RE: Stethoscope Cover
Thank you so much for the stethoscope cover pattern. It is the perfect gift for a friend of mine. She is married and they have 5 children. She felt that the Lord was calling her to become a nurse. She graduated last month from nursing school. I made 2 covers and will be giving them to my friend at church on July 10.

“[Jesus] plan called for action,
and how He expressed it predicted its success.
He didn't say "you *might* be my witnesses,"
or "you *could* be my witnesses,"
or even "you *should* be my witnesses."
He said "you *will* be my witnesses.”

~~ Charles R. Swindoll ~~

"And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in the whole world for a witness to all the nations, and then the end shall come."

Matthew 24:14


But the eleven disciples proceeded to Galilee, to the mountain which Jesus had designated. And when they saw Him, they worshiped Him; but some were doubtful. And Jesus came up and spoke to them, saying, "All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.

Matthew 28:16-20

And the Father who sent Me, He has borne witness of Me. You have neither heard His voice at any time, nor seen His form. And you do not have His word abiding in you, for you do not believe Him whom He sent.

John 5:37-38

The first account I composed, Theophilus, about all that Jesus began to do and teach, until the day when He was taken up, after He had by the Holy Spirit given orders to the apostles whom He had chosen. To these He also presented Himself alive, after His suffering, by many convincing proofs, appearing to them over a period of forty days, and speaking of the things concerning the kingdom of God. And gathering them together, He commanded them not to leave Jerusalem, but to wait for what the Father had promised. "Which," He said, "you heard of from Me; for John baptized with water, but you shall be baptized with the Holy Spirit not many days from now." And so when they had come together, they were asking Him, saying, "Lord, is it at this time You are restoring the kingdom to Israel?" He said to them, "It is not for you to know times or epochs which the Father has fixed by His own authority; but you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be My witnesses both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and even to the remotest part of the earth."

Acts 1:1-8

And opening his mouth, Peter said: "I most certainly understand now that God is not one to show partiality, but in every nation the man who fears Him and does what is right, is welcome to Him. The word which He sent to the sons of Israel, preaching peace through Jesus Christ (He is Lord of all)-- you yourselves know the thing which took place throughout all Judea, starting from Galilee, after the baptism which John proclaimed. You know of Jesus of Nazareth, how God anointed Him with the Holy Spirit and with power, and how He went about doing good, and healing all who were oppressed by the devil; for God was with Him. And we are witnesses of all the things He did both in the land of the Jews and in Jerusalem. And they also put Him to death by hanging Him on a cross. God raised Him up on the third day, and granted that He should become visible not to all the people, but to witnesses who were chosen beforehand by God, that is, to us, who ate and drank with Him after He arose from the dead. And He ordered us to preach to the people, and solemnly to testify that this is the One who has been appointed by God as Judge of the living and the dead. Of Him all the prophets bear witness that through His name everyone who believes in Him receives forgiveness of sins."

Acts 10:34-43







According to Acts, who baptized with water?

The standard popcorn stitch is worked as follows:
Work 5 double crochets in the chain or stitch indicated.

Drop the loop from the hook.
Insert the hook in the top of the first double crochet of the 5-dc group.
Pick up the dropped loop.
Draw through the stitch.

Now you can "pop" the popcorn to the right or wrong side of the work as needed.

When working in the round it can be difficult to see where a round begins/ends.
Get in the habit of using stitch markers to mark the first stitch of each new round.
It takes a few seconds to move it as you work new rounds but you can definitely keep track of your rounds better. You can use purchased markers but a length of contrasting color yarn works just as well.

RE: ReadAPattern

Would u please decode the following for me.
Rnd 2: ch 1, 6x2 sc, join round with a sl st in the starting chain (=12 sc)


<< Reply >>

If you had 6 stitches on Round 1...
I believe the designer wants you to chain 1 and then work two single crochet
stitches in each of the next 6 stitches. Join with a slip stitch in the
starting chain.
You should have 12 single crochet stitches when you finish the round.

Thank you very much, that makes more sense.

Re: Stitch_Question

Hi, I wondered if I could replace the puff stitches with a bobble stitches using the same graph for the crochet alphabet blanket??


<< Reply >>

The single crochet puff stitch works well with the height of the single crochet row.
As long as the bobble you use is comparable in size/height it should work fine.
If the bobble is too tall it could distort the afghan.

The Incident - True story about how God works

This is about my Father In Law, James Hamblin.
We asked for and received prayer from many of our crochet family after his accident and during his recovery process. For those who do not know, James fell in October causing multiple injuries which took months to overcome. He is home now and doing well.

This is his story!

