Whom have I in heaven but You?
And there is none upon earth that I desire besides You.
My flesh and my heart fail;

But God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever. Psalm 73:25-26

A Thank You Gift For Me

Good Morning Friends! I hope it is a beautiful day by you. =) I received something beautiful in the mail yesterday all the way from South Africa. Yup that's right. It is from our dear Cucki. I had gifted Cucki with the pattern Whatsoever Your Hands Findeth To Do. Here is the beautiful card that she made me.
I told you it was beautiful! The time it must have taken to make that. I just love it. I do! And look at this wonderful, little doily she made me. I have never received a gift like this. I do not know how to crochet. I really cherish this gift Cucki. Thank you for your gifts. You are so kind. You are a very good friend.
Jacob's party was a success. We did have cool weather though. Or perfect Shirlee weather! Our family is not made of wimps thank goodness! We had a tent set up with the drinks and overflow of food.
 I did finish the book The Story Tellers' Collection by Melody Carlson. What a great book! It is a collection of short stories by Christian authors. What a wide variety offered. I found so many new authors now.

Our Mabel continues to hold on. Not very well though friends. I left a message for the vet yesterday asking what meds can we increase or change? He sent the message back on two to increase. We are to give this new regiment a few days to see if it will improve life for her. If not, well, then it will be the end of our time with our dear, sweet Mabel. We continue our prayers in this. We love her so much, but if this does not work, she will not continue on in suffering.

Hoping and Praying,
Vickie

So glad your party went off nicely. If chilly. Better chilly than stinking hot though. At least for me - I don't like hot. :)

Carol said...

I'm so sorry Mabel continues to struggle, Vicky. Perhaps the change in meds will give her some relief--poor little thing...

Such a pretty card and doily from sweet Cucki--don't you love how stitching makes the world seem just a bit smaller?

Congratulations to Jacob! I know his future will be bright!
