I started working on this Penny Rug. I have owned
the pattern for years, but I am finally getting around
to working on it. I thought I would be finished working on
it by today, but I will show you what I have been
Miles and miles of swimming pool fence. There
are 42 metal fence pipes in each section of
fence panel. Each one is rusted so first we (my
husband and I) Lacquer Thinner and steel wool,
and scrub off the rust and then wipe it down and
then paint it with oil based paint. This part looks
pretty, the rusty part does not. This will be our
project for the next few weekends. Just before we
do the eves on the outside of the house. I have
lots of painting projects lined up. I am out of
school this Thursday, so I take of teacher hat
and put on handy Mom hat.
Changing gears, I have thought so much about
waiting on God and not running ahead. Every thing
I have been listening to and reading has this one thread
running though it.
Like this: " I think perhaps the hardest lesson of faith is
learning to wait. We always want to do something,
and sometimes God says, "Don't do anything,
Be still, Listen to me."
"Those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength."
"The Lord himself goes before you, and will be with you,
he will never leave you nor forsake you.
Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged."
Today as I look around at all that I need to get done
and the people who are on my prayer list, most of
them are in a waiting room of some kind. Today,
I will wait and be still, and know that He is never
late. I know too, I am always in a hurry.
I hope you have a great Monday.
