If we were having coffeeโ€ฆ
Iโ€™d tell you Jesus saves!
… because Christ conquered death at the Cross,
and Heโ€™s the only way our sin debt can be repaid!

If we were having coffeeโ€ฆ
Iโ€™d tell you that Iโ€™m saved!
โ€ฆ because Iโ€™ve surrendered and been reborn to Him,
spiritually remade in exchange for His merciful grace!ย 

If we were having coffeeโ€ฆ
Iโ€™d tell you of your need to be saved!
โ€ฆ because only faith through the Lambโ€™s shed blood,
has power to change hearts and wash our sins away!

If we were having coffeeโ€ฆ
Iโ€™d rejoice to know youโ€™re saved!
โ€ฆ because new life in Christ is just the beginning,
and our Blessed Hope of eternity with Him is
forevermore in the Light of His glorious
ย grace!

All too quiet on the blogful front :-/
‘though always busy with lots to say.
Lately, all I wanna do is sit ‘n knit,
study the King James Bible and pray…
’cause day by day,ย 
this ol’ world is
spinningย and falling away ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

But today is Resurrection Sunday โค
and by the grace of Christ’s blood,
ALL who trust in Jesus will be okay!
’cause it’s ALL about Jesus…
He is the Life, Truth and only Way.

Hoping you’ll choose to trust Jesus
with all your heart and soul, today!

‘Twas knit-erally a year later… Christmas 2016 staircase decor just in time for Christmas 2017 ๐ŸŽ„๐ŸŽถ๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ๐Ÿ˜

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

how to make a heartfelted Brambleโคtini loop ornament ||| Knitting With HeartWell it’s beginning to look a lot like last year’s Christmas, now that my fibrously festive decor pics are finally packaged into a presentable post… HA! Why does time always fly so fast?!?

Anyhoo… holding an iPad completely still for stills can be a bit of a challenge. So in today’s photo gallery, I’ve included one especially blurred shot to emphasizes the crAZy of my logic to share Christmas photos a year late …LoL… But OhhhHo boy… really gotta get cracking on THIS year’s decorating! Family’s coming to visit from Manitoba and it’s gonna be extra fun… ‘though may need a Christmas miracle to get it all done!ย 

‘Twas last Christmas when my nimble knitting fingers stitched the first fleecy prototype for my upcoming “It’s ALL about Jesus” mosaic knitting pattern design. I’d hoped to have it published by now, but these things take time. For now, I’m extremely thankful to have my ol’ iMac back and slowly-yet-surely moving forward with pattern layout preparations! Currently stitching my 4th sampleโ€”see lovely group shot of em’ all laid flat on a striped bath towel “blocking mat” ๐Ÿ˜‰ย 

Do you believe Christmas (and life in general) is all about Jesus? It truly warms my heart and soothes my soul to knit such comforting words โค

Feel free to click the following photos and climb my stairway decor from Christmas past… 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016… Hope you’ll also enjoy the fireside Christmas music video and/or meaningful message from one of my favourite preachers,ย  Pastor Charles Lawson ๐Ÿ™‚

my thankful heart ๐Ÿ’œ

James 1:2-3
Journeys in Grace pic โ€” "Let the music of your heart create a joyful noise unto the Lord.

Click image to view original link.

James 1:2-3 โ€” 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 โ€” "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’sย 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 thinkingโ€”and thinking leads to thanking โค 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 provisionโ€”gotta โค 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 ๐Ÿ™‚ โค

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

colourful sheep

Hello & Welcome to my 62nd episode of the KWH iPad Show! Today’s feature is Easter โค

Yup… a bit late :-/

In my defense, there’s been a major distraction… An overwhelmingly welcome distraction, which I’ll soon be blogging about!!! ๐Ÿ˜€ย 

For now, this Easter post is running “late” (according to the calendar date) and I need to hop to it ๐Ÿ˜‰ Always better a bit late than never at all, right?!? …hmmm…

Please enjoy the show, including christian comedian Tim Hawkins’ version of the classic AMAZING GRACE hymnย with a twist of classic EAGLES band โค

Hello & Welcome to my 43rdย episode ofย the KWH iPad Show! Todayโ€™s feature is Easter and it’s meaningfulness for me โค

“May grace and peace [that special sense of spiritual well-being] be yours in increasing abundance [as you walk closely with God].

Blessed [gratefully praised and adored] be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His abundant and boundless mercy has caused us to be born again [that is, to be reborn from aboveโ€”spiritually transformed, renewed, and set apart for His purpose] to an ever-living hope and confident assurance through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, [born anew] into an inheritance which is imperishable [beyond the reach of change] and undefiled and unfading, reserved in heaven for you.”
โ€” 1 Peter 1:2-4 Amplified Bible (AMP)

a Liebster Blog Award Nomination . . . for who?!?

