Season’s greetings, Everyone!

Ohhh boy… the WP snowfall has begun, Thanksgiving on both sides of the 49th parallel are done and it’sΒ less than a month ’til Christmas! My thankful heart better kick into gear or today’s “Thankful Thursday” post will be late, too…

The past few years have been rough. Yet through it all, we’ve trusted God (and by “God” I’m talking about Jesus) to provide for our needs. Personal plans are always falling short. But today, I’m especially thankful for His revival of my ol’ iMac… Yup, back again after about 10 days of dead silence in the wake of my 200th blog post… phewww!!!

I think God allows troubles because in His omniscient wisdom He knows troubles lead to thinkingβ€”and thinking leads to thanking ❀ For instance, I’m thinking my ol’ iMac can’t last much longer. The internal HD is shot (sighhh… lost tons of summer photos, ‘though that’s my own fault for not saving them before the crash), so it’s hooked up to run (more slowly) via an old external HD form of life support :-/ Still, all this thinking lifts my heavy heartfelt thoughts in thanksgiving toward Heaven for The Lord’s faithful provisionβ€”gotta ❀ how that works!

Beyond thankful, actually, for this umpteenth chance at renewed focus on my original knitting goal! That goal is to prepare as many proper layouts as possible for the many half-prepped designs God has heartily inspired me to write. SO many half-done prototypes, but it’ll sure feel good to finally format them into PDFs for SALE! Lord willing, I’ll finish the task … before… y’know… silence strikes again!

Yay… one pattern up for sale!
Slowly yet surely, stitch by stitch and step-by-step πŸ™‚ ❀

How big is this problem on a scale of one to God?

  1. What a lovely post – all the very best for the renewed focus on finishing some of the projects you’ve started (it’s so easy to get side-tracked or lose focus, so don’t be too hard on yourself!) Caz x

  5. Enjoying your WP snowfall as I am unlikely to see any where I live in Mexico. It is not the beach and we do have cold temps at night, but you would laugh at what I am calling cold. Looking forward to seeing your new products if God wills it. Meanwhile knit away and dream of new projects.

    • Thanks for your encouragement, Linda ❀ Now dreaming of what you call cold πŸ˜‰ Our actual snow's been here for over a month. Sometimes ferocious windchills, but mild this week with mild daytime highs rising above freezing. So that's good knitting weather, anyway! πŸ™‚ πŸ’œ Jackie@KWH
