We Press On

     Such a rainy dreary day! Buckets of rain are pouring down here in the Midwest. My son had a makeup baseball game today - for a tournament game that was supposed to be played yesterday. I don't know how it happened, but they managed to get it in between the buckets. The outcome was a loss, though. The good news is that he was able to play at multiple positions! He has been a catcher forever - and a very good one. Being very good, one can get cornered into that position all year long, without learning the valuable lessons that playing other positions bring. Today he played short, second base and tried his hand at pitching - and did fabulous! The Lord has blessed him with ability and a true love for the game. Perhaps that is the most important thing of all. He has had a busy week - with eight grade graduation on Thursday evening  Boo hoo... my baby! I can not truly feel somber because each and every new milestone brings joy! All the way to adulthood.

I will be posting the Alpha Stripe Dishcloth pattern very soon. I hope to have it up by Monday evening - but it is possible that it will be a tad bit later than that. Keep checking in!

 

Be joyful and keep pressing on, even though you may feel like giving up! Hand it to Him! He is there to carry on.

"I am the vine, you are the branches; he who abides in Me and I in him, he bears much fruit, for apart from Me you can do nothing.

John 15:5

Hi, I followed your link from Dishcloth KAL where I am a very new member. Love your dishcloths and the colours. I have bought a ball of variegated blue cotton, and am ready to start, but just had the thought that my printer isn't working! I will have to pick an easy pattern and write it down.
