Don't let the difficulties of the present moments overshadow the reality of God's promises. God's promises still stand. And God's promises are stronger than our failures.

I love your list. You are so thoughtful and creative to think of it.
I'm sorry I missed your give away. Ellie is the queen of spit up and goes through burp clothes like crazy. ... oh well... I guess I'd better get busy making some.

Thanks so much for the call. You are special to me. I've been in the sewing room all week. I have more projects to do than I can fit into each day but little by little they are getting done. That makes me smile.

I'm sending hugs to you. Have a great week. Love, Lura

Yay! for God's grace and clean water. I can only imagine what the people in Japan are going through not being able to get clean water.
