March, March, March.........

Goodness! March has marched right in! I think the first day of the month always jolts me! I am never ready for it. But here it is...........ready or not!
This weekend, I had lots of knitting time. Michael and I drove to NE AR to see my mom. Thursday was her b-day. She turned 71. We look her out to lunch and then, she and I, went shopping at the mall. We did not buy anything, but looking is free and fun. Michael did find himself a really nice sports jacket and I found him two dress shirts.
I finished a few more of my designs for my book. I am working on the last 4 designs. I have 3 of them on needles.I just love progress.
Here is a picture of my Traveling Shawl. I am reknitting this in some lovely Kidsilk Haze. I have added a crystal bead in the center of the diamond for a little bling. It will be really lovely when it is blocked, very wispy and delicate looking. This yarn is a bit of a challenge to knit with, but it is worth the effort. 
I get the daily devotion of this website everyday. This is the one for the day. It gives you a lot of food for thought.
Another favorite quote from the book, Knowledge of the Holy by AW Tozer.
" The man who comes to a right belief about God is relieved of ten thousand temporal problems, for he sees at once that these have to do with matters which at the most cannot concern him for very long; but even if the multiple burdens of time may be lifted from him, the one mighty single burden of eternity begins to press down upon him with a weight more crushing than all the woes of the world piled one upon another. That mighty burden is his obligation to God. It includes an instant and lifelong duty to love God with every power of mind and soul, to obey Him perfectly, and to worship Him acceptable. And when the man's laboring conscience tells him that he has done none of these things, but has from childhood been guilty of foul revolt against the Majesty in the heaven, the inner pressure of self-accusation may become too heavy to bear."
In light of that, Matt 11:28-30 says:
28Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 29Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”
