WORDS OF ENCOURAGEMENT
I will bless the Lord who has counseled me; Indeed, my mind instructs me in the night.
Therefore I want the men in every place to pray, lifting up holy hands, without wrath and dissension.
1 Timothy 2:8
In peace I will both lie down and sleep, for Thou alone, O Lord, dost make me to dwell in safety.
"WHEN YOU CAN'T SLEEP, DONT' COUNT SHEEP. TALK TO THE SHEPHERD"
This quote is from Our Daily Bread - March, 2001 Issue.

Your testimony is beautiful. You are blessed to have the Lord in your life
as you raise your family. It took longer for me and my husband to really
know Jesus. After our children were raised, at the age of 50, both of us
accepted Jesus as Lord of our lives. I guess that too, was in His timing.
Now, we have two more sons to pray for to receive Jesus.
Thank you for your spiritual inspirations and crochet inspirations.
I just found your site and was deeply BLESSED .I am so glad that you are not ashamed of our LORD AND SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST. My husband and I do missionary work in Harlen,KT.We live in western NC not to far from you.Keep up the good work and GOD BLESS. Regina Wilson
Hi, my name is Karla. Just wanted to let you know I made a Sweater for my new puppy, Goliath, using your pattern. Goliath is a Chihuahua & he really needed a sweater for the cold weather in Oklahoma during the winter. Of course, I could find none his size in the stores. So, I began a search on the web. I found several Knitted sweaters,but I do not knit. Finally, my boyfriend found your pattern. Thanks a lot!! I have made 2 sweaters so far for Goliath. Everyone loves them. Of course, Goliath is still getting use to them. At least his body is protected from the cold now.
I have attached a pic of Goliath in his blue sweater, hope you like it. I modified the pattern a bit, but I would have had no idea where to start without your pattern.
One question, can I link your website to mine. I am working on a page for Goliath & I plan on starting a crochet site.
Thanks for your pattern & please let me know what you think of the pic.
See Goliath and many others in...

Finding one of her students making faces at others on the
playground, Ms. Smith stopped to gently reprove the child.
Smiling sweetly the teacher said, "Johnny, when I was a child,
I was told if I made ugly faces I would stay like that."
Little Johnny looked up and replied, "Well you can't say you
My Job Interview
Phil went to apply for a job. After filling out all of his
applications, he waited anxiously for the outcome. The
employer read all his applications and said,
"We have an opening for people like you."
"Oh, great," he said, "What is it?"
"It's called the door!"
He Comes For The Rest...
One afternoon, I was in the backyard hanging the
laundry when an old, tired-looking dog wandered
into the yard. I could tell from his collar and
well-fed belly that he had a home. But when I
walked into the house, he followed me, sauntered
down the hall and fell asleep in a corner. An hour
later, he went to the door, and I let him out. The
next day he was back. He resumed his position in
the hallway and slept for an hour. This continued
for several weeks. Curious, I pinned a note to his
collar: "Every afternoon your dog comes to my house
for a nap. " The next day he arrived with a
different note pinned to his collar: "He lives in a
home with ten children - he's trying to catch up on
I Have Two Questions
Jimmie, an 80-year-old gentleman, retired to Florida after his wife of
58 years had passed away. He was quite alone in the world and longed for
companionship. One day, as he was walking through a public park, he
spied what he considered to be a very pretty silver-haired lady sitting
alone on a park bench. Getting his nerve up, he approached the lady and
asked graciously, "Pardon me, ma'am, but may I sit here with you." The
silver-haired Marcia looked up to see a distinguished looking
white-haired gentleman and replied, "Why certainly," and scooted over
gently to give him room to sit down.
For the next two hours the two of them sat and talked about everything. They
discovered that they came from the same part of the country, liked the same
big band music, voted for the same presidential candidates, had had long
happy marriages and lost their spouses in the last year, and in general
agreed about almost everything.
Finally, the old gentleman cleared his throat and asked sheepishly, "Ma'am,
may I ask you two questions?"
With great anticipation Marcia replied, "Why certainly!" The old
gentleman removed a handkerchief from his coat pocket and spread it out on
the ground before her. He very gingerly got down on one knee and looked her
softly in the eyes. "Marcia, I know we've only known each
other for a couple of hours, but we have so much in common. I feel I
have known you all my life. Will you marry me and be my wife?"
Marcia grabbed at Jimmie's hands and said, "Why, yes, I will marry you! You
have made me so very happy!" She reached over and kissed him gently on the
Then Marcia said, "You said you had two questions to ask me.
What is the second question?"
Jimmie scratched his neck and said, "Will you help me get up?"
The Final Exam
A young college student had stayed up all night studying
for his zoology test the next day. As he entered the
classroom, he saw ten stands with ten birds on them, with a
sack over each bird and only the legs showing. He sat right
on the front row, because he wanted to do the best job
The professor announced that the test would be to look at
each of the birds' legs and give the common name, habitat,
genus, species, etc. The student looked at each of the
birds' legs. They all looked the same to him. He began to
get upset. He had stayed up all night studying and now had
to identify birds by their legs. The more he thought about
it the madder he got.
Finally, he could stand it no longer.
He went up to the professor's desk and said, "What a
stupid test! How could anyone tell the difference between
birds by looking at their legs?" With that the student
threw his test on the professor's desk and walked to the
The professor was surprised. The class was so big that he
didn't know every student's name, so as the student reached
the door the professor called, "Mister, what's your name!"
The enraged student pulled up his pants legs and said...
"You guess, buddy! You guess!"
