What a lovely poem Jeanne... I love Easter and the promise of new hope!

How this world needs to find that hope today... and I am just finishing and preparing to send 4 navy blue scarves.

Comment by P. Jeanne Haessler on March 30, 2015 at 10:30am

I am finishing up navy scarf no. 7 however I will then join the April challenge and do some squares. The navy scarves I send now won't get there in time for the end of April anyways but Ronda has asked for them throughout the year to stockpile for next year so I will continue to make some but I do want to focus on the little orphans who don't even have school uniforms and make for them first.  The navy scarf is optional. I recommend it as worthwhile if you have time and energy for it but the AIDS/HIV orphans are our first and greatest cause. i am hoping to hear of many knitting kits given out by the drug company.  We shall see.

Meanwhile I wish to leave this poem with you, by Ida Norton Minson:

Twilight.  And on a dusty beribboned way,

Out from Jerusalem, two travelers walked.

Gray shadows touched their feet, but deeper lay

The shadows in their hearts.  They softly talked

Of days just passed, of hopeless days in view,

Of boats, of nets, the while their eyes were dim;

Of Galilee, the work they used to do,

Their voices often stilled, remembering Him.

A stranger also walked that way, and when

They sensed his nearness, some new sympathy

Assuaged their grief.  Old hopes came warm again

As, in the dusk, he kept them company...

Thus, through the troubled twilight of today

Emmaus road has stretched its shining thread

And still Christ walks beside men on the way,

To hold the light of hope, to break the bread.

I am doing loom knitting as the scarves work up faster for me. I can get 3 1/2 scarves out of two balls of Red Heart Super Saver in Soft Navy, so that's a cost of about $7.80. Not bad and they're lightweight so ship cheaply.

In other news I am reading a Chicken Soup For the Soul book called Touched by an Angel and is it ever good.  Here's quote from it: "God not only sends special angels into our lives, but sometimes He even sends them back again if we forget to take notes the first time!"...Eileen Freeman.   I do believe in angels, seen or unseen, sometimes in very human form, sometimes earthbound angels. :)

IMPORTANT NOTE RE: THE NAVY BLUE SCARF PROJECT

This is a really important project for KAS and will benefit the cold school children.

Here's the Link to the Blue Scarf Project discussion. You will find all the details about scarf requirements and WHY we are doing this in the introduction

http://forum.knit-a-square.com/forum/topics/special-report-the-navy...

Pam is doing a "Totaliser" in the intro, so once a month when we hear from Ronda how many scarves have arrived, Pam will update it For every 10 scarves she will use a scarf symbol. Every time we reach 50, she will post a school bus.

The current number of scarves to arrive is 44 - we are close to getting our first bus!

The benefit KAS receives in having their mail picked up and delivered to the offices by the pharmaceutical company and in addition the monetary help in rent money are both real advantages for KAS. In return, we need to get on board and support KAS by making and donating the navy scarves

Please post photos of your scarves in the discussion and in Photos - we have an album started

Love and Greetings to all at KAS!  I just found this wonderful quote:

“Retracing More’s life taught me a valuable lesson:

that no act done in faith will ever truly perish.” 

Written by:  Karen Swallow Prior, regarding Hannah More (1745 to 1833) who worked for the poor, to help others and to abolish slavery.  I saw it in the article at:

Thank you for the inspiring messages Jeanne.  Prayers are with you for good health.  Blessings everyone.  Love to all at KAS.  Let's make this a wonderful month for the children - just one extra little bit for them.

Thank you Susan

Comment by Susan Haines on January 27, 2015 at 11:08am

Welcome Francine.  Our little church groups sometimes is quite active and other times rather slow.  It's filled with like-minded gals though, and I;'m sure you'll find us all quite friendly and loving.  I'm from Nashville, TN.   I attend OASIS Church and also am a BSF group leader.  (Bible Study Fellowship)

Comment by Grace Weir on January 27, 2015 at 8:59am

Welcome Francine... delighted that you have joined us on the Church Group.

You will soon get to know us and I am sure feel at home here.  God bless.
