Love You Mom! β˜•οΈπŸŽΆπŸ’œ

 

Happy (belated) Mother’s Day!

Perhaps a bit late according to the calendar date… but since when is it too late to share a cuppa love with mom?!?

Be it Mother’s Day, birthdays, holidays or everyday… a sip from this particular mug shall surely hit the spot any day!

You may have noticed that the hearts are arranged to spell “MOM” … awwwe πŸ₯° The drawing video below was my creative inspiration there.

If we were having coffee…
I’d tell you Jesus saves!
… because Christ conquered death at the Cross,
and He’s the only way our sin debt can be repaid!

If we were having coffee…
I’d tell you that I’m saved!
… because I’ve surrendered and been reborn to Him,
spiritually remade in exchange for His merciful grace!Β 

If we were having coffee…
I’d tell you of your need to be saved!
… because only faith through the Lamb’s shed blood,
has power to change hearts and wash our sins away!

If we were having coffee…

and our Blessed Hope of eternity with Him is
forevermore in the Light of His glorious

the 11th hour… πŸŽƒπŸŽ­πŸ‘ΊπŸ”₯β˜’πŸ”‘β˜ 

October 31st

Benjamin Cho Fall 2007 Collection

Okay, so it’s past the stroke of October… sighhh… I’ve missed the calendar mark, again. But life’s battles continue and I’m determined (come Hell or high water) to post this mixed bag o’ treats via WordPress, YouTube and facebook!Β 

Let’s begin with Pete’s pOwerful post @Β Revelation310 “Rage Against the Machine” … Oh wOw… Have you noticed how the entire world’s been spinning freakishly out of control? Here in Canada, useless Soros puppeticians bent on destroying Canada took the helm 3 yrs ago. Yup, way back when life still seemed “normal” :-/ Hope to change that in the 2019 election?!? Well anyhoo… Pete’s article makes Biblically soundΒ sense to me. Do you agree?Β 

Please also enjoy the bountiful harvest of posts from my blog’s fb page. Hopefully something for everyone, including stylishly crafty foodish fun andΒ Nepal’s scariest waterfall highway!Β 

One Hundred Percent” @ Narrow is The Way Ministries and Pastor Charles Lawson’s sermon (below) are about the afterlife… Hell is a real place and my heart’s intent is to scare the Hell out of you so that you don’t end up there! ❀ 

Coming up next time, I’ll finally fill you in on the project that’s been my focus apart from the blog. And of course, more of that wild ‘n wacky weather of ours πŸ˜‰Β 

Well okay… here’s a link forΒ 
my “top secret” project

James 1:2-3 β€” Consider it pure joy, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance.

Romans 8:28 β€” "And we know that in all things GOD works for the good of those who love Him... who have been called according to His purpose"

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?

Hoping you’ll all visit Mary Ann’s “Pennies for Dreams” blog post about the Peace Diamond. The story is a glimmer of sparkling hope for humanity! It seemed too good to be true, so I googled it… Yup, sure enough!

It’s the true story of evangelical Pastor Emmanuel Momoh’s honourably patriotic generosity, plus the honourable transparency of Sierra Leone’s President Dr. Ernest Bai Koroma… Wow! … Talk about a national treasure πŸ™‚ God bless them as they continue to let their light shine amidst this greedy ol’ world’s gold-digging dark side! ❀ Jackie

unravelling the sound of silence πŸ’œ

Hello Friends… I’m still here πŸ™‹πŸ’œπŸ˜ β€˜though feeling a bit sheepish after all these unplanned months in silence 😜 Spent the summer seeking peaceful moments, whilst traversing stressful detours under increasingly disturbed concern for the Trudeau governments blatant disregard for Canadian democracy! Sadly, this was also the final summer for 4 WordPress bloggers (that I’m aware of) who fell forever silent 😦 It’s a strange feeling to realize people you’ve interacted with online, yet never met in person, are no longer with us 😦 So… ‘guess my blogful β€œoomph” took a hike. Or was it out flying an inspirational kite?!? Whatever the case, I’ve tried many times but couldn’t get it “write” :-/

Yeah, that’s it… silently flying an inspirational kite atop the plethora of unfinished projects piled high around the unravelling heap of my knotted entanglement πŸ˜‰ Switching to stitching always helps. But for all life’s ups and downs, my heart is sure glad to have Jesus ❀

Simon & Garfunkel’s thought provoking song about the sound of silence (composed by Paul Simon, 1964) seems a rather timely tune for today. Wouldn’t you say? But can silence have a sound when by definition it is soundless?!? Hmmm, quite the paradox!Β Well anyway…

Here are a few videos, plus my attempt to spin a lyrical rhyme reflecting the sounds planted within my own particular brain… Perhaps you’ve also been hearing the sounds of silence and listening for God Almighty’s still small voice, while trusting in Jesus as the sole Truth for souls amidst the turmoil of worldly noise and confusion? βœπŸ™πŸ’œ Feel free to break the silence!

"The Sound of Silence" lyrics by Paul Simon, plus my own version.

#64 πŸ’œ tangled heartstrings, yet… “Even If” by MercyMe

Daniel 3:18 β€” "even if He does not"

Daniel 3:18
“But even if he does not, we want you to know, Your Majesty, that we will not serve your gods or worship the image of gold you have set up.”

Hello & Welcome to my 64th episode of the KWH iPad Show! Today’s feature is a bit of a tangled mess ❀

Over a month since my last blog update, but I’m still here! Can we blame it on the crazy messed-up world we’re living in?!? Hope you’re well and hangin’ in there! Hope you’re not feeling strung-up and stressed-out like this endearing sheep of yarnful entanglement. Or like me… Yeah, feels like I’ve been hangin’ with this sheep a lot lately :-/ Click the screenshot image to find this woolerful print for sale on Etsy πŸ™‚Β I figured it’s a fitting illustration of how I’ve been feeling πŸ˜‰Β 

“Even If” by MercyMe is the song my heart’s been singing and syncing, more deeply by the day ❀ What a comfort to knowΒ Jesus loves us and is fully able/willing to move life’s tangled mountains! But even if His provision differs from our preferred outcome,Β we know He will always love and take care of us.

He’s been faithful and good all of my days… I have faith in Him for what He’s already done… Come what may, my soul shall cling to Christ alone ❀

In today’s reblogged post, Tanya Cliff uses her own hand-knit samples to demonstrate a writer’s words as being strung together like rows or rounds of basic to complex knit stitches. She also quotes a Bible verse about the original knitter of the entire universeβ€”who is God the Creator of all things!Β And that’s a great analogy worth sharing, I’d say πŸ™‚

Adding to that…

This “life” fabric we’re writing will indeed formulate into many vibrantly patterned stitches/genres. Some stitches may “felt” dull. Others lacking in recommended tension will inevitably stretch out of shape. Unintentionally slipped stitches may cause entire WIPs (works in progress) to unravel prior to being properly cast off… And it could all spell trouble :-/ Try as we might to write right, I’m glad there’s one master editorβ€”our heavenly Father… the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob,Β who knew us before time began and knit us together in our mother’s womb πŸ™‚ He is faithful and just to freely edit all errors for anyone who asks… And it’s by His pen that our names are written in the Book of Life ❀

So let’s trust Him and be patient with one another…
because God is not finished editing us yet! β™₯ Jackie

Knitting a row of stitches at its most basic is like stringing simple words along the page to form a sentence. The dog runs. It gets boring quickly. The motivated knitter learns how to successfully…
