I always wanted to stitch the church covered in snow that said, “Silent Night,” from Stoney Creek. When I first saw it, I was teaching and had a little one to boot. I knew I’d never finish it, so I didn’t bother buying the pattern or the materials. (My mom also assured me I’d go blind stitching on black!) Now that I’m retired, and despite the fact that now I watch my little one’s little one, I’m back into cross-stitching. I decided to see if I could find that old pattern, and I did, on eBay! I just paid for it! It’s in Washington State, so it should be here in a week or so! ‘Gotta get busy on my gazebo in the snow so I can start that one when it gets here!
Once upon a time, I had a student named David. Like myself, he had the gift of gab! What a talker! He also had a gift that I wish I had, a beautiful singing voice. Sometimes in the middle of class, he would just blurt out, “Mrs. Hartzog, why don’t we all just sing!” and break into song!
Today, I’m home, sick, and turned on the TV for some “church.” Charles Stanley was on, but I decided to check the local cable channel. Sure enough, there was my boy, David, in the pulpit, introducing his song, “Great is Thy Faithfulness!” It was beautiful!
David’s gifts have come together in his life like velvet and silk, and I’m so proud of him!
