Pictorial Tuesday Link Up 4 17 18 'n Being Crafty





Happy Pictorial Tuesday....Sharing these dish towels and hot pads that I made for my girls. Love going to the fabric store, and saw these fabrics and especially like the strawberry jam one so knew had to purchase. Crafting keeps me busy. These were fun to make and so easy. I like easy. haha
I may have to return and purchase the strawberry one to make me another apron. :) Who doesn't love having a full apron to put on when baking? Usually though, I forget and mine just hangs on the hook. ~smiles~

I've crocheted since a very young girl, but am now learning to knit. I've been practicing the stitches, but have just recently finished a hat from a pattern.


My current project is working on a cable scarf. I'll share it later. It's finally coming along. I've torn out a few times and had to restart, but finally it is looking like cables. I discovered The Casting On Couch whose tutorials on YouTube are excellent for anyone wanting to learn knitting. She also has some free patterns on her site. 

Pop over HERE to see some of my craft projects from over the years. Picture pillows make excellent gift ideas.


Now it's time for your sharing of your photography/graphics. Pictorial Tuesday link up is live from Tuesday until Friday each week. Thanks for visiting and sharing. Comments are always adored. :)

Mercy Life In The Season of Dying Book Review


MERCY LIFE IN THE SEASON OF DYING
Author: Peter Roebbelen
Publisher: Paraclete Press


"We are all born powerless and we all die powerless."

The author uses that phrase, but his book recounts the many ways people do have power over how they perceive and face dying. But more so, his book is about how family and loved ones can celebrate the life shared. He shares how there is life in dying. In his book, he shares some intimate stories of his life as a pastor and the times he's been privileged more by the joy shared and strength of those to whom he's ministered. He shares their stories.

In this book, the author broaches a subject from which most shy away. But with his sharing, there are some important points we may not have considered. It may not be a subject most are looking to read about, but the insights shared are worth the read.

The author writes in an easy flowing manner as he shares each story, and makes for wanting to head on to the next chapter.

Basically, this isn't a book that I might have chosen as a read. But once I started the book, I read on with anticipation of the stories he was sharing, and what needed information could be garnered from the stories. Without spoilers, I'll just say give Mercy a try. It may be a surprise subject matter that touches your heart more than you'd expect.

A Note About The Author:
Peter Roebbelen has been in pastoral ministry for over thirty years and has befriended and cared for many in their season of dying. He is the President of the Charis Foundation, a Christian organization desiring to see all people move from suffering to flourishing. Peter is a graduate of Tyndale University College and Seminary and Arrow Leadership. He and his wife, Sharon, live in Oakville, Ontario.

Note:
I received a copy of  MERCY LIFE IN THE SEASON OF DYING from the publisher. No review positive or otherwise was required. All review opinions are my own.

The reviews on my blog are specifically my own interpretation of my like or dislike for a book I read.

Pictorial Tuesday 4 10 18








As I sit here looking at flower pictures on this twenty-first day of Spring, it is snowing outside ~ again. It has snowed almost every day of Spring, and down in the 30's 40's. I saw where we now have a new term called Sprinter (Spring/Winter). Always someone with a gleeful outlook and comes up with a fun term for this dreary Spring. :) The weatherman has promised warm days are on the horizon by next week-end.

Have a great week, and thanks always for linking up and sharing your photography with Pictorial Tuesday.

Have a blessed Sunday. I hope all had a nice Easter and week full of blessings.
