Cashmere Sweater

I finally got around to taking a photo of the sweater I made with my yarn from Christmas... it only took me two weeks to finish the sweater and maybe another two weeks to take a photo!

I have only worn it a few times. Once here at home and once at church. It is very soft and feels wonderful to wear!

The closures on the front are crocheted on. I have not learned button holes yet but, I actually like this look.

songs from my youth

I was reading an online Bible study that my Aunt writes and these lines stood out for me.

Remember, no matter how bleak things get, our God is loving and caring and Sovereign. He is in complete control. Like the song writer says, "We've come this far by faith - leaning on the Lord. Trusting in His holy Word - He's never failed us yet."

I remember singing this song in choir growing up. I think back on those old hymns and spirituals and realise that they are filled with God's truths and wisdom.

Living in Russia takes effort and there are days when I don't want to have to work so hard to understand and to speak. Yet, I know that even when I feel as if I cannot do this anymore, God is still in control. He has never failed me and I can look around and see just how far I have come by faith!
