What you do in your house is worth as much as if you did it up in heaven for our Lord God. We should accustom ourselves to think of our position and work as sacred and well-pleasing to God, not on account of the position and work, but on account of the word and faith from which the obedience and the work flow. ~ Martin Luther

Crafting On


A few days late for the crafting on yarn along but that's how I roll...

Finished up sweater #1 and realized the pretty lace pattern on the bottom gets swallowed up in this particular yarn.  I decided to do sweater #2 in a slightly different pattern to avoid the lace bit at the end.  I finished that one up this morning and it is now being blocked too.  Just needs a few buttons sewn on and then both will be done.  What happens after that?  I wish I knew.

Bought the book Adopted for LIFE: The Priority of Adoption for Christian Families and Churches by Russell Moore a few weeks ago and positively devoured it.  I am forcing Matt to read it now.  ;-)   I think this book ought to be a MUST READ for every pro-life person and, most especially, for every.single.Christian to read.  As adopted sons and daughters, we know firsthand the great joy that adoption brings to the fatherless- as we once were.   And as sons and daughters of a Heavenly Father and King, we have a perfect example to emulate. We, His church, ought to be at the forefront of the fight for the orphaned, widowed and unloved.  Russell Moore gives a stirring call to all believers to not just love the idea of caring for orphans- but to actually be DOING it.  And he encourages believers in all circumstances to do their part- and explains so wonderfully how everybody has a "part"- even if they are unable to adopt themselves. 

Just really good.

I wish I was able to adopt. I'm single and have an autoimmune disorder. Maybe someday I'll meet Mr. Right and will have the opportunity. Hope you are blessed to adopt and give babies a good and Christian home. :)

<3 Wish that adoption was easier... But it's an amazing thing when it happens for sure <3

This book looks good! I would like to borrow it at some point-- yes, indeed-- and since I'm more interested in the topic (sorry, Popes and Feminists), I would return it promptly, having read it, no less. Still want to hear your spoken thoughts on both, though! Perhaps during that someday visit that doesn't include Rose Reds growing too fast or vacations in the Hawaiian Islands, yes?

The Wee sweaters are coming along nicely, and fast! Good thing, too, considering the lucky little ones who get to wear them are doing the same. I continue praying for you all.

That yarn is gorgeous! And thank you for highlighting the importance of adoption, or if that isn't an option fostering precious little ones.
