One of the characteristics of a woman who is leading a victorious Christian life is virtue. A virtuous woman is willing to conform to both moral and divine law, someone who glows with purity and goodness. Sounds like an overwhelming goal, doesn't it? Well, just like everything else in our lives, God has given us exactly what we need to triumph in the virtues He would have us attain. "And now, my daughter, fear not; I will do to thee all that thou requirest: for all the city of my people doth know that thou art a virtuous woman" (Ruth 3:11). Ruth was a poor widow, one who chose to leave her native Moab for her mother-in-law's home town of Bethlehem. She was given the choice to stay behind, but her relationship with Naomi was more important. Ruth was devoted to both her former family and the new family that would greet them (Ruth 4:15).

This card table recover project has been on my to-do list for months. I've been using it as my workspace in the craft room for quite some time, and it sees a lot of abuse. Here it is now, with a neutral cover on it so I can take better pictures for my tutorials. There were dents and dings in the old blue covering from metal tools. And yes, I've used my embossing heat tool on it several times, leaving pretty good scars.

First, don't do this on any surface but a carpet. I tried it on the deck int he sunshine to get better pictures, but all it did was tear up the cover.

My sweet and loving husband gave me my birthday present three weeks early. I had asked Danny for a bench that I could put down by the big pond. I wanted a place where I could go, pray and relax away from the struggles of the day. He blessed my heart in so many ways by creating this bench out of landscaping timbers with his own two hands. His talents amaze me all the time. But what meant even more was that he was willing to brave 110 degree temperatures to finish this just for me. That speaks volumes about the loving heart of this wonderful man. Thank you, Sweetie! I'm so excited to get it down by the water and spend some time with the Lord. The first thing I want to do is thank Him from the bottom of my heart for the husband He gave me. I'm blessed beyond measure.
