Well, it is now September 1st and I am posting my last 3 letters for ALPABET in AUGUST on Cliot's Run. I tried hard to finish in August, but didn't quite make it !!!! This has been a good "exercise" for me and hopefully gotten me back into posting on a more consistent basis.....we'll see!!
XMAS - It was very difficult for me to even type that!!!! I dislike seeing Christmas written like that and I do not do it. To me it is disrespectful of the most precious and important thing in my life - Christ - and the relationship I have with Him and all He means to me.
YARN - Represents the 9 prayer shawls I have made so far.
The one I gave to our daughter, Suzette, on September 28th last year, the day she was diagnosed with stage IV lung cancer.
The last one I made for my dear blog friend, Kathy, when she, Danny, Bethany & Daniel visited us in July.
I have small amounts of yarn left in 7 colors and I plan for my next prayer shawl to be made out of them as a Joseph's Coat of Many Colors. I just haven't had the heart to get back to making another yet, but hope to as fall and cooler weather arrives.
ZEAL - Eagerness, enthusiasm, ardor and zeal!!! I love that, don't you? I believe that is the way we are to live our lives and the way I endeavor to live mine each and every day. Reminds me of one of my many favorite Bible verses:
Ecclesiastes 9:10 – “Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do with thy might; for there is nowork, nor device, nor knowledge, nor wisdom, in the grave, whither thou goest.”
I have endeavored to participate in ALPHABET in AUGUST with ZEAL and it has been a good exercise for me in
