Sorry, ladies, I have been a blaxer. I have had things to do. I'm speed crocheting trying to get an afghan done before Samantha goes to a wedding next weekend in Minneapolis. I don't think I'm going to get finished though. I've also been transfixed by the events going on in the Middle East. I just can't seem to stop watching it and my heart has been broken by the pictures I've seen there.
The next thing I wanted to tell you about is something incredible that was found in Ireland in a bog (mud). A Medieval copy of the Book of Psalms was found there by a construction worker. It has been tested and is over 1,200 years old! It is said to be like the equivalent to the Dead Sea Scrolls that had the book of Isaiah. What is so miraculous is that:
(A) It was found at all. (B) It was intact. (C) It was turned to the 83rd Psalm, and (D) It was found at this particular moment in history.
First read the 83rd Psalm and then go to this link and prepare to be in awe of our AWESOME GOD!

Next, when you see me in church you will notice something wrong with my left eye. It's got a huge blood spill in there. I don't know how it happened. I woke up on Thursday with it. It is a deep red and very obvious. It just has to fade away I guess. In the mean time Crochetmama Look-Alike and I no longer look alike. Next I need to go make an enchilada for tomorrow's pot luck.
Finally, I just have to share something that made me smile. I hope it makes you smile too; in fact, that is the name of this photo: SMILE ! SAY CHEESE !
Lots of Love, Crochetmama
