“Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that.
Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that.”
.~~ Martin Luther King Jr.,
A Testament of Hope:
The Essential Writings and Speeches .~~


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


But when the Pharisees heard that He had put the Sadducees to silence, they gathered themselves together. And one of them, a lawyer, asked Him a question, testing Him, "Teacher, which is the great commandment in the Law?" And He said to him, " 'YOU SHALL LOVE THE LORD YOUR GOD WITH ALL YOUR HEART, AND WITH ALL YOUR SOUL, AND WITH ALL YOUR MIND.' This is the great and foremost commandment. The second is like it, 'YOU SHALL LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF.' On these two commandments depend the whole Law and the Prophets."

Matthew 22:34-40

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


When therefore he had gone out, Jesus said, "Now is the Son of Man glorified, and God is glorified in Him; if God is glorified in Him, God will also glorify Him in Himself, and will glorify Him immediately. Little children, I am with you a little while longer. You shall seek Me; and as I said to the Jews, I now say to you also, 'Where I am going, you cannot come.' A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another, even as I have loved you, that you also love one another. By this all men will know that you ae My disciples, if you have love for one another.

John 13:31-35

If I give all I possess to the poor and surrender my body to the flames, but have not love, I gain nothing. Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away.

1 Corinthians 13:3-8


Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God; and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God. The one who does not love does not know God, for God is love. By this the love of God was manifested in us, that God has sent His only begotten Son into the world so that we might live through Him. In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins. Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. No one has beheld God at any time, if we love one another, God abides in us, and His love is perfected in us. By this we know that we abide in Him and He in us, because He has given us of His Spirit. And we have beheld and bear witness that the Father has sent the Son to be the Savior of the world. Whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son of God, God abides in him, and he in God. And we have come to know and have believed the love which God has for us. God is love, and the one who abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him. By this, love is perfected with us, that we may have confidence in the day of judgment; because as He is, so also are we in this world. There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves punishment, and the one who fears is not perfected in love. We love, because He first loved us. If someone says, "I love God," and hates his brother, he is a liar; for the one who does not love his brother whom he has seen, cannot love God whom he has not seen. And this commandment we have from Him, that the one who loves God should love his brother also.

RE: Stitch_Question

Good Afternoon: I was looking at your Christmas Tree Afghan Square Pattern and I have just a small question.
Do you cut your yarn when changing the colors in each row?

Thank you.
Leona Sellyeh

<< Reply >>

I do not cut yarn when making any of the row count patterns.
Thanks for asking.


RE: Dog_Bandana

Thank you for your pattern! Love the texture. I made it for my sister’s new puppy and plan on making another. I don’t like making long chains, so I used a foundation sc instead and then followed your pattern. Came out great!

Happy hooking,

Re: ReadAPattern

Crocheting afghan - what does ch 4 ( counts as dc, ch 1) mean?

Jo Ann

<< Reply >>

Each double crochet stitch equal to the height of 3 chains;
therefore, the four chains will be the same as one double crochet stitch plus one chain stitch.


Re: Emma's Booties crochet directions

Hello I made the booties tonight. or rather I tried to make them I got the sole, heel and toe done then found out the upper top part of the Bootie is missing the directions. it ends with the 4 ch stitch. No directions for the ruffled part of the bootie.
Can you help . thank you
Caro Kent

<< Reply >>

The ruffled part along the top edge of the bootie is formed during R7 of the HEEL.
The heel and toe of this bootie are not joined until the Finishing section.
The ribbon is weaved through the holes on R5 of the Heel and the ch4 loops
on each side of the toe then drawn up and tied in a bow.
This joins them.

Oh thank you sooo much! I saw this on another video but they didn't do a close up just talked thru it. Wasn't very understandable to me. Now seeing this video this will be the stitch I do. Kudos 



Re: Round_Casserole_Carrier

I just tried to make your round casserole carrier, because I thought it would be a good quick project to sell at the craft fair. My carrier looks NOTHING like yours! Your picture seems to have a cover on it, there are no instructions for a cover.
When following your instructions for the increases, the whole piece starts to ruffle. I frogged that and increases my way, resulting in a flat bottom. But, the piece is barely 31/2 in. across the bottom. Way too small for even my smallest casserole dish.

Also, after the row of just sc in the one loop, you don’t say whether to continue that way for the remaining rows or go back to sc under both loops. I did it under both loops and barely have a 1 in. wall.

The picture also looks like it has a cover, and there aren’t any instructions listed for a cover.

Hope you’ll be able to help me. I may have just read everything wrong.



<< Reply >>

The Round Casserole Carrier pattern is worked holding six strands of yarn together throughout the pattern. The first 8 rounds are the main part of the carrier, then the handles are added.
There is no cover for this pattern and you only work into the back loop when indicated.

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.

The story is told of ten-year-old Johnny, who rushes home from school one day. He invades the fridge and is scooping out some cherry vanilla ice cream when his mother enters the kitchen.

