Yesterday after new was Girl Time with my friends Stephanie, Edwina and Christy. Stephanie served an awesome lunch of wraps, green tea and one of her famous orange smoothies. She has a wonderful little growing farmstead ..that girl really knos how to make a satin purse out of a sows ear.
Our topic for the day was weaving. I use to weave ALOT, do demonstrations and craft shows. After my third son was born I gave it up... the 4 harness loom was sold... I gave my lap loom to one of my adopted daughters.
But in this season of life I am having a renewed interest. I was more then happy to share my knowledge yesterday and look forward to starting back on a lap loom soon. Here is a picture of Edwina's Harrisville loom. I am hoping with all my hints that Chris will whip one up for me for Valentine's Day!

Martin Luther King quote for the day:
I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear.

Dave Black wrote several things on the Book of Amos today. My mind went blank and all I could remember about Amos was he was a keeper of sycamore-figs. I brewed a cuppa tea and settled in for some quiet time. Add to Amos job description, shepherd and prophet... my take away
1. God's Sovereignty
2. God's Grace
Amos 4: 13 He who forms the mountains, creates the wind, and reveals his thoughts to man he who turns dawn to darkness, and treads the high places of the earth- the Lord God Almight is his name.
