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.

Leafs Me Happy Blog Hop Winner and a Prayer Request

The Leafs Me Happy Hop is over  :(  and I'm sad to see it go but can hardly wait for Wicked!  Wicked is set to begin October 22 and is going to be led by Wendy at Why Not Quilt - it's going to be so much fun!

Meanwhile here at Stitchinbythelake I've got a winner of the glow-in-the-dark Halloween bag - Judy from Shade Tree Quilts will be getting this fun bag (with a few goodies added of course).  I've e-mailed her and will mail it sometime this week.

And for those of you who believe as I do that prayer changes things, please pray for my brother-in-law, Mike, who lost the vision in his right eye last March, and this week lost most of the vision in his left eye.  He and my sister are on their way to The Mayo Clinic right now to see doctors there, hoping to keep the small bit of sight that he has left.  Thank you for joining with me in praying for healing, for strength, for peace and for grace.