She says, "Put that away, Johnny. You can't have ice cream now. It's too close to supper time. Go outside and play."

Johnny whimpers and says, "There's no one to play with."

Trying to pacify him, she says, "OK. I'll play with you. What do you want to play?"

He says, "I wanna play Mommy and Daddy."

To appease him, she says, "Fine, I'll play. What do I do?"

Johnny says, "You go in the living room and sit down."

Mom goes into the living room. Johnny, feeling a bit bold, swaggers down the hall and opens the utility closet. He dons his father's old fishing hat and overcoat. He goes into the living room, sits down, picks up the remote and starts changing channels.

His mother says, "What do I do now?"

In a gruff manner, Johnny says, "Go in the kitchen and get that kid some ice cream!"

A client recently brought her two cats in to my husband's veterinary clinic for their annual checkup. One was a small-framed, round tiger-striped tabby, while the other was a long, sleek black cat.

She watched closely as I put each on the scale. "They weigh about the same," I told her.

"That proves it!" she exclaimed. "Black does make you look slimmer. And stripes make you look fat."


The young man ahead of my father at the flower shop was taking an unusually long time to place his order. When the clerk asked how she could help, he explained that his girlfriend was turning 19 and he couldn't decide whether to give her a dozen roses or 19 roses -- one for each year of her life.

The woman put aside her business judgment and advised, "She may be your 19-year-old girlfriend now, but someday she could be your 50-year-old wife."

The young man bought a dozen roses.


Two old friends met one day after many years. One attended college, and now was very successful. The other had not attended college and never had much ambition.

The successful one said, "How has everything been going with you?"

"Well, one day I opened the Bible at random, and dropped my finger on a word and it was oil. So, I invested in oil, and boy, did the oil wells gush.

Then another day I dropped my finger on another word and it was gold. So, I invested in gold and those mines really produced. Now, I'm as rich as Rockefeller."

The successful friend was so impressed that he rushed to his hotel, grabbed a Gideon Bible, flipped it open, and dropped his finger on a page.

He opened his eyes and his finger rested on the words, "Chapter Eleven."


A new man is brought into Prison Cell 102. Already there is a long-time resident, who looks a hundred years old. The new man looks at the old-timer inquiringly.

The old-timer says, "Look at me. I'm old and worn out. You'd never believe that I used to live the life of Riley. I wintered on the Riviera, had a boat, four fine cars, the most beautiful women, and I ate in all the best restaurants of France."

The new man asked, "What happened?"

"One day Riley, reported his credit cards missing!


On his birthday, my husband was stuck driving our six
rambunctious children around.

As usual, they were yelling, punching, and annoying one
another. Joel finally had had enough.

"Kids," he said over the din, "if you would behave and
be kind to each other, that would be a very nice birthday
present for me."

Our six-year-old shot back: "Too late, I already got you
another present."


I arrived home physically exhausted and noticed our car was not in the driveway. As I pulled up, 15-year-old
Brad ran out to greet me.

Annoyed that the children had been left alone, I asked,
"Where's your father?"

"In the house," Brad answered.

My voice rising in panic, I screeched, "Well where’s the car?"

Brad looked at me in disbelief. "You're in it!"


I'm not much of a gift wrapper, especially compared with the women who work at our shop. But I was the only one available the day a customer wanted a gift wrapped for his mother.

"Sorry," I said, handing back a box covered with wrinkled, oddly taped paper. "It's wrapped, but it sure looks like an amateur did it."

“Great," he said happily. "Now my mom will think I did it myself."


As a professor at St. Cloud State University in Minnesota,
I often engage women psychology majors in heated discussions
about male-female relationships.

Once, my friend Shelly and I got into a hot debate about
whether men or women make the larger sacrifice of their
respective gender characteristics when they get married.

To my surprise, Shelly agreed with me that men give up
far more than women.

"You're right, Steve," she said. "Men generally give up
doing the cleaning, the cooking, their grocery shopping,
the laundry...."

An archaeologist was digging in the Negev Desert in Israel
and came upon a casket containing a mummy, a rather rare
occurrence in Israel, to say the least.

After examining it, he called the curator of the Israel museum
in Jerusalem.

"I've just discovered a 3,000 year old mummy of a man who died
of heart failure!" the excited scientist exclaimed.

To which the curator replied, "Bring him in. We'll check it out."

A week later, the amazed curator called the archaeologist. "You
were right about both the mummy's age and cause of death. How in
the world did you know?"

"Easy. There was a piece of paper in his hand that said, '10,000
Shekels on Goliath.'"


When my daughter was three, we watched Snow White and
The Seven Dwarfs for the first time. The wicked queen
appeared, disguised as an old lady selling apples, and
my daughter was spellbound.

Then Snow White took a bite of the poisoned apple and
fell to the ground unconscious. As the apple rolled away,
my daughter spoke up. "See, Mom. She doesn't like the
skin either."