Now then, let us continue, without further ado…
this Leibster Blog Award is hereby nominated to:

. . . drum roll please . . .

Wait… whatโ€™s that? Who did you say? Would you mind repeating that, please? Hmmm… hang on… maybe give me a minute to clean the wax out of my ears. Fine, you’re sure about this then? Well okay… if you say so, but I must be hearing things because it sounded like the one being nominated is ME?!? How can that possibly be?!?

. . . aw-shucks . . .

liebster4

Seriously though, all playful teasing aside… It is an honour to be recognized for something Iโ€™ve been putting my heart into. Yes, there are times when the battle against distraction will inevitably be the cause of major delays. And yes, there are times when figuring out how this whole blogging thing works can get to feeling more like work than play. And then there are those times when I wander around wondering whether anyone really notices anyway… But then there are the cyber-smile times of huge-little supportive moments. Moments when someone online comes alongside โ€˜n warms your heart with a nudge of approval ๐Ÿ™‚

Thank You KnitXpressions โค Thanks for filling your own blog with sweet knitting adventures โ€˜n fun stuff. Thanks for nominating my โ€œKnitting With Heartโ€ blog in the same category as your own! And thank you to all my blogful readers who have nudged me by way of comments, โ€œlikesโ€ and follow-ship ๐Ÿ™‚

Oh but wait, thereโ€™s more!

First of all, in order to receive this award, I am asked to reveal 11 random facts about myself… Yikes! Did you maybe just wanna click on over to the Knitting With Heart gravatar? It will link you up with my Ravelry, Craftsy and Pinterest pages. I believe you can tell a lot about a person by the pins they post, wouldnโ€™t you agree?

Next, more specifically, there are 11 questions from the one who nominated me…
Here we go:
#1. What are you most proud of?
. . . .ย This year, I am pleased to have finally started this blog!
#2.ย What makes you happy?
. . . .ย It doesn’t take much to make me happy. Kindness toward others always makes my heart smile.
#3. What is your most prized possession?
. . . .ย Love… because life apart from love would be empty worthlessness.
#4. What are you afraid of?
. . . .ย Pretty much any creepy crawly thing, especially in the dark ๐Ÿ˜›
#5. Why do you blog?
. . . .ย To tell my tales of yarn!
#6.ย How would you describe your style?
. . . .ย Waste not, want not… I love to make/upcycle something from bits of nothing.
#7. What are you most grateful for?
. . . .ย God’s gift of eternal life through the life-death-resurrection of Jesus Christ.
#8. What is the best book you have ever read?
. . . .ย The book of Psalms from the Bible.
#9. What food do you hate?
. . . .ย Pears. They’re pretty to look at, but taste yucky to me!!!
#10. What is your favorite โ€œguilty pleasureโ€ aka โ€œsuper dorkyโ€ song?
. . . .ย Truth be told, I must admit to being a fan of the BBC’s “Mister Maker” TV show… which I first discovered quite by accident, while watching TV with my toddler nephew… true story!
#11. What is your favorite holiday?
. . . . Christmas for the birth of Jesus + Easter for the resurrection of Jesus

And finally, in the spirit of carrying forth the tradition of nomination, here are 11 blogs which I am pleased to nominate… Bloggers listed here are asked to respond likewiseโ€”answering these 3 sets of 11 questionsโ€”in order to accept your own Leibster Blogging Award.

stonechat โ€”โ€ˆfor a friendly breeze from (as we say in Canada) across the pond โค Bucket List Publications โ€” for getting out there and checking-off that proverbial bucket list! โค Wovember โ€” for more than a bale of woolly fluff โค IslandEAT โ€”โ€ˆfor recipes like the 1897 Chocolate Brownie (the very first published recipe) … yes please, Chef! โค Canadian Gift Guide โ€”โ€ˆfor a shopping spree of gift ideas โค polka-dots & sparkles โ€” for a dot of polka with a sprinkleย of sparkle from Down Under โค Lord Jesus Saves โ€”โ€ˆfor peace โ€˜n love, so good for the soul โค Canadian Hiking Photography โ€”โ€ˆfor that scenic WOW! factor โค Knitting Revolution โ€”โ€ˆfor real world purrrfection of handknit cats ‘n cupcakesย  โค Agujas โ€”โ€ˆfor fibrously woven knitting tales โค All She Wants To Do Is Knit โ€”โ€ˆfor a bit of a spin on knitting
