Warmth and Loving Kindness All the Way From Norway
Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies.
She seeketh wool, and flax, and worketh willingly with her hands.
last week, at this time spring was in the air and bernie and i and the little red car were spotting robins all over the place..of course the grass is still a dull green but never-the-less, robins have returned from their long trip from florida and so that surely means it is spring, eh?
well, just this wednesday morning, southern ontario awoke to see that the idaho snow queen, who SHOULD have be changing into her spring finery and getting ready for her reign of idaho lilac princess, had dumped a huge pile of snow!! all over the place!..NOT nice!
that bernie fellow had to get out and do some clearing of snow from the little red car...and here he is retired for a year, and still having to work so hard and the little red car was just shivering!..NOT nice!
well, i was cold and shivering too inside our little white house but little did i know that mom ljung was sending me, all the way from norway, a warm gift....a homemade gift! and a lovely post card...so nice!
for sure and felisol's dear mom did come to the rescue.
here are some pictures of her knitting me a pair of warm stockings.
these kind hands..
took the time to make these beautiful, many coloured stockings..
for THESE cold feet!
and i must thank you so much dear norwegian lady who is serina's beloved gramma and kel and felisol's dearest mom and gunnar's sweet mother- in- law!
19She layeth her hands to the spindle, and her hands hold the distaff.
20She stretcheth out her hand to the poor; yea, she reacheth forth her hands to the needy.
21She is not afraid of the snow for her household: for all her household are clothed with scarlet.
22She maketh herself coverings of tapestry; her clothing is silk and purple.
you sent those stockings right in the nick of time, because even though bernie DID clean off the little red car, the roads were so bad, we did not venture out, but stayed snowed in, inside our little white house!
Thank you SO much...love terry
28Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her.
31Give her of the fruit of her hands; and let her own works praise her in the gates.
