Today's Journey...


I'd like to begin with a prayer request.

My dad, John Benton, will be having open heart surgery, Monday morning (2/13/12).   Please remember him in your prayers and add him to any prayer list you may have. 

The weather is suppose to turn nasty tomorrow night, into Monday.   I hope the roads are not too bad, as I want and need to be there with my mom, during dad's surgery.

I am so thankful I have friends like you, who I feel comfortable making such a request too.  It means more than you can know.  :)


I was going to make a tote bag today, but when my daughter asked if I wanted to go flea marketing today, I chose to do that instead.   After all, she's only going to be 15 once.  :)

Here's what I found today. 

A cookbook, the proceeds go toward mission work.
A set of cathedral window blocks.  The hard part is already done, the cutting, folding and pressing.  Two were already sewn together with the center block started.  I finished it off for this picture.  The center block pattern was in the bag also.   I plan to work on these while we wait on dad's surgery to get done.  It will be about six hours.   

I also found a pair of Americana place mats, that I plan to use either on a cedar chest, piano or hang one on the wall.   I like their look, and they will go well in my living room.

As we walked back into our house around 5pm, the smell of cinnamon rolls was in the air.  My sweetheart, baked cinnamon rolls today and they are yummy!   

My hubby is such a good man to be blessed with, and I'm not just saying that because of the cinnamon rolls.  :)



I realized this evening, I have yet to submit my block of the month.  
I will try to get that done, this next week.

Worries and fears
Overwhelm us, 
Causing tears.
When that bleak moment comes
Remember, there is One,
Who can calm the waters
And chase away the dread in our heart.
Just hand it over to the Lord, 
Feel your burden depart.
Know He is beside you day and night.
Holding you in His hands, 
Keeping you in sight.


Well, that's it for today.   I hope you are having a great weekend!

God bless and keep you,
