epiphany

today is the 12th day of christmas. after 6 wks of christmas, i am kinda glad to see the season end.
this has been an emotional few weeks. our daughter is doing fabulously health wise. our friend's 17 yr old found a cancer recurrence on christmas day. she was just getting ready for college after the last bought delayed that dream.
other friends are dealing with a very wide spread breast cancer and just "waiting it out" now, pray for her children. sylvia loved so many little ones. she has blessed our lives by loving our babies.
peggy died unexpectedly new year's eve. her funeral was today. she was an awesome woman! went to buy cards and cried in the bookstore. good thing i know the owners and they didnt think i was a tweaker.
thursday sam still hung out with the teens while things are in transition. then friday we had to pull lawn chairs in for services, it was so packed. i get all twitter patted listening to him preach. :-) he is so wonderful.
i am getting my notes all prepared for the women's event i am speaking at. do you think i can work knitting into it? betcha i can. :-)
tali is talking in semi sentences. the girls are all giggly and have a new giggly friend. the boys are becoming boys not just kids, boys. annoying, burping, growing too fast out of their clothes, wearing holes in their shoes, boys. and when did they get so good at jokes? they crack me up!
my hair is greying. i'm not planning on colouring it. but suddenly there is alot of it!
i owe alot of pictures.
my pal asked about my menorah. i have 8??? i think. so i am gonna try to get them all in a group shot for you. sam's silk kippah turned out so nice. now if only i could find more of it in less girlie colours.
my dad's sweater is still on the needles. i designed a cable sock pattern. trying to graph the chart. my dad found a knitting font so it may help.
tali's sherwood sweater stalled affter 2" and i need to get it going again. actually i have way to many WIPs.
i thought i found my bible verse for the year, but when i looked it up..it was sooo not the verse i had read. i lost it, and need to find it again. mom has hers down. it is a new years tradition. any one have a favourite verse to share? have you found a promise you are holding tight to for the coming year? please share!

Hi, I came here by way of the SP9 web site and Roni's flist too.

Psalm 46:10 is my "don't worry" mantra - Be still and know that I AM God. It always seems I have lots I think I need to worry about or try to rush God about ... but I need to just be still and let him do his work, and listen for what he wants me to do, not the other way around.

Hope you have a blessed 2007!

Cate

Well, Cate and I have the same thought - with my resolutions for the year Ps. 46:10 "Be still and know that I am God..." is one that I am clinging to and Jeremiah 29:11 "For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." These 2 verses are on my mind and in my prayers daily. They help me realize who is in control.

I am liking Mark 12:41-44. And Jesus sat over the treasury, and beheld how the people cast mon ey into the treasury; and many that were rich cast in much
here comes my fav part)42 And there came a certain poor widow, and she threw in two mites, which make a farthing.
43 And he called unto him his descipces and said unto them, Veriy I say unto you, that this poor widow hath cast more in than all they wich have cast into the trerasurer:
44 For all they did cast in of their abundance; but she of her want did cast in all that she had, even all her living."

It reminds me to be more giving (not just in a financial way, but a spiritual way too. Ask me about my Mark 12:41 bracelette next time you see me.

My favorite verse is actually a song that I not only sing in church (I was in the church choir for a number of years)but is one that I sing every day . . . the text is based on 2Samuel 22 "Song of Thanksgiving" which Samuel sang to the Lord . . . the refrain for my church's version is "The Lord is my hope and glory. The Lord is the song that I sing; so tender and loving a shepherd, so rooted in justice, a king. When shadow confuses my vision, when sorrow lays claim to my heart, God is my refuge, my rock and my shield. I will rely on the Lord." These words have given me strength through some really hard times and I pray that it will help others cope also.
