God's Decision not Man's

"1611 KJV. Genesis 41:39-45
[39]And Pharaoh said vnto Ioseph, Forasmuch as God hath shewed thee all this, there is none so discreete and wise, as thou art:
[40]Thou shalt be ouer my house, and according vnto thy word shall all my people be ruled: only in the throne will I be greater then thou.
[41]And Pharaoh said vnto Ioseph, See, I haue set thee ouer all the land of Egypt.
[42]And Pharaoh tooke off his ring from his hand, & put it vpon Iosephs hand, and arayed him in vestures of fine linnen, and put a gold chaine about his necke.
[43]And he made him to ride in the second charet which he had: and they cried before him, Bow the knee: and he made him ruler ouer all the land of Egypt.
[44]And Pharaoh said vnto Ioseph, I am Pharaoh, and without thee shall no man lift vp his hand or foote, in all the land of Egypt.
[45]And Pharaoh called Iosephs name, Zaphnath-Paaneah, and he gaue him to wife Asenath the daughter of Poti-pherah, priest of On: and Ioseph went out ouer all the lande of Egypt."

       I love the story of Joseph more every time I read it. One simple reason~ no matter what evil others did to him God still continued to bless and use Him in mighty ways!

James W. Joyce Memorial Crazy Quilt

Hi! Sorry I haven't posted much today. My day was busy with planning our future and making sure to dot my T's and cross my I's!! But, seriously, I have a lot on my plate and absolutely must make sure all changes in every aspect of our lives work well with Matt's autism.
Last night and on my lunch and breaks today, I did work on this patch. I saw this stitch in a book at the library. I have no idea the name of the stitch and have embellished it with love knots for extra fun!
What do you think?
This patch brings my total hours invested to 47.25!!

Temperature in My Car . . pt. 2

Hi! Just a quick update as to my findings so far on comparison of temperature inside and outside my car. Yesterday morning I took this picture. It was 48*F both inside and outside my car at about 8:00am. This leads me to believe that an unoccupied car is the same temperature inside as the outside weather all night.
Last night we drove around a bit (an hour) with the heat on low then stopped at Bicentennial Park to play Pokémon. After sitting in the car (with the heat and engine off) over half an hour it was still 70*F in the car, but 56*F outside. I am wondering how long an occupied car retains heat overnight without running the engine? I do know that, the night Matt and I did the overnight adventure at Walmart, it was very warm and humid in the car in the morning (5:15am). How much does body heat and proper dress play in homeless surviving in vehicles over the winter?
Just now, as I entered my car on my break, I saw that it was 46*F, overcast and raining outside and only 52*F in the unoccupied car.
Hmmm ..  .
My next experiment will be adding passive solar heat to my car. We'll see what impact that has . .
Stay tuned!!!