A young preacher was asked by the local funeral director to hold a grave-side burial service at a small local cemetery for someone with no family or friends. The preacher started early but quickly got himself lost, making several wrong turns.

Eventually, a half-hour late, he saw a backhoe and its crew, but the hearse was nowhere in sight, and the workmen were eating lunch.

The diligent young pastor went to the open grave and found the vault lid already in place.

Taking out his book, he read the service. Feeling guilty because of his tardiness, he preached an impassioned and lengthy service, sending the deceased to the great beyond in style.

As he was returning to his car, he overheard one of the workmen say: "I've been putting in septic tanks for twenty years and I ain't never seen anything like that."


The door of the science office at my high school opens outward, and a number of students have been whacked by it. To prevent any more mishaps, one of the teachers stuck a warning on the door advising people not to stand too close. There was also a comic strip attached showing a student being hit by a door being opened.

One day I was pushing a cart into the hall and opened the door extra wide. To my horror the door struck a student standing outside.

After determining that he was all right, I asked why he was behind the door even though the warning was there.

"I was reading it," he replied.


We were doing a science lesson on how plants grow. The children

all got a chance to plant their own seeds.

After a few days of watching the seedlings, I secretly exchanged

a few seeds for the children whose plants did not sprout.

Several days later one of my students said: "Look Mrs. Gilligan,

it's a miracle, my plant is growing".

I said: "Yes, seeds sprouting is very exciting".

He said: "No Mrs. Gilligan, that's not the miracle, I ATE the

SEED and it is growing anyway!"



A pastor of a two-church parish had to drive every Sunday

morning about four miles from the 9:30 service at one church

to the 11 o'clock at the other. He would often find the parking

lot of the second church full, and he would be forced to park

down the road and race to the church on foot.

The problem was finally solved when he selected a parking

spot near the side door of the church and posted a sign that

read, "You Park - You Preach."


One day a teacher told her students to draw a train on a
railroad track for homework. The next day when the teacher
started checking everybody's book, she came up to Janice.
"Show me the homework".

Janice showed the teacher her notebook with only a picture
of railroad tracks.

The teacher asked,"Where is the train?"

Janice then replied, "You were late so the train went away."


The telephone rings in the principal's office at
a school.

"Hello, this is Dunn Elementary," answers the

"Hi. Jimmy won't be able to come to school all next
week," replies the voice.

"Well, what seems to be the problem with him?"

We are all going on a family vacation," says the voice,
"I hope it is all right."

"I guess that would be fine," says the principal. "May
I ask who is calling?"

"Sure. This is my father!"

The other day while driving home, after being delayed at my office, I suddenly saw flashing lights in my rearview mirror.

The police officer pulled me over for speeding. Hoping for a little leniency I explained to him that I was rushing home to be with my wife on our first anniversary.

But rather than letting me off with just a warning, he went ahead and wrote out the ticket, handed it to me, and said, "Congratulations! The first year is paper, right?"


A: I have the perfect son.
B: Does he smoke?
A: No, he doesn't.
B: Does he drink whiskey?
A: No, he doesn't.
B: Does he ever come home late?
A: No, he doesn't.
B: I guess you really do have the perfect son. How old is he?
A: He will be six months old next Wednesday


As the little boy climbed onto Santa's lap, Santa
asked the usual question: "And what would you like
for Christmas?"

The child stared at him open-mouthed, horrified,
and then gasped, "Didn't you get my Snapchat?"


A young ensign had nearly completed his first overseas tour of
sea duty when he was given an opportunity to display his ability
at getting the ship under way. With a stream of crisp commands,
he had the decks buzzing with men. The ship steamed out of the
channel and soon the port was far behind.

The ensign's efficiency has been remarkable. In fact, the deck
was a buzz with talk that he had set a new record for getting
a destroyer under way. The ensign glowed at his accomplishment
and was not all surprised when another seaman approached him
with a message from the captain.

He was, however, a bit surprised to find that it was a radio
message, and he was even more surprised when he read, "My per-
sonal congratulations upon completing your underway preparation
exercise according to the book and with amazing speed. In your
haste, however, you have overlooked one of the unwritten rules.
Make sure the Captain is aboard before getting under way!"


We've always tried to instill in our children God's desire
that they respect and obey their parents.

One morning, following an evening of explaining the Golden
Rule to my preschool daughter, Katie, I quizzed her. "What's
the Golden Rule?" I asked.

With a look of exasperation she replied, "I know, I know.
You're the mommy!"



An English teacher rolled through a stop sign and was pulled
over by a police officer -- a former student!

"Ms. Brown," he said, "those stop signs are periods, not commas."
