“You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you, that you may be sons of your Father in heaven; for He makes His sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust. For if you love those who love you, what reward have you? Do not even the tax collectors do the same? And if you greet your brethren only, what do you do more than others? Do not even the tax collectors do so? Therefore you shall be perfect, just as your Father in heaven is perfect. Matthew 5:43-48

A Little Valentine Stitching
I put away the winter smalls and took out my Valentine smalls. The sweet, little, red heart box that Peggy made me last year was tucked in there. I decided I would like to stitch a little something for the top of that box.I had this pretty,little floral freebie sitting in my stash for a while. I am sorry I do not have a link for you. Sometimes I forget to jot that down when I print them off.
I know the Chicken Soup For The Soul books are nothing new. But we have two different versions of them that we own. I read the first, original version at the end of last year. I just read the Christian Teen Talk version. I really find those books uplifting, ya know? And they are good to read more than once, especially if it has been a few years.
I finished listening to On The Banks Of Plum Creek and By The Shores Of Silver Lake. I am enjoying every, single one of these books in the series. =)
Here is another picture of the poodles sunning themselves. This time they are chewing rawhide bones. Yes, Mabel is chewing her bone while lying on her back. ;)
Stitching and praying,
