The Inconvenient Truth

Well, if you want the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth, here it is. This is not an endorsement of the republican party. I'm an independent voter. This is just a matter of the truth.

Babies are Babies

Babies are babies, that's all that babies are. Whether pre-born or after birth, they are babies.  I wish Americans would wake up and remember that "they are precious in His sight"!

This is an interesting article, you might want to read it (Family Research Council):

My beautiful niece

My beautiful niece died last week. Since her mom and dad broke up about 3 years ago, I've been mothering her. The cancer, only 5 in the WORLD had it, now 4, was too aggressive. She, who had never wanted anything from me crocheted said, Auntie, you promised me a bblanket.

I know she never did, but figurred out the chemo meds and pain meds made her brain mushy. So I said, what color? "Purple! I like anything purple." "Purple it is!"

I went to Walmart that evening, got badly CORNtaminated, sent her pictures of the yarn, she chose a bright purple and multicolors that matched and I started to crochet. Next day, Sunday, I got a really bad case of high heart pulse. I asked her, "Lines or waves?"

"Waves! and purple!"  "Yes, sweetie, purple."

And after the 2nd or 3rd row, I knew she would never see it in person. And so it happened. Every time I sent her a picture, asking if she wanted me to change color, it was always "More purple!"
"Yes, more purple, my little darling."

My twin came last week from the States. She really couldn't afford this trip, but she said she felt an urgency to come and share the Gospel with Nazira and her mom. And she did. Arrived Wednesday afternoon, saw her Thursday evening, Thursday night Nazzie asked for a Bible, and at midnight she fell asleep and left us.

My brother, Joe, wants me to finish the blanket. He wants to place it over her bed, in her little bedroom.

And I will.

More purple!  Yes, my little darling, "more purple". Anything for you. Even though you're gone, "more purple".

Thanks for "listening"

Everybody is talking about Ravelry

Yeah, Ravelry is in the news. I've read a lot of what's happening and I have a few thoughts on the matters.

1. Ravelry is not a public corporation, it's private.
2. Ravelry "seems" to be leaning to The Left. Let's be clear, not democrats, but The Left. That's different.
3. Ravelry should stick to yarn projects and not permit politics. It's more than I want or care to handle, and I am not in agreement with their beliefs, therefore it IS my prerogative to leave a group that I find disrespectful or hostile to my classic beliefs.
4. I'm happy not being a part of that group. If you stay with Ravelry, that's fine with me, we're still friends or friendly, I have no problem with that.

I hope Ravelry continues to prosper, and hope that they reconsider being mixed up with politics and such.

God's abundant blessings to all of you. ✟✟✟

John 3: 10-21

10 Jesus answered and said to him, “You are the teacher of Israel, and you don’t know these things? 11 Amen, amen, I am saying to you that we are speaking what we have known and we are testifying what we have seen, and you are not receiving our testimony. 12 If I said to you the earthly things and you aren’t believing, how will you believe if I should say to you the heavenly things? 13 And no one has ascended into heaven except the One having descended out of heaven: the Son of Man, Who is in heaven. 14 And just as Moses lifted up the snake in the wilderness, so it is necessary for the Son of Man to be lifted up, 15 so that everyone believing in Him shouldn’t perish, but should be having eternal life. 16 For God was thus devoted to the world: that He gave His unique Son, so that everyone believing in Him shouldn’t perish, but should be having eternal life. 17 For God didn’t send His Son into the world so that He might be judging the world, but so that the world might be saved through Him. 18 The one believing in Him isn’t being judged, but the one not believing has been judged already, because he hasn’t believed in the name of the unique Son of God. 19 And this is the judgment: that the light has come into the world, and men were more devoted to the darkness than to the light, for their works were evil. 20 For everyone practicing wickedness hates the light and doesn’t come to the light, so that his works might not be rebuked. 21 But the one doing the truth comes to the light so that his works may be manifested, that they are worked in God.

Still working on ponchos

Crocheting whenever I can or feel like it. One for Nadia N.
She chose the colors from Red Heart yarn. Come to think of it, she usually wears darker colors. And she wants it longer than Natasha's poncho. No picture of Natasha in hers. Maybe one of these days she'll send me one.

Why All the Hate?

Do you wonder, "Why all the hate?"

I do.

People are not speaking to each other because of a preference. Or a political party. Or their values. I really really don't get it. Why? If you like purple, and I prefer yellow, is that a reason why I should quit speaking to you? Anybody who likes purple is hateful, is crazy, shouldn't be allowed to vote, to speak, to live.

Yes, that's how ridiculous it is. Just because I may be a democrat, and you a republican, should we stop speaking to each other? Yellow and purple.

Because you think a wall should be built, and I don't agree, I should quit speaking to you? Yellow and purple.

How about if you prefer blueberries and I like apples? Should we stop speaking? Yellow and purple.

What if I think abortion is wrong and you think it's moral. Do we stop speaking? We stop being neighbors? Does that mean I don't have a right to have a voice in this country? Should YOUR voice be silenced by whatever means, just because we don't agree? Whatever happened to "agreeing to disagree"? Or is it now, you don't agree with me, so you don't have the right to speak. Or vote? Or live.

Yellow and purple.

Whoever the president is, he or she is our president. Let's respect the OFFICE of the presidency. Let's respect our legislators, let's respect our senators. They are people, they are human beings. I think that lots of people who are criminals are getting more respect than a lot of people in our country who haven't broken any laws.

And let's pray for our leaders. They need our prayers, they need our intercession every day. And let's remember the Golden Rule: Treat others as you would have them treat you.

Or else it will all come down to yellow and purple. And don't think that because you're purple that things will go well with you. If things continue, none of us will have any freedom of expression, neither the yellows nor the purples, because, in the end, when there is social chaos, such as the kind that has been engineered in the United States of America for the past decades, the government will step in even more than it already has and will tell you what you're allowed to think, while it takes your hard-earned money to pay for programs we really don't need. But then that's another story.

It's time we think, really think things out. Do we let someone get away with things because they, too, like purple, but if the yellows do it, cry "Bloody murder!" and "Off with their heads!"? The government is trying to tell us what to think, the media is trying to tell us what to think. Are you going with the flow because it's easier, or will you stop and say, "Hey! Something's rotten here!" and calmly make your own decisions?

Just remember, Yellow and Purple.

More Mindless Crochet

Using Lion Brand Ice Cream, I think it's called.
Still no new clients. I do have one, but he has to finish a history book, and I have to do the 2nd proofreading, not the 1st. That means nothing for about 3 months. I'm happy just resting, taking care of Mom, and throwing out stuff that I will never use, even though they were very important a few years ago. I think that I can't do that to my kids, if I leave them a messy accumulation of 30 years of junk to them, precious to me.

This blankie is not for anybody in particular. In fact, I think I started it last year, while Hurricane Irma was hitting the Island, but it didn't do much damage in my town, thanks be to the Lord.

Catch you all later. Blessings from our Lord Jesus Christ!
