“ The same Jesus Who turned water into wine can transform your home,
your life, your family, and your future.
He is still in the miracle-working business,
and His business is the business of transformation. ”

~ Adrian Rogers ~

Now there was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews; this man came to Him by night, and said to Him, "Rabbi, we know that You have come from God as a teacher; for no one can do these signs that You do unless God is with him." Jesus answered and said to him, "Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God." Nicodemus said to Him, "How can a man be born when he is old? He cannot enter a second time into his mother's womb and be born, can he?" Jesus answered, "truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Do not marvel that I said to you, 'You must be born again,' The wind blows where it wishes and you hear the sound of it, but do not know where it comes from and where it is going; so is everone who is born of the Spirit." Nicodemus answered and said to Him, "How can these things be?" Jesus answered and said to him, "Are you the teacher of Israel, and do not understand these things? Truly, truly, I say to you, we speak that which we know, and bear witness of that which we have seen; and you do not receive our witness. If I told you earthly things and you do not believe, how shall you believe if I tell you heavenly things? And no one has ascended into heaven, but He who descended from heaven, even the Son of Man. And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up; that whoever believes may in Him have eternal life. For God so loved the world, that he gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have eternal life. For God did not send the son into the world to judge the world, but that the world should be saved through Him. He who believes in Him is not judged; he who does not believe has been judged already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. And this is the judgment, that the light is come into the world, and men loved the darkness rather than the light; for their deeds were evil. For everyone who does evil hates the light, and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed. But he who practices the truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be manifested as having been wrought in God."

John 3:1-21

Now on the last day, the great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried out, saying, "If any man is thirsty, let him come to Me and drink. He who believes in Me, as the Scripture said, From his innermost being shall flow rivers of living water.'" But this He spoke of the Spirit, whom those who belived in Him were to received; for the Spirit was not yet given, because Jesus was not yet glorified.

John 7:37-39

Again therefore Jesus spoke to them, saying, "I am the light of the world; he who follows Me shall not walk in the darkness, but shall have the light of life." The Pharisees therefore said to Him, "You are bearing witness of Yourself; Your witness is not true." Jesus answered and said to them, "Even if I bear witness of Myself, My witness is true; for I know where I came from, and where I am going; but you do not know where I come from, or where I am going. You people judge according to the flesh; I am not judging anyone. But even if I do judge, My judgment is true; for I am not alone in it, but I and He who send Me. Even in your law it has been written, that the testimony of two men is true. I am He who bears witness of Myself, and the Father who sent Me bears witness of Me."

John 8:12-18

Re: How to Crochet - Row Count Pattern/Color Changes - Part 1


Thumbs up for the shortcut technique of making the slipknot.
Do you have some video with explanations of how to read this "source code" for patterns?
I mean the shortcut notation: what do all these shortcuts mean?
I already know some stitches, but now I'd like to know how to read and write the code.


I have a list of stitch abbreviations and instructions on my website under "crochet basics".

RE: How to Crochet - Single Crochet Stitch


The video quality is a bit low, so not everything is clearly visible.
Fortunately I somehow managed to follow your instructions.
One thing I couldn't understand and I had to figure out myself after
watching several videos is why do you skip one loop at the beginning.
I guess it'd be good to explain that this loop is meant to move you
up one unit to the next row above. And when you're already there,
you don't need to skip any more loops in the subsequent stitches.


I'll keep your comments in mind for future videos.

The number of chains that you skip when beginning a crochet row depends on the height of the stitch you use to begin that row.

Single Srochet = one chain
Half Double Crochet = two chains
Double Crochet = three chains
Treble Crochet = four chains

To begin subsequent rows you make the number of chains to equal the height of the first stitch used.

Re: How to Crochet : Reverse Half Double Crochet


Thank you for an easy to understand lesson on this stitch. It is new to me, although I've crocheted quite a bit. I'm making a little bag that calls for this stitch. She had written instructions on how to do it, but your video makes it crystal clear. Thank you.



