Finally, a minute

It seems I hardly have time to sit down and really think about my day. I'm trying to finish a Dale baby sweater for a friend of mine, but I'm down to seams and I have to gear up for that. I also want to start a little Dale dress out of yellow Stork with pink trim. I may give in to starting that and finish the other a little bit at a time.

The RNC is all over the news. It amazes me that the Republicans were not nearly as disruptive to the DNC or Boston and yet they are considered a hateful party. What ever happened to respectful dialogue? I'm really becoming quite tired of all of it!

So much I want to say

I've been thinking about this blog for quite awhile. I have so much I want to say regarding faith, life, politics, the media-it could go on and on.

I guess the easiest thing is to start with what I've been dealing with lately.

I had a mammogram. Routine. Makes me nervous. We live in a world that seems gripped by fear at every turn. We're afraid to speak up for what we believe in. We're afraid of what we eat, afraid of what we don't eat, afraid of disease, afraid of terrorists, afraid of politians, on and on and on. It's crazy. So now, I wait. I'm trying not to be fearful or anxious, my faith and my belief in the Lord tells me not to be. I know that I am not productive when I'm afraid. So, I'll write, I'll knit, I'll function. I have nothing to fear and I'm tired of everyone telling me to be afraid. My God is good and He can be trusted!

Giving this a whirl

I'm giving this a whirl. I've been thinking about it for several days. It seems that several folks on KR have one and I think that it could be a theraputic thing to do. I want to write about life, faith, politics, knitting, crafts, whatever comes into this little ole mind of mine.

I hope that it's a productive thing and will make me somewhat accountable for my projects, etc.
