Yarn Along...Still

...knitting my first pair of "real" socks...
and reading Story of the World II by Susan Wise Bauer.

Joy of joys.  We read about Ghengis Khan, his grandson, Kublai Khan, and their Mongol hordes this morning.  I think those guys could have benefited from a hot bath, a good book, and a good hobby...maybe knitting?  I can smile now; but, those guys killed their way from the China coast to the Islamic lands.  You joined them or were killed.  Not much of a choice.  I asked my kids if they thought they'd be strong enough to stand if it were Christians that were being killed.  They didn't know.  I don't think I would be strong enough.  But I know that Christ in me would be.  Thank God that we don't have to live or die in our own power. 
Holy Spirit power is available to all those who believe on the Name of Jesus Christ and are saved.



Join the other ladies at this week's Yarn Along with Gigi.


  1. I love the socks that you're making, Laura! They look very nice and you're doing a good job with them. I also loved your posting about the Khans and Mongols...especially the part about the knitting! Cute! Have a wonderful evening!


  2. Socks are definitely on my list of to do projects. Yours look lovely.

  3. beautiful socks, I love the self patterning yarns, you never know what you'll get ;-)


Hello! I love it when you all talk back!
Your comments have helped me through the hardest time of my life.
Thank you!

I read all the comments I receive. I answer as many as I can.

Right now, I am undergoing radiation treatments, healing from breast cancer surgery on October 20th, and dealing with the side effects of chemotherapy.

I'm having a hard time replying to all the comments. Please understand if I do not answer. This is all new to me.

I treasure your prayers and your comments.

If you have a question, or you need a response, be sure I can reach you by email or subscribe to the comments. I will try to answer each question and request. It just may take me some time.

Be blessed!
