If you haven't done a cow you are missing out! Easy and fun and so many cow ideas stemming from the words "beef, cow, moo, bovine, calf. dairy, veal etc."
Just think of the theme and make the cow and joila! Brillant quilt!
The pattern is in the "Out of the Box with Easy Blocks Book. By Mel McFarland and myself.
Someone who shares something with you, a stranger who holds the door or says something nice, or smiles. A parking place that is a good one. There are so many many things we take forgranted and don't ever thank God for but we will gripe about what we need or want or what is wrong with such and such or so and so. Poor God....seriously, to be talked to all day long wanting things...and shallow things...things we don't need. Thankfully He gives us what He does for our own good.
God says "My ways are not your ways." I am so relieved when I read this because I know I cannot even try to think of God's ways and you look at the HUGE sky and think "He created all of this" and then you think "why would anyone think they can speak for God and think they know who will make it to heaven and who won't ." It is wonderful that God is the judge and not us. Another thing I am thankful for.
My prayer this week is that my husband will not suffer, that I can pray and help others through my prayers, that I can enjoy my cousin who is here from Mozambique, that my husband will be safe and happy while I am gone teaching. He has many family members who want to take him to his appointments and I pray he is happy and not afraid.
And I am praying that you will be blessed this week and if you live in the US that you will be thankful for our soldiers of many generations who made sure we can celebrate and be happy. We are blessed and the Bible says that God blesses YOU to be a blessing!
So have a wonderful week won't you? and bless others along the way.
LOVE to you, Mary Lou
