Hey there . . just wanted to let you know that this morning, 1.5.19, I found I have a patron at www.patreon.com/karenjoyce. . . so I am, for now, going to pause deleting posts from that site and moving them here. . . although I may switch to copy/paste . . probably will in time . . For now, though, I need to focus on getting posts on that blog also . . and get back to regular posts here.
@Morgaine620 ~ 🤗 Huge hugs 😘 for being my patron . . You Rock❣️
But thou shalt remember the LORD thy God: for it is he that giveth thee power to get wealth, that he may establish his covenant which he sware unto thy fathers, as it is this day.
Lord, I pray this verse over my future husband . . keep him mindful of You all day.

Good morning!! Here we sit in the clubhouse . . Matt's in his Modern U.S. History class and I'm quilting . . a pleasant group of gentlemen are across the room drinking coffee and chatting . . Matt's already finished his Math, Physical Science and English classes!! It's been drizzling off/on . . my laundry's in the dryer and my coffee (32oz) is almost gone . . I am thinking a caffeine-desperate mouse raids my cup every time I go check laundry!! 😉

23rd~ 3 gifts old. . .
* lessons from their history
* lives well-lived
* His sacrifice
24th~ 3 gifts moving . . .
* changes He's making in me
* waves as I fall asleep
25th~ 3 gifts fragile. .
26th~ a gift cut, sewn, buttoned . .
* new plan
* hope in Him
Something about a Monday morning started with time with my Heavenly Father! Waking before Matt needed to rise for school gave me time to pray and seek His Will . . then, after Matt went up to the clubhouse to begin his first day at OHDELA (tell you about the miracle they are to us later!), I realized why the cabin lights had little to no power . . when Matt put the shelf back over the inboard motor he accidentally unplugged the battery recharger!! Thank you Jesus for showing me as I'd figured I needed to buy new marine batteries (again) and a new charger . . 💰💰💰 God really watches over the two (2) of us every minute and is making every step of obedience to Him a greater blessing than the last!!!

Today I finished this patch and feel like I've mastered the Palestrina Knot Stitch.
This patch places me at 74 total hours invested. But, more than that, this quilt is a great way to work through the loss of my brother.

KJV Bible. 2 Esdras 6:1-6 "And he said unto me, In the beginning, when the earth was made, before the borders of the world stood, or ever the winds blew, Before it thundered and lightened, or ever the foundations of paradise were laid, Before the fair flowers were seen, or ever the moveable powers were established, before the innumerable multitude of angels were gathered together, Or ever the heights of the air were lifted up, before the measures of the firmament were named, or ever the chimneys in Sion were hot, And ere the present years were sought out, and or ever the inventions of them that now sin were turned, before they were sealed that have gathered faith for a treasure: Then did I consider these things, and they all were made through me alone, and through none other: by me also they shall be ended, and by none other." We can count our days on earth but we cannot know for certain when He will call us home. We can study His Word but only He will know ahead the date of Jesus return. Before we become too inflated with our accomplishments it's good to step back and remember Who made this all possible~ only Jesus!!

Hey there! How's your live aboard diet? Eating a lot of sprouts?
I can see that this won't work for sailing on the ocean as salt water spray will kill the plants . .
A shallow tub with fresh potting soil. . a few veggie seeds and a healthy future awaits . .
I can see this as a seriously sustainable prospect for freshwater live aboards!!
Imagine fresh squash, lettuce and chives every day!!
