New Historical Pattern For Girls

Mrs. Chancey's new pattern for girls is out. I have put in my order and awaiting the delivery. I am sure Miss Olivia is in need of many new dresses since she has grown so much over the summer. I am hoping to make this new pattern a well loved staple for her wardrobe.

I am dreaming up all kinds of garments to make with this pattern. I always have to think 'outside' the 'pattern envelop'. :)

I Need Thee Every Hour

When people in positions of authority and in particular, spiritual authority, choose to abandon Godly principles for ulterior motives and bring unspeakable pain and injury to God's sheep, the cries to God are deep. Betrayal brings pain and indescribable grief!

I am grateful God hears the prayers of his injured sheep!

Comfort and Strength in Song

You Raise Me Up
