Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself. Let each of you look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others. Philippians 2:3-4

Giveaway Winner

Hi friends! The winner of the Keep Me Sampler by Moira Blackburn is Annette! I have notified you in email Annette. It will be on it's way this week. :)

No stitching to show you today. I am working on a secret stitch right now. ;)
I read Queen of Hearts by Rhys Bowen. It is the newest in the Royal Spyness series. It was good. I would appreciate if the swearing disappeared. I don't think she needs to make every police officer swear, when  one appears in a story.

Brian bought me a rose. :) Just because. ♥
I am feeling a little frustrated. I finally get better with my leg, from the cancer surgery, and I can walk on the treadmill again. Then, after 3 days of walking, my hip pain on the left returns. And I walk slow! And only 10 minutes at a time to avoid the pain. And only 20 minutes a day total. sigh. I cannot exercise in other ways without pain, so I just want to walk. Man! Pain is the pits!!

I plan to have a restful Lord's Day today. Off to worship soon. I hope you have a beautiful day my friends! Thank you for stopping by to say hi! Don't forget, I have started a new giveaway. Take a look here.

Stitching and praying,
Vickie

Oh don't get me started on swearing in books. I don't know why authors feel the need to do this - it spoils it for me and I often don't continue a book if it's just too much.
