Women have been gathering to fellowship over hand work for generations. Whether it was quilting, knitting, or any other creative venture there was usually some sort of warm drink, a cookie, laughter and supportive friendship involved. This night was no different. Women of all ages gathered to share in the love of being industrious and creative, and of having time to simply be together.

My great Redeemer's praise,
The glories of my God and King,
The triumphs of his grace!
My Gracious Master and my God,
Assist me to proclaim,
To spread through all the earth abroad
The honors of thy name.
Jesus! The name that charms our fears,
That bids our sorrows cease;
Tis music in the sinner's ears,
Tis life, and health and peace.
He breaks the power of canceled sin,
He sets the prisoner free;
His blood can make the foulest clean;
His blood availed for me.
He speaks, and listening to his voice,
New life the dead receive;
The mournful, broken hearts rejoice,
The humble poor believe
Hear him, ye deaf; His praise, ye dumb,
Your loosened tongues emplo9y;
Ye blind, behold your Savior come,
And leap, ye lame, for joy.
In Christ, your head, you then shall know,
Shall feel your sins forgiven;
Anticipate your heaven below,
And own that love is heaven.
Longing for a thousand tongues........to use for singing praise to the God who has redeemed me from my sin, and of his glories, and the triumphs of his grace.........I don't often enough, use the one I have. J.

In late July our dear friend Dawn married Bill at the baseball field in Port Angeles, where they met. He coached her daughter Dove in softball. It was a gorgeous day, and the bleachers were packed.
His players lined the 3rd base line with bats held high as Bear(newly home from Afghanistan) walked his mother down the "aisle."
After the wedding we HAD to stop at the Lavender farm on our way out of Sequim. It's just what we do every chance we get. Hannah loves to "shoot" there. At one point she said... "Quit taking pictures of me!" I responded "You take pictures of what you want to take pictures of, and let me take pictures of what I want to take pictures of!"
