~ Happy Friday ~

Nothing much happening around these parts. Its been pretty dull due to excessive toothaches. ;D I'm doing better and spending time reading, pondering and knitting. I'll be back next week w/updates on my "Spring Reading Thingy" since I've finished a book or two. I want to add some new quotes too and get back into the meme's I love so much.

Until then, have an awesome weekend!

Give Thanks to the Holy One,
Give Thanks cause He's given Jesus Christ,
His Son." (~ Don Moen)

1. my KTC swap partner ~ she sent such lovely gifts. you can read about it in a previous post.
2. my SP10 buddy ~ she sent me a gift set with a stitch markers, a pin and magnet. you can read about that over at my crafty
3. the internet ~ for the ability to meet such wonderful people and share with each no matter where we live.
4. ecards ~ for the ones I received from both my KTC and SP10 partners.
5. Lion Brand Co ~ they have awesome yarn and I just stumbled across their ecards which are art prints. I really like these.

Most of all, I am thankful for another opportunity to say "thank you" to all of those who make my life full, joyful and a pleasure to live. May the Lord richly bless all of you, even those of you I don't know yet. ;D

~ My Swap Package ~

Woohoo! I got my package from my KTC Swap partner. Yes sir, that there package was very nice, if I say so myself. Looka here, see all thats inside, then go on over and show some love to Pooch for being such a blessing. ;)

Books ~ Knit One, Kill Two & Unashamed

Goodie Bag ~ Stitch Counter, Christmas Stocking Point Protectors, Darning Needles w/case and Topaz colored Stitch Markers

Inside Book ~ Book Thong marker

Yarn Love ~ 16 oz of 100% Rayon in Green, Gold, Purple and ..... I'll take another pic once I wound it.

I am truly blessed and look forward to reading my books. I have both of these on my TBR list and K1K2 is ready for pickup at the library. LOL The stitch markers are special to me because they are my birthstone color. I had just been contemplating whether to buy the darning needle kit. Looks like I won't have to. Now that Book Thong ~ now thats something one doesn't see very often. Its great and I'm going to enjoy using it. ;D

Pooch, thank you very much for such lovely and thoughtful gifts. Have an awesome day!

~ Something to Think About ~

"Be careful for nothing; but in everything
by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving
let your requests be made know to God.
And the peace of God, which passeth all
understanding, shall keep your hearts
and minds through Christ Jesus."
Phil 4:6, 7

~In Other Words~

"At the heart of the story
stands the cross of Christ
where evil did its worst
and met its match."

Aren't you grateful for all He's done? I know I am.
Lord, thank you for the cross, for the sacrifice you made for me when I knew you not. I humbly surrender all to you, my King of Kings and Lord of Lords.
Thank Him for what He has done for you. Join us.
