“Live so that when your children think of fairness and integrity, they think of you.”

~ H. Jackson Brown Jr. ~

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

O Lord, who may abide in Thy tent? Who may dwell on Thy holy hill? He who walks with integrity, and works righteousness, and speaks truth in his heart. He does not slander with his tongue, nor does evil to his neighbor, nor takes up a reproach against his friend; in whose eyes a reprobate is despised, but who honors those who fear the Lord; he swears to his own hurt, and does not change; he does not put out his money at interest, nor does he take a bribe against the innocent. He who does these things will never be shaken.

Psalm 15:1-5

He who walks in integrity walks securely, but he who perverts his ways will be found out.

Proverbs 10:9

Better is a poor man who walks in his integrity than he who is perverse in speech and is a fool.

Proverbs 19:1


But I say to you who hear, love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you. Whoever hits you on the cheek, offer him the other also; and whoever takes away your coat, do not withhold your shirt from him either. Give to everyone who asks of you, and whoever takes away what is yours, do not demand it back. And just as you want people to treat you, treat them in the same way. And if you love those who love you, what credit is that to you? For even sinners love those who love them. And if you lend to those from whom you expect to receive, what credit is that to you? Even sinners lend to sinners, in order to receive back the same amount. But love your enemies, and do good, and lend, expecting nothing in return; and your reward will be great, and you will be sons of the Most High; for He Himself is kind to ungrateful and evil men. Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful. And do not judge and you will not be judged; and do not condemn, and you will not be condemned; pardon, and you will be pardoned. Give, and it will be given to you; good running over, they will pour into your lap. For by your standard of measure it will be measured to you in return.

Luke 6:27-38


A new commandment I give unto you, that ye love one another; even as I have loved you, that ye also love one another. By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.

John 13:34-35

For we know that if the earthly tent which is our house is torn down, we have a building from God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens. For indeed in this house we groan, longing to be clothed with our dwelling from heaven; inasmuch as we, having put it on, shall not be found naked. For indeed while we are in this tent, we groan, being burdened, because we do not want to be unclothed, but to be clothed, in order that what is mortal may be swallowed up by life. Now He who prepared us for this very purpose is God, who gave to us the Spirit as a pledge. Therefore, being always of good courage, and knowing that while we are at home in the body we are absent from the Lord -- for we walk by faith, not by sight -- we are of good courage, I say, and prefer rather to be absent from the body and to be at home with the Lord. Therefore also we have as our ambition, whether at home or absent, to be pleasing to Him. For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, that each one may be recompensed for his deeds in the body, according to what he has done, whether good or bad. Therefore knowing the fear of the Lord, we persuade men, but we are made manifest to God; and I hope that we are made manifest also in your consciences. We are not again commending ourselves to you but are giving you an occasion to be proud of us, that you may have an answer for those who take pride in appearance, and not in heart. For if we are beside ourselves, it is for God; if we are of sound mind, it is for you. For the love of Christ controls us, having concluded this, that one died for all, therefore all died; and He died for all, that they who live should no longer live for themselves, but for Him who died and rose again on their behalf. Therefore from now on we recognize no man according to the flesh; even though we have known Christ according to the flesh, yet now we know Him thus no longer. Therefore if any man is in Christ, he is a new creature; the old things passed away; behold, new things have come. Now all these things are from God, who reconciled us to Himself through Christ, and gave us the ministry of reconciliation, namely, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and He has committed to us the word of reconciliation. Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were entreating through us; we beg you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God. He made Him who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.

2 Corinthians 5:1-21

I have a question: Do you know the math for crocheting an oval rug? If I
wanted a rug a certain finished length, how long of a beginning chain do I

with this information? Thank you Lisa! God bless! Emmy

Help - I am trying to make a pattern that has a star in the center of a block. This is the pattern calls for 2 colors and is in all sc. I have figured out how to do the first line of two colors - intrasia - but I can't figure out the second line. It seems that the yarn is on the wrong side. Is there a link, YouTube or place to show this.

This means you :

Work the following stitches all in the next chain 3 space
(into the hole beneath those 3 chains... not into any of the actual chains):

double crochet
chain 1, double crochet
chain 1, double crochet
chain 1, double crochet
chain 1, double crochet

How to Start a Tutoring Business



Threads N Stitches



This book is a wonderful addition to any crochet library.
I've had numerous requests over the years of what to crochet for boys.
Crobots are definitely the answer!
This 96-page book is filled with numerous types of Crobot patterns as well as well-illustrated instructions for the
crochet stitches, assembly stitches and other embellishments used in the patterns.
The patterns are well written, some of the book is written in a small font but the pictures are wonderful. NOTE: This book comes to you with a safety warning regarding the small parts used in the patterns.
Therefore, please use your own discretion as to the age of the child you intend the gift for.

