Hope

Look what God gave to Khi and me today!

Khi picked it from our dogwood tree.

Each year, we anxiously wait for the first signs of autumn. As my Aunt Betty would say, "It's hotter than blue blazes" outside right now. Fall is certainly many, many weeks away. But this little leaf is a message for us to just hang on. The best of our year is yet to come!

Thank you for all the kind words and messages about Benny. His wrist and hand seem to be healing well. However, last night some of the severed nerves must have started waking back up. It was pretty rough, until he got the pain managed.

My EZ mocassin socks have been tossed into the frog pond. The first one came out WAY too big. I'll figure them out later.

I dug out the Debbie Bliss Caitlin cardigan I started for Kaity last year. I already had the back and left front finished. It's a good thing I was knitting a size too large at the time! When life got hard, I put it on the side. During times of stress, my knitting becomes tight. Plus, I didn't want to think about bad memories each time she wore the sweater.

Our times are better now. The leaf is a reminder to "Wait, with Hope and Confidence". So as I put my faith in the promises of God, I'll knit and watch, and allow my Hope and Confidence to grow.
