Psalms 20

The Lord answer you in the day of trouble!
The name of the God of Jacob protect you!
May he send you help from the sanctuary, and give you support from Zion!
May he remember all your offerings, and reward with favor your burnt sacrifices! Selah
May he grant you your heart's desire, and fulfil all your plans!
May we shout for joy over your victory, and in the name of our God set up our banners!
May the Lord fulfil all your petitions!

Now I know that the Lord will help his anointed;
he will answer him from his holy heaven with mighty victories by his right hand.
Some boast of chariots, and some of horses; but we will boast of the name of the Lord our God.
They will collapse and fall; but we shall rise and stand upright.
Give victory to the king, O Lord; answer us when we call.

Psalms 64

1 Hear my voice, O God, in my complaint; preserve my life from dread of the enemy, hide me from the secret plots of the wicked, from the scheming of evildoers, who whet their tongues like swords, who aim bitter words like arrows, shooting from ambush at the blameless, shooting at him suddenly and without fear.
5They hold fast to their evil purpose; they talk of laying snares secretly, thinking, "Who can see us? Who can search out our crimes? We have thought out a cunningly conceived plot." For the inward mind and heart of a man are deep!
7But God will shoot his arrow at them; they will be wounded suddenly. Because of their tongue he will bring them to ruin; all who see them will wag their heads. Then all men will fear; they will tell what God has wrought, and ponder what he has done.
10Let the righteous rejoice in the Lord, and take refuge in him! Let all the upright in heart glory!
King James Version

Fruit Salad

Reading "When Life Gives You Pears" by Jeannie Gaffigan.  Throughout my life I tend to gravitate to the stories of those who are overcomers for their inspiration on how to get over the inevitable hurtles we must face in this journey of life.
I am enjoying this book as I have her husband Jim Gaffigan's book "Dad Is Fat", during our family trip to The Grand Canyon via Amtrak. There was a lengthy layover due to the weather washing out some track and then the cargo trains taking first priority. It gave me time to enjoy Jim's humor. SO thankful for good clean humor!!!
No matter what type fruit life sends us might as well make fruit salad! lol
Here is a recipe I hope to try this season:
1 jar (25 oz) chunky applesauce
1 can (21 oz) cherry pie filling
1 can (20 oz) pineapple chunks, undrained
1 can (15-1/4 oz) sliced peaches, undrained
1 can (15-1/4 oz) apricot halves, undrained
1 can (15 oz) mandarin oranges, undrained
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Place the first six ingredients in a 5-qt. slow cooker and stir gently.  Combine brown sugar and cinnamon; sprinkle over fruit mixture.  Cover and cook on low for 3-4 hours.  Yield: 16 servings.

Aaaaand here we are again!  Norm and I delivered 12 blankets and 6 onesies to our local Newborns In Need this past Saturday.  I am currently working on some Santa/elf hats full term and preemie sizes.  They are so cute!
After they are finished I have quite a bit of strips to knit up to make woven balls to send to Relief Share. To break things up there are some Barbie clothes to be made too. They can be used to raise funds for Relief Share as well.
Hope all is well with you!  October will be here before long and that usually means cooler weather. Love to see the changing colors this time of year.
That's all for now. 
God bless!
