You have it already.Love beyond your wildest dreams.
You should not keep God’s laws and seek to do good because you
are begging for His love, or trying to win an A+ in the game of life.
Keeping His laws and seeking to do good is simply responding
to His love.It’s how you love Him back.It’s part of your relationship.
Yes, doing those things are to your benefit, and no, you
don’t get to stop just because you don’t feel loving some days.But striving to please God in order to
deserve His love is silly.You’ll never
deserve love so amazing.So instead
rejoice in the miracle that that love is yours already.
Fringe and Tassel, Lincoln's most famous costume shop, is going out of business and they are selling all of their costumes. They are open from 11am-5:30pm, and 10-2 (or sold out) on Saturday.
We had great fun shopping, although nothing is priced and so all sales are negotiated. Most of the clothing is well worn, so check it carefully. I enjoyed browsing, and of course, I had to try a few things on....
Yesterday, we added our very first bag of blanched, skinless tomatoes to the freezer, where it will wait for either:
1. enough tomatoes to join it until we have no room in the freezer and have to can
2. we'll thaw it months from now and get a taste of summer in December.
I wish I had taken a picture of this tomato when it was still orange because it looked just like a pumpkin.
The fashion design part of 4-H was always my favorite. Well, not the actual sewing. Just the design and modeling parts.
Here are some fun clothes made by 4-H members, all from the county fair a few weeks ago.
Now what is the name of that artist? This dress has some cool swirls inspired by him:
This dress is actually made of patchwork. I've always wanted to try that. I presume that you just sew patchwork shapes to match the pattern pieces. It would be a ton of work to do it so carefully that the pieces lay flat.
This just looks like fun.
Grandma Vlasta made Czech dresses like these for Mom and her sisters to do Czech dancing in, and also made matching dresses for their dolls.
This year might be over, but maybe some pix will persuade you to go next year...
Fun with fairy gardens!
Mom said she didn't realize that the type of plant actually bloomed.
I think these are melted tools. So cool!
It is difficult to capture without a video, but this lovely llama was positively preening for the camera! She seemly to think her neck was a particularly fine one, and she was flirtatiously tossing her head--seriously!
