Despite the extensive length of "stupid" that threatened to define my current status I have made a rather savvy discovery that has the potential to inspire ... Or hi-jack my knitting, depending on my ability to stay focused!
A few weeks back I made a rather "big girl" purchase .... I "invested" in an iPad. And since that time I have found a TON of "justifications" that could rival any of the reasons i've ever used for buying yarn and stashing it!
Needless to say, I am finding some inspiration to try knitting something other than my safe and predictable scarf.. And am scurrying around gathering coupons like a squirrel in frantic panic over an acorn! A simple cotton/acrylic blend would make a perfect spring/summer sleeveless shell ... Or add some sleeves ... Long or short ... I don't know, but I think I may be feeling a surge of "I think I can!" starting to well up ... (and did i mention that i got a coupon from Michael's that says 50% off your ENTIRE purchase Friday? )
I really like the fact that I can have my knitting patterns tucked discreetly in my purse, ready and bookmarked, not crumpled or missing a page. I can make notes and drawings as i go, just like a paper copy, and yet it will be forever stored for safe keeping. And while this technology seems to be such a new and technologically advanced "novel" idea, the ability for instant "recall" is nothing new. God has made Himself readily available since time began! And throughout the course of time He has given man the very Words of hope, and instruction, and correction and redemption.... Every scenario is covered ... Every instance, every reference, every ANYthing ...
it requires no internet connection and yet was the first 3G ... God - The Father, The Son and the Holy Ghost!
Yet I am always with you;
for the LORD your God goes with you;
