Did I Show You This?

I don’t think I showed you these old time souvenir
pillow covers I bought before we left the Yukon.
On our last trip to Beaver Creek, I insisted we stop
at this little ‘hole in the wall’ shop I’d seen on the
curve near the  Koidern River. It was so fun. The place was built in 1969 and I feel certain no improvements had been made since then! The older couple running it were real, authentic Yukoners, for sure.
I have the t-shirts all separated for the g’children and ready to pack for when I make my trip to visit
all of them.

You may have noticed there are only six shirts and we have eight g’kids. That’s because I bought three of the boys the same eagle shirt. It has nine ‘hidden’ eagles in the print. I think they’ll get a real kick out of hunting for them.

I would like to say that I’m completely unpacked, but as you can see I’m still working on it! This bag is full of summer clothes I thought I would put in storage, but it was so hot earlier this week I had to dig into it to get a cooler top. Believe me, I’m not complaining about that.
But that was Mon-Wed. And after two days of pouring rain, this is what’s been happening here
at the cabin. My, how quickly things can change! I’m not disheartened though, because I know that we still have our Indian summer to look forward to yet.
I don’t know about you, but these last few days have been a real challenge for me, with all of the events that have transpired in the Middle East. I’ve had to
remember to leave my worries at the ‘foot of the cross’. I’m sharing with you
two verses that come to my mind when I begin to feel burdened with lifes many cares. Please read them if you’re so inclined.
Psalm 55:22  Cast your cares on the Lord
and he will sustain you;
he will never let the righteous fall.
1 Peter 5:7  Cast all your anxiety on Him
because He cares for you.
I won’t write out all of Ephesians 6:10-18, but it is our protection and our strength.
May you have a good and blessed weekend my friends-Kimberly

  10. The pillows are wonderful! Great find!Thanks for the Scripture verses – I was so disheartened by the murders in Libya and the ongoing protests.What ever possessed that man to make such an inflammatory film. And what possesses the people who are protesting, that they would resort to such violence. Evil is a strong force, but our God is stronger.


  11. Oh, the shirts are perfect for those grandchildren. I hope you bought some for yourselves.I too, am going leave my worries at the “foot of the cross” and continue to pray.Thank you for your thoughts.


  12. I am so glad you brought home some treasures from the Yukon. They look like stuff I remember seeing when I was a kid. You are going on a 3 day Military diet? I would be feeling a bit mad too. I hate dieting so much now. Well glad to see you are getting caught up there at home.


  13. What a find! I LOVE those old souvenir pillows especially from the Yukon with mounties on them! You scored big time! The kids will love those shirts too. It's Fall…even here! I am enjoying every bit of it.I love your red gingham shams on your bed…did you make those? They're darling!I know what you mean about “troubles”….they're everywhere. When I've done all I can do I just pray for the rest and lately for peace, love and tolerance both here and abroad.
