Happy New Years

No real resolutions this year although our Pastor has challenged us all to read the entire Bible this year. I had started countless times like many others in Genesis and soon lost steam in some of the difficult old testament. I did complete it once using a 365 day version that gave some old and new each day. GP is going to try the chronological version and I may get the one minute bible to try. How can you not have one minute to learn more about God?

We drove the Studebaker to church but it quit in the driveway on the way home. It still needs lots of TLC to get it back to dependable but we will get it there eventually.

And finally I was moved this morning to make my first prayer quilt. A college student in our church just had yet another surgery to remove a cancerous tumor from her abdomen. Her third December in a row. She faces more chemo and another semester lost. I have some Appalachian fabric that I was hoping to use for Go Postal but we agreed she needs it more. Just in time we are off to Camp Dogwood next weekend for a retreat.

Happy New Year, I love the photo of GP and the Studebaker... he looks like he's taking it all in stride. That prayer quilt will mean more than you'll ever know!

Wonderful & uplifting post, thanks! Love the car! One might want to co-ordinate Their outfit to match!
One of the best things I ever did for myself is to read the Bible all the way through. I read one of the chronologically ordered ones.... I think it helped so much as it is easier to get "the story.". Good luck! B
