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?

"Maria" Bookmark

This is a bookmark that I made for my friend, Mary. Mary is fighting a rare type of cancer, and is to travel to M. D. Anderson in Houston this week to discuss her treatment. Mary is a Christian and would love for you to join me in praying for her. I'd already picked this pattern to make for her, but knew it was the right choice when I saw the name "Maria"...it is from the book Tatted Bookmarks and is by Lene Bjorn. It is done in white, Lizbeth size 20.


  1. Lovely cross!

    I will add Mary to my prayer list.

  2. What a wonderful gift! May your friend be blessed! :)

      The pattern is on pages 8 & 9 of the book “Tatted Bookmarks” by Lene Bjorn. It is a wonderful book that has 12 different cross shaped bookmarks. There are very clear pictures and diagrams. It is available through many of the tatting stores, I know
      The Tatting Corner sells it for $11.95.


I love comments from my readers!
