He Lives!




"What praises can we offer

To thank thee, Lord most high?

In our place thou didst suffer;

In out place thou didst die,

By heaven's plan appointed,

To ransom us, our King.

O Jesus, the annointed,

To thee our love we bring!"

 

~ O Savior, Thou Who Wearest a Crown, K.L. Davidson

 

 

Happy Easter!

Crochet, Cancer, and the Cause!

As you may know, October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month!

Being in the business of making hats, I've have the pleasure to make several over the years for beautiful women who have been diagnosed with breast (or other) cancers. The thing that I've always taken away from these opportunities, is how amazing and strong these women are. So brave and courageous.
