Sisterly Things

Did you see I’m working on a new verse to memorize? Here it is–

Romans 14:2-3.

One person’s faith allows them to eat anything, but another, whose faith is weak, eats only vegetables. The one who eats everything must not treat with contempt the one who does not, and the one who does not eat everything must not judge the one who does, for God has accepted them.

#2 Sister in the Spess Family line up (Deb) has invited me to take part in an eight week getting-healthy-challenge she saw on Pinterest. It’s a weight loss doin’-my-bod’-good thing, posted by this sisterly blog.deb clown

Sister Debbie is the cute clown on the right. 🙂

Of course, Sister Deb has an unfair advantage. She’s a long time snacker of low cal things, such as stems and twigs.

Sister Deb told me she’s memorizing Bible verses twice a month, too. (Does she live a disciplined life or what?)

In honor of The Challenge, she chose a verse in one of the Peters. Now I would have joined her in memorizing that verse, but I couldn’t remember which one it was. (Obviously, it’s not just my verses I have trouble remembering. I’m an equal opportunity forgetter.)

Since I couldn’t remember her verse, I searched for one of my own. Turns out, Paul had some light to shed on my quest in Romans 14–especially verse three.

One person’s faith allows them to eat anything, but another, whose faith is weak, eats only vegetables. The one who eats everything must not treat with contempt the one who does not, and the one who does not eat everything must not judge the one who does, for God has accepted them. 

It’s telling the girlies who are good at healthy living (aka–dieting) not to gloat over those of us who aren’t. I’m going to need that verse! 🙂

BTW: Verse two is for #1 Son and his comment from my Confession Blog. *wink*

The Challenge is not a specific diet, so I’m up for any hints, tips or tricks that have worked for you in the past.

Anybody wanna share?

Kitty Snitting

Can you guess what I’m snitting (sitting and knitting) these days?

It’s a Christmas gift for DIL#1. Last Christmas. 🙂 I showed it to her on the big day and let her try it on. We decided it needed another foot of body before it’d be finished.

Now it’s about 8 feet long. 🙂 Oy.

It has four legs.

It has a tail.

Yes, it has several danglies that need to be woven in. (That’ll make it warmer.)

Did you guess a cat scarf? Ding! Ding! Ding! You’re right.

I saw a scarf similar to this on Pinterest (DIL might have posted it.)

and I thought, I need to knit that for my cat loving DIL. (She gives hers adorable names like Ralphy and Gozer.)

She loves cats so much, she gave hers a room of their own with a private exit to an outdoor room where they’re safe.

Okay, my scarf is a little wide, but DIL loves fat cats. And I hate ripping out and starting all over, so it’s going to be a fat cat. She can fold the poor kitty in half when she wears him. It’ll be warmer.

Now all I lack is a head. I’m hoping to give him green eyes. Oh! And maybe whiskers!!!
