Sunday Rest

Grateful for Sunday afternoon rest!
The much needed pause at the beginning of the week. Down time.
Return to your rest, my soul, for the LORD has been good to you.
Psalm 116:7

I am grateful for the freedom to worship the One who created us for relationship. And deeply  grateful for the Holy Spirit who comforts, guides, and counsels!Grateful for the faithful who have prayed and worship in this building for 125 years.

Grateful to have finally finished the left side of Ed’s vest. Only the remaining upper right front to go and then the neck and arm hole ribbing.

Grateful that over half the fiber, shown on the spindle above, has been spun. It might become a scarf, or shawl depending on how the finished yarn turns out and the yardage.

What five things are you grateful for today?

I never dreamed my life would be entangled with fiber and the tools used to produce fibery items. When I bought a boat shuttle used in weaving Ed looked at it, decided to make a better one and the rest is history. For a decade he made shuttles, crochet hooks, knitting needles, until his spindles became so popular that he had to devote his time to making them, as well as Walking Wheels. Free time is spent reading, trying to coax food from the ground, and playing in the creek near our place. I love long walks and camping far from crowds. Playing a fiddle beside a stream or with good friends brings sweetness to my soul. Sundays are set aside for worshiping God with our small Quaker meeting.

  2. My five gratefuls for Sunday:
    1. my family
    2. that the unpacking of the house is almost complete
    3. my beautiful Disco, who brings me such joy
    4. that I have a safe warm home and know where my next meal is coming from
    5. my friends, near and far

  3. 1. A little nosegay of nasturtiums from our allotment – probably the last of the year, as we woke to frost this morning.
    2. A kind husband who is cooking roast chicken dinner for us after he’s been working in our back garden, weeding and cutting back the brambles.
    3. The view from my bedroom window, where I can look across the River Mersey and The Wirral to the hills of Wales, and on exceptionally clear days to the mountains of Snowdonia. This morning was one of those days, and we could see snow on the distant mountains. Clouded over now.
    4. The company of my television! I’m disabled and spend a lot of my time in bed. My TV keeps me entertained and informed.
    5. The wonder of the Internet, where I have many friends who I will never meet in Real Life. But I feel blessed to know them and communicate with them.
