"A successful man is one who can lay a firm foundation
with the bricks that others throw at him."
~~ Sidney Greenberg ~~


Then the king gave orders, and Daniel was brought in and cast into the lions' den. The king spoke and said to Daniel, "Your God whom you constantly serve will Himself deliver you." And a stone was brought and laid over the mouth of the den; and the king sealed it with his own signet ring and with the signet rings of his nobles, so that nothing might be changed in regard to Daniel. Then the king went off to his palace and spent the night fasting, and no entertainment was brought before him; and his sleep fled from him. Then the king arose with the dawn, at the break of day, and went in haste to the lions' den. And when he had come near the den to Daniel, he cried out with a troubled voice. The king spoke and said to Daniel, "Daniel, servant of the living God, has your God, whom you constantly serve, been able to deliver you from the lions?" Then Daniel spoke to the king, "O king, live forever! My God sent His angel and shut the lions' mouths, and they have not harmed me, inasmuch as I was found innocent before Him and also toward you, O king, I have committed no crime." Then the king was very pleased and gave orders for Daniel to be taken up out of the den. So Daniel was taken up out of the den, and no injury whatever was found on him, because he had trusted in his God.

Daniel 6:16-23

Praise the Lord! How blessed is the man who fears the Lord, who greatly delights in His commandments. His descendants will be mighty on earth; the generation of the upright will be blessed. Wealth and riches are in his house, and his righteousness endures forever.

Psalm 112:1-3


I love the Lord, because He hears my voice and my supplications. Because He has inclined His ear to me, therefore I shall call upon Him as long as I live. The cords of death encompassed me, and the terrors of Sheol came upon me; I found distress and sorrow. Then I called upon the name of the Lord: "O Lord, I beseech Thee, save my life!" Gracious is the Lord, and righteous; yes, our God is compassionate. The Lord preserves the simple; I was brought low, and He saved me. Return to your rest, O my soul, for the Lord has dealt bountifully with you. For Thou hast rescued my soul from death, my eyes from tears, my feet from stumbling. I shall walk before the Lord in the land of the living. I believed when I said, "I am greatly afflicted." I said in my alarm. "All men are liars." What shall I render to the Lord for all His benefits toward me? I shall lift up the cup of salvation and call upon the name of the Lord. I shall pay my vows to the Lord, oh may it be in the presence of all His people. Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of His godly ones. O Lord, surely I am Thy servant, I am Thy servant, the son of Thy handmade. Thou hast loosed my bonds. To The I shall offer a sacrifice of thanksgiving, and call upon the name of the Lord. I shall pay my vows to the Lord, oh may it be in the presence of all His people, in the courts of the Lord's house, in the midst of you, O Jerusalem. Praise the Lord!

Psalm 1:1-3

RE: How to Crochet - Tips about Baby's ABC's Afghan



I have always wanted to do charts. It just gets overwhelming.

With this chart all you have to remember is which way you read it for each row.
All odd numbered rows will be read from right to left (right side of work will face you) and all even numbered rows are read from left to right (wrong side of work will face you). It helps to draw arrows beside of each row to help you keep track.

Re: Help with crochet instructions

I was wondering if you could please translate the following for me:
"with color 1, ch 2
1st rnd: 6 sc in 2nd ch from hook. Join with scl st to first sc. 6 sc.
2nd rnd: ch 2. (1hdc. Ch 1. 1hdc) in each of next 6 sc. Join with sl st to first hdc. 12 hdc.
3rd rnd: sl st in first ch-1 sp. Ch 2. (1 hdc. Ch 1. 1 hdc) in same sp as sl st. *1 hdc in each of next 2 hdc. (1hdc. Ch1. 1 hdc) in next ch-1 sp. Rep from * to last 2 hdc.
1 hdc in each of last 2 hdc. join with sl st to first hdc."

So, first do I chain stitch two, before the first round?
Then, I first need 7 chain stitches before the 6 single crochet's, right?
Then, do I chain stitch two and then do 1 hdc, chain stitch 1, 1 hdc? And what do they mean by "in each of the next 6 sc.?
Is that referring to the ones in row one or do I do knew ones nw and somehow connect. Them to the pattern?

<< reply >>

With color 1... make 2 chains
now for the first round work 6 single crochet stitches in the second chain from the hook.
Join with a slip stitch to the first single crochet.
(you should have a total of 6 single crochet stitches and this will look like a little circle)

For round 2 you make 2 chains
now work (1 half double crochet, one chain and 1 more half double crochet) all in each of the next 6 single crochet stitches.
Join with a slip stitch in the first half double crochet you made.
(you should have 12 half double crochets and the circle will be larger)

For round 3 you slip stitch in the first chain 1 space (work the slip stitch into the hole beneath the chain... not into the chain itself)
make 2 chains
Work (1 half double crochet, one chain and 1 more half double crochet) all in the same space as the slip stitch
work 1 half double crochet in each of the next 2 half double crochet stitches.
(1 half double crochet, one chain and 1 more half double crochet) all in the next chain 1 space (like before).
Repeat from the asterisk around the piece until you have 2 half double crochets left on the working round. Join with a slip stitch to the first half double crochet.


So, first do I chain stitch two, before the first round?

Then, I first need 7 chain stitches before the 6 single crochet's, right?

Then, do I chain stitch two and then do 1 hdc, chain stitch 1, 1 hdc? And what do they mean by "in each of the next 6 sc.?
just follow the instructions above... “in each of the next 6sc” means you work what was in parentheses in each of those 6 stitches.

