To Do Or Not To Do

Over a year ago I had a quilt all done except the binding. I need to find some more binding and finish that quilt. As some people know I’ve had a Wix site for several previous years. Here is a link to my quilt project in case anyone would like to view that.

Besides the quilt, I’ve been thinking about watching and following a Bob Ross painting video. I believe have everything I need to do the job it just needs set up. I haven’t really painted much and when I first began painting Bob Ross was probably in Alaska just learning to paint as well. My children used to watch his show every Saturday afternoon. It’s just fascinating how he takes a flat surface and turns it into a work of art. Not to mention his wonderful personality, and Peapod the Pocket Squirrel.

I’ve wanted to call my Merle Norman store and find out if they can mail an order to me. They have done that in the past. And perhaps contact a piano tuner to work on tuning and repairing our piano. I do have a list of things besides working to get my book published by June first. It’s count down time for that as well.


This morning after Worship Services were over several of the children were outside playing. Suddenly, our youngest granddaughter is heard wailing, and as the old-timers called it ‘pitching a fit’. I looked at my daughter and I said, “I don’t know where she got her temper, I still have all of mine.”

Of course, we laughed…people with tempers can be legendary. Not that I would claim legendary status, but a temper can make a person look courageous or more often than not, look like an idiot. My daughter went through the fit scene with her oldest child in the early years, and asked me, “Mom, do you think we ever look like that to God?” “Yes, I do, child,” I said with a smile.

That’s when my sister’s words come back to me. ‘I remember my mother, and I come down off of my high horse real fast.’ Children are a link to the past and the future. They are also a glimpse from us as child into the mind of God.

(Genesis 44:33)  “Now therefore, I pray thee, let thy servant abide instead of the lad a bondman to my lord; and let the lad go up with his brethren.
(Gen 44:34)  For how shall I go up to my father, and the lad be not with me? lest peradventure I see the evil that shall come on my father.”
