Love and Lollibags
I love this gray chevron, especially with the pink flower. I think that is the extent of color choices for chevron. The gray and yellow are my favorites.
I bought this vintage floral fabric in Oregon. I love it. Actually I bought it from a lady who is very dear to me. She became like a mom. She now has liver cancer and is having surgery Wednesday to remove part of her liver. Thank you for any prayers you send out, I appreciate it. Recently she gave her life to Jesus Christ, I am so grateful and amazed by God's mercy!
Today I was reading in Romans about Love.
Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good. Be devoted to one another in brotherly love. Honor one another above yourselves. Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord.
Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. Share with God's people who are in need. Practice hospitality.
Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse. Rejoice with those who rejoice; mourn with those who mourn. Live in harmony with one another. Do not be proud, but be willing to associate with people of low position. Do not be conceited.
Do not repay anyone evil for evil. Be careful to do what is right in the eyes of everyone. Do not take revenge, my friends, but leave room for God's wrath, for it is written: "It is mine to avenge; I will repay," says the Lord. On the contrary: "If your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him something to drink. In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head."
Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.
Well I have a ways to go, how about you? I'll start with being joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. And let me clarify, it won't be me, only God can do those things in me.
Enjoy the rest of May, summer is almost here!!
