Some changes

Okay, many years ago, my mother-in-law wouldn't buy me any more books, because I wouldn't read the ones I had, or it was more like I'd start one and then get excited about another one, and have 4 or 5 books going at the same time. Now, the only difference is, I can't seem to finish a knitting project without starting another one. By the way, I did manage to conquer the book thing. So, I guess I can do the same with knitting. Started on the fingerless mitts, got one done, then I went to baby mitts, and then to Christmas ornaments(don't ask :)). I think you get the idea.
Anyway, like the title of today's post indicates, I have some new things. I know, pics are coming, I promise. However, as I was on the phone with my mom, I got linked into my brothers family blogspot. You will see it to the right. They have 10 great kids, and please visit their blog, its a little better than mine, maybe I can solicite some help from my neice. After all, I did teach two of them to knit ....Hint, Hint. We have a lot of fun when we are together, which isn't often enough, but they are a fun family, as you'll see from their blog.
Started my Precept class Tuesday night!! We are studying the book of Ruth and Kinsman Redeemer. Have all the work done already, so I am anxious for the discussion next week, b/c I am a little confused. I think its probably the times of the culture. Ok, what am I confused about? One of the questions that stumped me, is on Ruth 3, where she goes to Boaz on the threshing floor. Question is, what was she doing? What was she wanting from Boaz? I think I know, but a few verses before that Boaz states that she is a woman of noble character, so my confusion is, is what she did okay for noble women of the day? or am I so confused by our bad culture, that I am reading something into it? Hope this has been clear as mud. Sorry.

Hi. Just wanted to let you know that the link to us is wrong...should be and "a" instead of an "o". Bunchahicks. :)

I've heard something about the Ruth thing. I'll have to see if I can find it. Will let you know soon.

Hey, I'd love to help you with anything you need. Though I'm still trying to figure out some things myself. :)

See you soon!

P.S.
Liberty is doing great on her knitting and I'm going to start working on the little bib pattern you gave me. Thanks!!!

Hi again!

I think I have found what you need! By laying at Boaz feet, Ruth was showing that she was in complete submission to him. Boaz is a picture of Christ, and she is completely putting her fate in his hands.

The story of Ruth and Boaz is the most romantic love story in the Bible.

Hope this helps!

Hi, have you figured out how to work the pictures on here yet? It would be great to see you all, even if it is through pictures.

Well, good luck!
