From My Friend, Susan, of NC - 01/26/16:
we remember that the wisdom of God ofttimes appears as foolishness to
men; but the greatest lesson we can learn in mortality is that when God
speaks and we obey, we will always be right.”|

From Paul's Niece, Jackie, of IL - 01/26/19:
“Youth and beauty are not accomplishments, they’re the temporary happy
by-products of time and/or DNA. Don’t hold your breath for either.”
From My Niece, Shari, of VA - 12/30/18 - "DIY HOME PROJECTS (#16 in a Series of 20)":
some of these super ideas and hope others do too.
The stone carpet is awesome. My great aunt, who used live in Williamsburg, did some stone work on her patio. It was pretty, but not this detailed. Looks like a fun project to do with others. It would be quite the endeavor for one.
The cheese grater one is also one I like, a lot. The simplicity is nice and gives it a vintage feel.
There are so many talented people in our world!
OOH! Thank you, Shari!

This pattern works up quickly, using an easy stitch pattern to produce a light and airy finished shawl. Great for a last-minute gift, or a quick and stylish accessory for yourself...." - Not free, but only $4.50|

channels. She asked, "What's on the TV?"
I answered, "Dust."
