“What you are doing I may not be able to do .....
What I am doing you may not be able to do ....
But all of us together are doing something
beautiful for God.”

~ Mother Teresa ~

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

Now this I say, he who sows sparingly shall also reap sparingly; and he who sows bountifully shall also reap bountifully. Let each one do just as he has purposed in his heart; not grudgingly or under compulsion; for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to make all grace abound to you, that always having all sufficiency in everything, you may have an abundance for every good deed; as it is wirtten, "He scattered abroad, He gave to the poor, His righteousness abides forever." Now He who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food, will supply and multiply your seed for sowing and increase the harvest of your righteousness; you will be enriched in everything for all liberality, which through us is producing thanksgiving to God. For the ministry of this service is not only fully supplying the needs of the saints, but is also overflowing through many thanksgivings to God.

2 Corinthians 9:6-12


If therefore there is any encouragement in Christ, if there is any consolation of love, if there is any fellowship of the Spirit, if any affection and compassion, make my joy complete by being of the same mind, maintaining the same love, united in spirit, intent on one purpose. Do nothing from selfishness or empty conceit, but with humility of mind let each of you regard one another as more important than himself; do not merely look out for your own personal interests, but also for the interests of others. Have this attitude in yourselves which was also in Christ Jesus, who, although He existed in the form of God, did not regard equality with God a thing to be grasped, but emptied Himself, taking the form of a bond-servant, and being made in the likeness of men. And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. Therefore also God highly exalted Him, and bestowed on Him the name which is above every name, that at the name of Jesus EVERY KNEE SHOULD BOW, of those who are in heaven, and on earth, and under the earth, and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. So then, my beloved, just as you have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your salvation with fear and trembling; for it is God who is at work in you, both to will and to work for His good pleasure. Do all things without grumbling or disputing; that you may prove yourselves to be blameless and innocent, children of God above reproach in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom you appear as lights in the world, holding fast the word of life, so that in the day of Christ I may have cause to glory because I did not run in vain or toil in vain.

Philippians 2:1-16


The end of all things is at hand; therefore, be of sound judgment and sober spirit for the purpose of prayer. Above all, keep fervent in your love for one another, because love covers a multitude of sins. Be hospitable to one another without complaint. As each one has received a special gift, employ it in serving one another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God. Whoever speaks, let him speak, as it were, the utterances of God; whoever serves, let him do so as by the strength which God supplies; so that in all things God may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom belongs the glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen.

1 Peter 4:7-11

Many crochet patterns are basic, in the sense that each new row/round is formed by crocheting the new stitches into the stitches of the "working row"... meaning into the stitches of the row/round you just completed.

Some more advanced patterns will have you crochet into a stitch "one row below", "two rows below", etc.
This means is you crochet into the indicated stitch(es) on a row other than the "working row".

For instance, say you have a crochet fabric that is 5 rows of all double crochet stitches and the instruction for row 6 states you are to ch3, turn, and then work 4dc into the next 4sts. You would work these stitches into the "working row". Lets say the next part of the instruction says to work a dc into the next st "two rows below". This means you look at the next stitch on the working row and then count down two rows below that, which would have you work the dc into the next st on the third row down.

This can be a bit confusing, however, working into stitches on rows other than the traditional "working row" gives your project a beautiful texture.

RE: I LOVE Your Dishcloth Pattern!


I just HAD to let you know how much I LOVE your dishcloth pattern: I found it through Pinterest: It is the first dishcloth I have ever crocheted and I love the fact that when I’m finished....I’m finished! No edging to to do! The pattern looks complicated, but actually is so easy. I don’t know how you ever came up with it to produce such a nice finished look.

I have pinned a lot of dishcloth patterns in anticipation of making them. However, I doubt that many of them will ever be used because your pattern is so easy and pretty. Thank you so much for sharing it.

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 police officer stopped a motorist for failing to come to a full stop at a stop sign and proceeded to give him a ticket.

The motorist protested, "Don't I get a warning?"

