Making Slippers to Matthew (NIV)

I have been working since 8:40 (ish). It is now 9:52. I have gotten this far on Katie’s slippers…

I have also finished my first CD of the New Testament – Matthew 1-11 – and was struck by several things. Matt 5:14-16 “You are the light of the world… let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your father in Heaven.”  It is easy to worship in private, to keep your Christian life separate from your outside appearance… But what good is that? What sort of faith is that? Jesus calls us to be fishers of men, and to be the light of the world, drawing others to His glory. When we are separate our selves from our God, we are like the salt that has lost its saltiness (Mt13), good for nothing but being thrown out. It is in doing God’s works, and living our lives to His Glory, that others can see His beauty shining within us, and only then can we share His works and His truths.

hmmmmm….. Back to knitting, and a can of diet coke…

    I’m eating lunch now, Marce. Pasta with sauce I made this fall with leftover garden tomatoes! It is so so good. I have quite a few containers, if you want some as a base for any pasta dish.
