After yesterday's terribly hormonal day, I'm feeling a bit more normal, at least I feel like I can accomplish a few things.  I've got my baby sweater blocking, figured out the heel for J's socks, got the laundry going, and am looking forward to lunch with two of my favorite girls!

One of the most wonderful things that happened this fall was the wedding of my dear friend M to her God-given blessing of a husband, B.  M was the one who's husband committed suicide about 2 years ago.  B is truly heaven-sent!  He is one of the most compassionate men I've ever met.  He's head-over-heels in love with her, wants to be a godly husband and guide and lead their family.  The boys love him!  I'm so excited to watch and see what God does in their life together!

What a blessing these two ladies are to me!

At least I made it to blogger today and added a couple of books I've completed (only currently reading about 20 more, from The Hobbit to several more theology books) and changed up my color.  The past few months have been such a whirlwind of activity, things are just starting to slow down and now I face a mountain of things I want to get finished.  Baby items to knit for our newest grandbaby, due in just a few weeks, a Christmas stocking for a friend, finish sewing up my nativity scene that I knit, a shawl, more baby items for several that are due after the first of the year.  It overwhelms me to just think about it.

On top of all that, I'm so enjoying all that I've been studying and learning.  I've switched Bible versions to the NASB (our new pastor uses that and I really like it). The only one I had around the house was the New Inductive Study Bible (Precepts Ministries) that I bought years ago at a Kay Arthur event.  I'm finally using it the way it was meant to be used and am enjoying looking for key words.  I'm amazed every day with what Abba has been showing me in His Word.

I'm hoping in the next few days that I'll be able to get back to blogging on a regular basis.  Until then, Shalom!
