HAPPY MOTHERS DAY!!

 Happy Mother's Day!!
I trust all you Moms had a great day.  
Today was a beautiful day with sunny skies.  

I was surprised this morning when my two, Josh and Audre, gave me a Comparative Study Bible.  It has four translations, the King James, New International, New American Standard and the Amplified versions.  I saw this Bible at Books A Million the other day and thought it would be cool to have one.   I didn't know they were being sneaky and buying it while we were in the store.  This will help with my studies, instead of having three or four different Bibles sitting around me I can now have them in one book.  


I was surprised at church this morning too.   

A cute little kid drew my name for the Mother's Day giveaway and I got a beautiful ground cover rose.  It is loaded down with buds.  One branch broke off, so I have it in water.  Hopefully it will root and then I can plant it too.  David is going to plant the rose bush for me tomorrow. 





This afternoon we had an enjoyable visit with my Mom-n-law, Audrene.  I made her a set of coasters in the light tan color, speckled with green, maroon and brown.   Then we went to my parents house.  I made my Mom, Linda, a coaster set in the burgundy color.   At my parents house, my little nephew, Lucan, kept us in laughter.  He will be two next month and is discovering everything.

Yesterday
 

Yesterday I began reading One in a Million by Priscilla Shirer.   I read one chapter then stopped.  I realized I needed a book mark, so I took up some thread and a crochet needle and made one.

Changes

I have changed up my tabs at the top.   I only have four tabs now.  
  1. Home
  2. Give Aways
  3. Patterns
  4. Something New
Home of course is the main page where all my blogs are viewable.  Give Aways is where I will continue to post giveaways from my blogger friends and any that I may have.  Patterns will be where I post any quilt or crochet patterns and Something New is where I will be posting blogs for others to promote their website or blog.

I will mention the updates and changes to the pages as needed.

In Closing

May God bless you,
On this day.
The lessons you gave,
Helped light my way.
Ever grateful for all you do,
Respect and love, I have for you.