The officer replied, "Sure. If you don't come to a complete stop next time, you'll get another ticket."


Six-year old Angie and her four-year old brother, Joel, were sitting together in church. Joel giggled, sang and talked out loud.

Finally, his big sister had had enough. "You're not supposed to talk out loud in church."

"Why? Who's going to stop me?" Joel asked.

Angie pointed to the back of the church and said,"See those two men standing by the door?

They're hushers."

Heard over a public address system:

Will the person who lost the roll of $100 bills tied with a rubber band please come to the office.
We've found the rubber band.


My friend's four boys were young and bursting with energy, especially in church. But the sermon her minister preached on "turning the other cheek" got
their undivided attention. The minister stressed that no matter what others do to us, we should never try to "get even."

That afternoon the youngest boy came into the house crying. Between sobs he told his mother he had kicked one of his brothers, who had kicked him in

"I'm sorry you're hurt," his mother said. "But you shouldn't go around kicking people."

To which the tearful child replied, "But the preacher said he isn't supposed to kick me back."


Because my mother had a habit of losing her cordless phone, I bought her a phone with a clip on it so she could attach it directly to her belt.
A few days later, I walked into my mother's home and found her standing in the middle of the living room, halfway dressed. That did not strike me as odd so much as the fact that she was holding her pants to the side of her head and speaking into them.

"Do not look at me that way!" she yelled. "The phone started ringing and I couldn't figure out how to undo this stupid clip!"

A wife asks her husband, "Could you please go shopping for me and buy one gallon of milk, and if they have eggs, get 6."

A short time later the husband returns home with 6 cartons of milk. The wife asked him, "Why did you buy 6 gallons of milk?"

He replied, "They had eggs."


Morris and his wife Sherry were planning a vacation.

They ended up in an argument, "It's pronounced 'Hawaii', I'm telling you!" Sherry said.

"I never KNEW someone so stubborn! 'Havaii' is how it's pronounced!" he replied.

And so it went, all the way to the vacation...

As they got off the airplane, they passed by a man. Morris abruptly stopped his wife and turned to the man to ask,
"Now that we're on the island, you can settle an argument between my wife and me. Is this 'Hawaii' or 'Havaii?' "

"This is Havaii," the man replied.

"Ha!" the husband gloated to his wife. "See, didn't I tell you never to argue with me?"

As they began to walk away, Morris turned back and gave the man a hearty "Thank you!"

"You're Velcome!" he called back.

AT THE OCEANA, VA. Naval Air Station, I was training a young ground-crew member on how to direct an F-14 into the fuel pit. I glanced over to check wing clearance and, when I looked back, discovered that he had taxied the aircraft too far forward for the fuel hose to reach.

"You'll have to send him around again," I informed the trainee.

"What?" he said, surprised.

"They spend millions on these things and you can't put them in reverse?"

The new family in the neighborhood overslept, and their six-year-old daughter missed her school bus. The father, though late for work, said he would drive her if she'd direct him to the school.

They rode several blocks before she told him to turn the first time. Several blocks later she told him to turn again. After 20 minutes of turn after turn, they finally reached the school. At that point, the father realized they were only a few blocks from their home. Extremely annoyed, he asked his daughter why she had led him around in such circles.

"But, daddy," the child protested, "that's the way the school bus goes, and it's the only way I know."


During a tour at the Arizona Sonora Desert Museum, a New York City woman mentioned that she was raising a type of cactus in a pot on
her apartment balcony.

Another tourist asked her how she kept from watering it too much, because the cactus would die if over watered.

"I subscribe to the Tucson newspaper," replied the New Yorker. "Every time I read that it rained in the desert, I give my plant some water."

When my husband visited our son, Michael, at boot camp, he found him marching smartly with his unit.

Michael's father proudly approached the soldiers and began to snap photo after photo. Embarrassed and worried about getting into trouble, Michael looked straight ahead and didn't change his expression.

Suddenly his drill sergeant barked, "Comito, give me 25 push-ups. And the next time your daddy wants your picture, you smile!"
