Friday Block Party

This week's block, Hearth and Home, was nice and straightforward, although I couldn't make up my mind what colour combination to go for. In the end I found a bag of two and a half inch scraps left over from another project which worked a treat. I enjoyed using the white on white printed fabric and it sews nicely too.


I asked God for strength,
that I might achieve,

I was made weak to humbly obey.

I asked for health,
that I might
do greater things,

I was given infirmity
that I might
do better things.

I asked for riches,
that I might be happy,
I was given poverty,
that I might be wise.

I asked for power,
that I might have
the praise of men,
I was given weakness,
that I might feel
the need of God.

I asked for all things,
that I might enjoy life,
I was given life,
that I might
enjoy all things.

I got nothing
that I asked for -
but everything
I had hoped for.

Almost despite myself,
my unspoken prayers
were answered.

I am among all men
most richly blessed.
