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.

Believe.

Thank you for praying for me! Thank you for encouraging me so much through this cancer treatment. I have the best blog friends in the world! Yes! You!

I read all your comments and respond as I can right now.
Please make sure I have your email if you want me to respond or pray for you. For some reason Blogger isn't notifying me of comments right now, so I may be a bit slower.

God bless you all! This life only works with Jesus. The next life is a continuation of this one—make sure you spend it with Jesus. Jesus is the only way to God the Father!
