For this reason I tell you: When you pray and ask for something, believe that you have received it and you will be given whatever you ask for. And when you stand and pray, forgive anything you may have against anyone, so that your Father in heaven will for give the wrongs you have done.
Mark 11: 24-25, Good News Bible

Before the world was created, the Word already existed; he was with God, and he was the same as God. From the very beginning the Word was with God. Through him God made all things; not one thing in all creation was made without him. The Word was the source of life, and this life brought light to mankind. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has never put it out.
John 1: 1-5, Good News Bible

It is wonderful to be feeling better. For weeks, the day after Thanksgiving to be exact, I had been wondering what was going on with me. I was so weak. I could hardly walk to the kitchen to get a cup of hot tea without being exhausted--could not even pick up a needle to do a little creative quilting. Then a week ago I sat down, because I was tired, fell asleep. When I woke I felt worst than when I first sat down. Something was wrong. Hubby was out of town, so called my son. He took me to an Urgent Care. I had pneumonia. I'm still taking the medications prescribed and finally these last couple of days my stamina is coming back. I have been told by my doctor--to still take it easy for about two more weeks--that will be 2017. I will do as the doctor says--this was very scary. Stitching has returned too. Working on a baby quilt for a friend and I have two quilts to bind for church. Our Christmas decorations are very slim this year. Just the mantle and holiday dishes will adorn the table. That is all I had the strength to do, but that is OK. The season is so much more than decorations. Wishing you an enjoyable week as the holiday approaches and as always Happy Quilting!

May you always be joyful in your union with the Lord. I say it again: rejoice!
Show a gentle attitude toward everyone. The Lord is coming soon.
Don't worry about anything, but in all your prayers ask God for what you need, always asking him with a thankful heart.
And God's peace which is far beyond human understanding, will keep your hearts and minds safe in union with Christ Jesus.
Philippians 4: 4-7, Good News Bible
