isle pattern.

Getting healthy

Seriously, one of my downfalls is that I am lazy when it comes to being healthy. I used to be really athletic and sometimes I find myself stuck in what used to be instead of looking at what is and how I can change it. So, today, I logged on to my insurance website for help in managing diabetes, low back pain, cholesterol and weight. Have to log weight once a month. Maybe this will actually give me the visual motivation that I need to get back on track. I'm thinking that hiking would be good, biking would be good, walking would be good--anything other than what I'm currently doing which is nothing.

I hate laziness. I hate how it makes me feel and what it does to my life.
