> a three fold cord is not quickly broken.

Surely that depends on the material from which the cord is made?

Frazzled Farm Wife said...

Such tears of joy in my eyes for you right now!

I love the last picture!! I always think of a braid - you see the two strands but the third is not seen...but there - to hold it together!! Without the third, there woudl be no braid. I think that is such an awesome view of marriage with God being the strength behind it!

Good to see strong families bonding together. There are not many close families out in this world today. I try to keep my family closely bonded. We have a family night every Monday night where I cook a big meal and they all come home to eat. I started that after my first daughter got married. Now both daughters are married and out on their own. Monday nights are very special to me.

Dear Susan!

I hope you are doing fine. Thank you so much for your latest comment on my stockings. Please Susan, don't stop coming to my garden! You are always more than welcome and you always light up my day with your warm and very very nice comments!

Unfortunately, I do not have time to visit your site as often as I would like to these days.

I had a day off today and had a wonderful afternoon: I attended as sewing workshop and came home with a very great new project (out of my Tilda book)! Pictures will soon follow on my blog!

My next posts will be about more verse tiles and my November garden.

Have a blessed day!

Yours,
Anita
