"Since my youth, O God, you have taught me..."

"...and to this day I declare your marvelous deeds. Even when I am old and gray, do not forsake me, O God, till I declare your power to the next generation, your might to all who are to come." Psalms 71:17-18
Aren't these the perfect verses? Here I am, "old and gray", well not exactly gray...but anyway, the old part fits! This has been a better day, not much nausea. I started learning to may take a while. It has no relationship to sewing or weaving, or even knitting that I used to do. I will have to practice a bunch! I want to get out in the garden, but it is way too hot to try to plant anything...103 today. Garden centers have big sales but I would not try to move anything right now. This yard has several areas that are like "blank canvasses" and I want so badly to "paint" on them! Several friends and family I have given plants to are offering cuttings back and that will be so nice to get back some of my favorite plants. Our son and daughter in law will bring lots this fall also. So I just can't wait for lots to do--just bide my time.
Our care group from church will meet in the park Sunday night and if it is not too hot that will be a good time. Two more groups are meeting with us. Then Monday is the chemo day. If I can learn the basic stitch of crocheting by then, that will help fill that 12 hour day. "do not forsake me, O God..."
