Ok, so yesterday’s post is a little late in coming. I was too busy doing what I was thankful for yesterday to write about it. Yesterday I was thinking how grateful I am for my two sisters, Maddie and Hannah. We were working on finishing up a puzzle, and didn’t get done with it until very late. I started working on the puzzle by myself, but they wanted to help, so I let them. At first, I didn’t think they would be much help since it was a 500 piece puzzle. I don’t usually do puzzles, because I used to think they were a waste of time, until my mom said they are educational. So I’m a bit out of practice, and they don’t do puzzles often either. But, contrary to what I had thought, they were actually a big help! Hannah would help by organizing the pieces by general color, and then by general shape. Then all three of us would work together to find pieces that would fit into the puzzle. It’s a Thomas Kinkade puzzle, and is very pretty once it’s finished! I started another Thomas Kinkade puzzle today…with the help of my sisters of course! It’s a 750 piece puzzle, but I’m sure I can do it with their help!
Maddie and Hannah are nine and six respectively. Sometimes they squabble, but you always see them together, and they have such different but neat personalities. Maddie is a bit quieter, and Hannah is the type that loves to talk. One of my favorite things to do with them is sing. The other day, we were singing “I’d Rather Have Jesus”. We had just gotten done singing the part “I’d rather have Jesus than anything this world affords today”, and Hannah asked “Really? Even more than yarn?” to which I laughed and replied “Yes, much more than yarn”. She’s so funny! Both of the girls love to do most anything I do. When I’m knitting, they always want to knit right beside me. Now, they have their own little stash of yarn, and some needles, and have projects going. Maddie just recently made me a scarf, and sewed my name on it with a contrasting color. Hannah also made me a necklace out of beads. They’re so sweet! I’m thankful that the Lord has blessed me with sisters like Maddie and Hannah.
Each little flow’r that opens up,
Each little bird that sings–
He made their glowing colors, and
He made their tiny wings.
The purple-headed mountain,
The river running by,
The sunset and the morning light
That brightens up the sky
All things bright and beautiful,
All creatures great and small,
And all things wise and wonderful–
The Lord God made them all
The cold wind in the winter-time,
The pleasant summer sun,
The ripe fruits in the garden now–
He made them every one.
He gave us eyes to see them all,
And lips that we might tell
How great is the Almighty God
Who has made all things well.
