Ok, now I can sit down and have a “virtual chat” with you. As I’m writing this, the peaceful music at Elijah Stream Internet Radio is playing in my ear. Tonight our daughters Heather and Leah and I had a “knitting party.”  I told Heather that it was my first one ever. 🙂

Heather is making scarves and hats as gifts for Christmas. Between working full-time as a teacher for a pre-school, parenting her two adorable girls Annabelle and Violet,  and household chores, Heather is having a hard time getting all her knitting projects completed by next Friday…so she decided she just needed to come to our house for us to have some “focused knitting time,” lol.

Leah just finished knitting a hat and wrist warmers, and is now working on a scarf. This week I am knitting a hat and tonight I worked on a scarf. We knit using the Knifty Knitter. It’s easy, relaxing, and fun.

As I shared with you this week, I just got back from my trip to Valdosta, Georgia, for my sister Maria’s college graduation. With God’s daily grace and help, Maria attended college full-time, while being a single mom of 3 kids, working full-time as a bookkeeper, and made dean’s list each semester. I am so proud of her! She is now enrolled in the masters’ program in psychology, which will take her about two years to complete.

Whenever I hear people say, “I can’t do that!”, I think of my sister and say to them, “Oh yes, you can! Look at what my sister just did!”

Have you heard the expression, Can’t never could?  When you are tempted to think I can’t, remember the story The Little Engine that Could. The little steam engine thought as he went up the steep hill (which looked impossible to climb), “I think I can, I think I can!”  and he did it.

With God’s help, you can do it! Nothing is impossible with God.

What looks impossible to you right now? What do you feel you can’t do? What dream do you have in your heart that you wonder if it will ever come true? Remember the little engine. Remember my sister Maria. You can do it! I am here cheering you on.