A little boy sent a "get well quick" card to his grandfather
in the hospital. Inside the card he wrote:

Dear Grandpa,

Mama tells me that you went to the hospital for some tests.
I hope you get an "A"!

Love, Billy



I was the teacher for a toddler-aged Sunday School class,

which included my 14-month old daughter. During our lesson
on creation, I'd ask questions like, "Who made the trees?"
or "Who made the sun?" and the children would respond,
"God did!"

I was pleased that the children seemed to quickly learn
that God made everything.

The lessons at home weren't going so well. I had tried

repeatedly to get my daughter to pick up her toys when

she was done with them, and she just wasn't learning this

very quickly at all.

One day I walked into the living room to find toys scattered

simply everywhere. In exasperation I asked, "Who made this

My daughter looked at me, beamed a proud smile, and
exclaimed, "God did!"


All the grandkids were visiting for Thanksgiving. Before
dinner, Grandma made a lengthy speech about being thankful
for her extra-special blessings, her four grandchildren.

Two seconds after she stopped speaking, all hell broke
loose and the kids were yelling and grabbing for the
home-made rolls.Grandma sat there, eyes closed with a
tight squint on her face.

When asked what was the matter, she replied, "I'm just
praying for a little patience to handle all these blessings."


Little Johnny and his family lived in the country, and
as a result, they seldom had guests. Johnny was eager
to help his mother after his father appeared with two
dinner gu ests from the office.

When the dinner was nearly over, Little Johnny went to
the kitchen and proudly carried in the first piece of
apple pie, giving it to his father, who passed it to
a guest. Little Johnny came in with a second piece of
pie and gave it to his father, who again gave it to a

This was too much for Little Johnny, who said, "It's
no use, Dad. The pieces are all the same size."


The professor of a graduate-school class included
a huge amount of material on the midterm exam. As
tension in the room built, people were sighing and
gasping aloud.

The following week the professor tossed the graded
papers on her desk and announced, "Class, after I
left here last week, the Lord spoke to me. He said,
'Thanks, professor. I haven't heard from some of
those people in years!'"

Barb's granddaughter was in kindergarten. There
was a boy in her class that wasn't listening to
the teacher.

The teacher said to him, "Since you don't want to
listen, you sit at that table by yourself."

After a few minutes, Barb's granddaughter raised
her hand and said, "I don't want to listen either.
Can I sit with him?"

It was late afternoon at the crowded Shopping Mall
when the distraught woman dashed to a phone and
called a cab.

She stood there outside until the taxi drove up.

"Where to M'am?" the driver asked.

"Just keep driving around the parking lot," she
said, "I'm afraid I've lost my car again!"

A small town Doctor was famous in the area for always catching the largest fish.

One day while he was on one of his frequent fishing trips he got a call that a woman at a neighboring farm was giving birth. He rushed to her aid and delivered a healthy baby boy.

The farmer had nothing to weigh the baby with so the Doctor used his fishing scales.

The baby weighed 22 lbs 10 oz.

An exasperated mother, whose son was always getting

into mischief, finally asked him, "How do you expect to get into Heaven?"

The boy thought it over and said,

"Well, I'll just run in and out and in and out and

keep slamming the door until St. Peter says,

'For Heaven's sake, Jimmy, come in or stay out!'"


My class was touring the ASPCA, oohing and aahing over the

lost- and-waiting-to-be-adopted animals. One of my third grade
boys was gazing intently at an elaborate aquarium full of
different species of fish.

"They're beautiful, aren't they," I commented.

He looked at me thoughtfully, then replied, "Yes, but I don't can anyone lose a fish?"

A man walked up to a vending machine, put in a coin,
and pressed the button labeled, "Coffee, double cream,
sugar." No cup appeared. Then two nozzles went into
action, one sending forth coffee, the other, cream.

After the proper amounts had gone down the drain where
the cup should have been, the machine turned off.

"Now that's real automation," the man exclaimed. "This
thing even drinks it for you."

A little boy came home from kindergarten with a blue

When his mommy asked him "What is the blue ribbon for?"
he proudly announced, "I won!"

When pressed for details he simply said, "The teacher asked
all of us to guess how many legs an insect has. When my turn
came, I guessed FIVE."

"Five???" his mother replied, "but an insect has SIX

"I won because my guess was the closest."
