God grant you the light in Christmas, which is faith;
the warmth of Christmas, which is love;
the radiance of Christmas, which is purity;
the righteousness of Christmas, which is justice;
the belief in Christmas, which is truth;
& all of Christmas, which is Christ.

What Am I Missing?

"We are ... perplexed, but not in despair;"
2 Corinthians 4:8
_____________________
I am majorly confused this morning.  I have seen a couple blog posts about IHSW being this weekend.  However, when I go to Joysze's site to sign up, there is no signup post for June.  The May signup post is still there.

IHSW or not, I plan to be stitching a lot this weekend.  Stitching & hopefully finishing.  I have 5 pinkeeps ready to stuff & close.  I'm not sure if I will be adding any trimming around the edges.  All of them are primitive so the plainer, the better.  

I keep looking at the photo I found to post above.  That girl looks to be maybe in her 20s?  She looks thin, has a nice head of hair, her face doesn't sag, she doesn't have a turkey neck, her arm skin isn't hanging down past her breasts, & you can actually see her breasts positioned above the table edge instead of lying in her lap.  If she was old, fat, balding, saggy, floppy, & had breasts that resembled wind chimes, we could be twins!

You always make me laugh, Shirlee. Is it IHSW this weekend? I didn't think so either.

hugs, Kaye

Techically this is the third Saturday of the month so it could be IHSw unless you consider the weekend to start on Friday, in which case it's not until next weekend.

Or just do both LOL.

Shirlee , it is what is inside that matters.
you are funny and you know we all love you.

Have you ever looked at your arms at night when you are reading a book I had a real shock very nasty.ha.

Yes it seems everything goes south. Inversion tables make you feel so young...until you stand up again.

You paint a very interesting picture my friend! I too have wind chimes. I never liked them. I prefer peace and quiet. :o)

I have been acting like this is IHSW but if it's not until next weekend then it will be just another excuse to sit and stitch some more! Yes, I think I like that idea very much.

Omgosh we could be twins too!! It doesn't matter what we look like outside God still loves us.. and what we have inside as believers is like gold!

I always giggle at your posts Shirlee.

Hope you got sorted with the IHSW. I haven't taken part this year so can't help and probably wouldn't be able to as I'd be as confused as you!

Michelle said...

Like Sally says I am not a part of it - it doesn't take a lot to get me confused so just as well I didn't. You so brighten my days xx