Is that referring to the ones in row one or do I do knew ones nw and somehow connect. Them to the pattern?
yes... for each new round you will be working into the stitches of the round you just completed.






Kind words can be short and easy to speak,

"Laughter is an instant vacation." - Milton Berle

One afternoon, while touring the Canyonlands of southern Utah, my husband and I pulled
into the only hotel in a small town. While signing the register, we asked the young
woman behind the desk if our room was air-conditioned.

When she shook her head no, we hesitated, wondering if we should push on to the next
town. Sensing our doubt, she brightened as she came up with a solution. "Just turn on
the heater," she suggested. "Our customers tell us all that comes out is cold air anyway."


So a woman walks into the optometry store to return a pair of eyeglasses she had purchased the week before.

"What seems to be the problem, ma'am?" the optometrist inquired.

"Well, I bought these glasses for my husband last week and they're just not working," the
woman complained.

"Perhaps the lens grinder made an error in filling the prescription."

"I'm sure he must have," the woman confirmed.
"He's still not seeing things my way."


Two elderly sisters donated $20 to a charity and, to their
surprise, won tickets to a football game. Since they had
never seen a live football game before, Madge thought the
free tickets would provide an excellent opportunity for
doing so.

"I think so, too," said Mabel. "Let's go!"

They soon found themselves high in a noisy stadium overlooking
a large, grassy expanse. They watched the kickoff and the
seemingly endless back-and-forth struggles that comprised the
scoreless first half.

They enjoyed the band music and cheerleader performance that
followed. Then came the second half. When the teams lined up
for the second-half kickoff, Madge nudged her sister.

"I guess we can go home now, Mabel," she said. "This is where
we came in."


Grandma Jones from the valley had never experienced a sick day in her life, so she didn't take it kindly when a bad case of the mulligrubs sent her to the hospital for observation. By the time a pair of husky interns got Grandma tucked into bed, she had managed to complain about everything: the temperature, the lights, the skimpy gown, the food and the mattress, especially, the mattress.

Suddenly, Grandma spotted a small plastic item with a button, attached to a cord. "What's that?" she demanded.

"If you need anything in the middle of the night, Grandma," said one of the interns, "just press that button."

"What does it do, ring a bell?" she asked.

"No, it turns on a light in the hall for the nurse on duty," the intern replied.

"A light in the hall?" responded Grandma. "Look, I'm the sick one around here. If the night nurse needs a light on in the hall, she can get up and switch it on herself."


Our kindergarten class went to the fire station for a tour and some instruction in fire safety. The fireman was explaining what to do in case of a fire.

He said, "First, go to the door and feel the door to see if it's hot."

Then he said, "Fall to your knees.
Does anyone know why you ought to fall to our knees?"

One of the little tykes said, "Sure, to start praying to ask God to get us out of this mess!"


The Sunday school teacher was carefully explaining the story of Elijah the Prophet and the false prophets of Baal. She explained how Elijah built the altar, put wood upon it, cut the steer in pieces and laid it upon the altar.

And then Elijah commanded the people of God to fill four barrels of water and pour it over the altar. He had them do this four times.

"Now, said the teacher, "can anyone in the class tell me why the Lord would have Elijah pour water over the steer on the altar?"

A little girl in the back of the room raised her hand with great enthusiasm. "To make the gravy," came her enthusiastic reply.

When he was four, my grandson, Jacob, could hardly
wait for his first day of school. That morning, he
waited anxiously with his mother, Katherine, for
the bus to arrive, then started up the stairs as
soon as the bus pulled up and the doors opened.

With tears in her eyes, Katherine said, "What about
a kiss?"

Jacob stopped, retraced a few steps, then promptly
kissed the bus driver before he took a seat.


Psychiatry students were in their Emotional Extremes class.
"Let's set some parameters," the professor said. "What's
the opposite of joy?" he asked one student.

"Sadness," he replied.

"The opposite of depression?" he asked another student.

"Elation," he replied.

"The opposite of woe?" the prof asked a young woman from

The Texan replied, "Sir, I believe that would be giddyup."

Things Overheard On Noah's Ark

10. "Did anyone think about bringing a couple of umbrellas?"

9. "Hey, there are more than two flies in here!"

8. "Wasn't someone supposed to put two shovels on board?"

7. "OK, who's the wise-guy who brought the mosquitoes on board?"

6. "Help! I need some Pepto for the elephants, QUICK!"

5. "Don't Make Me Pull This Ark Over And Come Back There!"

4. "No Ham, you cannot eat the Pig!"

3. "And whatever you do, DO NOT pull this plug out."

2. "Nice Doggie!"


1. "Are We There Yet?"

While working as a radiology technician in a hospital emergency room, I took x-rays of a trauma patient. I brought the films to our radiologist, who studied the multiple fractures of the femurs and pelvis.

"What happened to this patient?" he asked in astonishment.

"He fell out of a tree," I reported.

The radiologist wanted to know what the patient was doing up a tree.

"I'm not sure, but his paperwork states he works for Bob's Expert Tree Service."

Gazing intently at the x-rays, the radiologist blinked and said, "Cross out 'Expert.'"

As we returned from Bible School, my young daughter Melissa asked if we could stop at
the library.

When I asked her why, she explained, "This morning my teacher told me that the only way
we get to heaven is if our name is written in the Lamb's Book of Life. I just want to make
sure that my name is in there!"


A wife returning from a fishing trip with her husband was telling her troubles to a neighbor. "I did everything all wrong again today," she said.

"I talked too loud, I used the wrong bait, I reeled in too soon, and I caught more fish than he did."
