Er, ok

So, CNN is reporting an earthquake in the Indian Ocean which caused a tsunami. When I went to bed last night, Hizballah was threatening Galilee. I suggest we all turn to Matthew 24 and begin to read.

1 Then Jesus went out and departed from the temple, and His disciples came up to show Him the buildings of the temple. 2 And Jesus said to them, “Do you not see all these things? Assuredly, I say to you, not one stone shall be left here upon another, that shall not be thrown down.” 3 Now as He sat on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately, saying, “Tell us, when will these things be? And what will be the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the age?”

4 And Jesus answered and said to them: “Take heed that no one deceives you. 5 For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will deceive many. 6 And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all F131 these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. 7 For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences, F132 and earthquakes in various places. 8 All these are the beginning of sorrows. 9 Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and kill you, and you will be hated by all nations for My name’s sake. 10 And then many will be offended, will betray one another, and will hate one another. 11 Then many false prophets will rise up and deceive many. 12 And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold. 13 But he who endures to the end shall be saved. 14 And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come. 15 “Therefore when you see the ‘abomination of desolation,’ F133 spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place” (whoever reads, let him understand), 16 then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains. 17 Let him who is on the housetop not go down to take anything out of his house. 18 And let him who is in the field not go back to get his clothes. 19 But woe to those who are pregnant and to those who are nursing babies in those days! 20 And pray that your flight may not be in winter or on the Sabbath. 21 For then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be. 22 And unless those days were shortened, no flesh would be saved; but for the elect’s sake those days will be shortened. 23 Then if anyone says to you, ‘Look, here is the Christ!’ or ‘There!’ do not believe it. 24 For false christs and false prophets will rise and show great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect. 25 See, I have told you beforehand. 26 Therefore if they say to you, ‘Look, He is in the desert!’ do not go out; or ‘Look, He is in the inner rooms!’ do not believe it. 27 For as the lightning comes from the east and flashes to the west, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. 28 For wherever the carcass is, there the eagles will be gathered together. 29 “Immediately after the tribulation of those days the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light; the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken. 30 Then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. 31 And He will send His angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they will gather together His elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.

If there comes a pig into Jerusalem, watch out!

Blinded

I have been blinded by a red-neck, and I just have to blog this moment. There is a grown man in my neighbor’s yard, pulling on a tree which someone else is cutting. The man has no shirt on. His beer belly flops over the front, and *fully TWO inches* of butt crack is hanging in the breeze in the back. Seriously, can he not feel the wind on his tush?? Please, man, some of us walk outside. My kids are due home any minute. Cover yourself! Crack Kills!

Meeting Lorna’s Laces

DD#1 got home around 5am. She had Lorna’s Laces with her. Now, I had waited up for her, so please understand, I mighta been a little slap happy. I had never seen LL in person before, and I was looking at it (ok, drooling on it) deciding if there was any (haha) I wanted to order for myself. At some point, she said “just take it” (she did not mean it), and this is what happened:

Yes, it’s true, nothing makes me happier than stuffing yarn in my pants. I think I had 20 skeins in there. And, yes, there were several colorways that struck my fancy.

If you are a Christian looking for work, or a church/ministry looking to hire like-minded people, check this site out. In business since 2001 they have both job listings and resumes. You can search by denomination as well as location, church size and several other factors.

Leftovers

Several days ago, I asked about sock yarn leftovers. I think I have the answer now. Since I have a shortage of knitting projects, I may just start it today. It will be a long term thing, of course, just like the one I am doing in worsted weight. I am ok with that.

Work on the sweater yoke will continue today. I find that I can not work on it while I pump anymore, because it’s too big since I put all the pieces together. OTOH, pumping is a good time to work on socks :)

Too Cute

Ok, I know you’ve all seen cute before. But somethings just beg to be blogged about,even if you do get paid for it. I hit the PayParPost site, and saw this opportunity, and I love quotes. I really love quotes about babies. These 2 really hit the nail on the head today:

There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies Winston Churchill

Adam and Eve had many advantages but the principle one was that they escaped teething. Mark Twain

There are so many other ones on the baby page. And there are pages for Christians, inspiration, motivation, gardening, mothers, and more. Go. Pick your favorite topic. Read. Smile.

How Dissappointing!

I just started the second of the lace rounds in my sweater yoke. I did NOT get to decrease! But next time, I get to whack out 60 stitches!

Computer Tutor?

http://electronics.newbie.org

Have I mentioned I am HTML challenged? Well, it’s true. Anytime I want to add a new thing to the sidebar, I have to copy something that works, then erase and paste the new stuff in. And Carla handles all the HTML for HSY.
I had hoped to find some help at http://www.newbie.org/html/index.html. They told me how to build a webpage, but not how to change fonts, or use colors, or any of that stuff that makes a page more interesting. This site says it’s basic, and it lives up to it’s word.

You can find a few reviews there of different electronics and computers. The site seems to be pretty new, and I hope it gets better. I did find a mis-spelling or two, not that I want to be a grammar nazi or anything, but, you know, just saying.