Re: About your dishcloth

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 5-year-old boy mistakenly stepped into the women's dressing room at the health club. Women screamed and grabbed their towels.

The little one asked, "What's the matter? Haven't you ever seen a kid before?"


One morning, as I was hurrying to get
ready for work, my five- year-old son,
Jamie, was crying that his pet poodle,
Percy, had got out of the houseand was
running towards the highway.

Percy loved riding in the car, so I told
Jamie to go out to the carport and open
the car door, and Percy would come back.

"No, he won't!" he sobbed. "He knows I
can't drive that car!"


I try to be creative at disguising obvious gifts
when wrapping Christmas presents.

One year I bought a video for my four-year-old
son, and not wanting him to guess what it was,
I put it in a cereal box, wrapped it and put it
under the tree.

Christmas morning he tore off the paper, let
out a whoop and exclaimed, "Look, Mom, I got


A guy is 81 years old and loves to fish. He was sitting in
his boat the other day when he heard a voice say, "Pick me

He looked around! and couldn't see any one. He thought he
was dreaming when he heard the voice say again, "Pick me up."
He looked in the water and there, floating on the top, was a

The man said, "Are you talking to me?"

The frog said, "Yes, I'm talking to you. Pick me up. Then,
kiss me and I'll turn into the most beautiful woman you have
ever seen."

The man looked at the frog for a short time, reached over,
picked it up carefully, and placed it in his front breast

Then the frog said, "What, are you nuts? Didn't you hear
what I said? I said kiss me and I will become the most
beautiful woman you've ever seen!"

He opened his pocket, looked at the frog and said, "Nah, at
my age I'd rather have a talking frog."


Grandpa tells of the time his six-year-old grandson found
a penny and proudly showed it to his grandmother.

"What's so great about finding a penny?" she asked. "You
can't buy anything with it."

"Yes you can," he said. "You can buy a dream in a wishing


A major was assigned to a new office on a
military base. While he worked to set up
his office, a private knocked on the door.
The major quickly picked up the phone and
motioned for the private to enter.

On the phone the major said, "Yes, General
Schwarzkopf, I think that is an excellent
idea. . . . No sir, that's fine, you feel
free to call me any time. I'm glad I can
help. . . . Yes sir, I will, and you give
my best to your family as well. Thank you,
sir, and a good day to you too, General

As the major hung up the phone he turned to
the private and asked, "What can I do for you,

Sheepishly, the private mumbled, "Um, sir,
I'm just here to hook up your phone."


The computer in my high school classroom recently
started acting up. After watching me struggle with
it, one of my students came up and took over.

"Your hard drive crashed," he said.

I called the computer services office and explained,
"My computer is down. The hard drive crashed."

"We can't just send people down on your say-so. How
do you know that's the problem?"

"A student told me," I answered.

"We'll send someone over right away."


A husband and wife were involved in a petty argument, both
of them unwilling to admit they might be in error.

"I'll admit I'm wrong," the wife told her husband in a
conciliatory attempt, "if you'll admit I'm right."

He agreed and, like a gentleman, insisted she go first.

"I'm wrong," she said.

With a twinkle in his eye, he responded, "You're right!"



The loaded mini-van pulled into a campsite. Four children
leaped from the vehicle and began feverishly unloading gear
and setting up the tent. The boys rushed to gather firewood,
while the girls and their mother set up the camp stove and
cooking utensils.

A nearby camper marveled to the youngsters' father, "That,
sir, is some display of teamwork."

The father replied, "I have a system: no one goes to the
bathroom until the camp is set up."


Customer gets a topical cream. Directions: Apply locally
two times a day.

Customer says to the pharmacist: "I can't apply locally;

During my husband's time as an older student, we
didn't have much money for our family of seven.

At a friend's wedding, my four-year-old daughter
was sitting next to me when the minister asked,
"Do you take this man for better or worse, for
richer or poorer, in sickness and in health?”

Our daughter turned to me and whispered loudly,
"You chose poorer, didn't you Mommy?”
