Proverbs 3:7&8 says, "Do not be wise in your own eyes; fear the Lord and shun evil. This will bring health to your body and nourishment to your bones."
I love Proverbs! It is so full of wisdom and it comes in the form of short and to the point. Some of them make me chuckle, yet they are truth. Love this one: Proverbs 21:9 "Better to live on the corner of the roof than share a house with a quarrelsome woman."

I found a quilt pattern in a library book that might be one I'd like to try. Maybe it'd make a better wall hanging.....I better finish the one I started first. Sometimes there are way too many ideas running around in my head.

My friend, Jody, gifted me with a rug she made from her daughter Grace's skirts. I can't bear to actually let dirty feet stomp on it (and the feet around here can be pretty disgusting), so I am using it to sit upon when I do buttons. I'll think about sitting surrounded by God's grace. Thanks Jody!

My friend, Loretta, is a good cook. She was a farm wife who cooked for a lot of people. She found a Co. on the net called Morris Press that prints cookbooks with your recipes. I was excited to get my copy this week. I made one of the recipes for buns and made a double batch so I tried cloverleaf rolls and cinnamon rolls and regular buns. They were delicious. I'm excited to try new recipes because there are a lot of "out-of-the-ordinary" ones and I have grown very weary of making the same old things over and over. The cookbooks were beautiful and very reasonable. I'm sure it was a lot of work for her to submit all the recipes, but I'm glad she did it!
