He knows my name!

My life verse: "I will give you the treasures of darkness And hidden riches of secret places, That you may know that I, the Lord, Who call you by your name, Am the God of Israel." (Isaiah 45:3). For me, "the treasures of darkness" has been the medically-treated depression that I have suffered off and on with for years. More than anything else in my life, I think this has made me realize how much my Savior loves me and has deepened my relationship with God. The "hidden riches of secret places" are my wonderful family and this fabulous craft--tatting! I thank God for both!
I think it is awesome that God knows my name! Did you know that He knows yours?

Shawl--9 months

This week my grandson is 9 months old! I started this shawl about the time he was born. At this time, it measures approximately 40 inches X 12 inches. I'm making it from a modified version of motif #30 from the book Tatted Fashion by Teiko Fujito. Modified, in that I left off the last round (it rounded the motif, whereas I wanted it six-sided,) and I left off a picot in the previous round. It is made of Lizbeth Threads: #113, #633, #625, #601, and #663. Here is my wonderful hubby holding our grandson on the day he was born and then again now....I think my grandson is growing faster than my shawl! My goal is to have it finished before his first day in school!

Speaking of my dear husband, I have to share. Last month my husband was given the Merit of
Excellence award for the High School Teacher of 2010 by the Professional Oklahoma Educators! In layman's terms the "High School Teacher of the Year". He's taught for 28 years at the same school. He truly loves his job and I am always proud of him....but now the world knows how great he really is!
