Not So Much About Quilting



The baby chicks are growing.  They will need a new home soon.  Waiting for them to start laying eggs.  I imagine that is a while off and only if they are hens.  We haven’t figured that out yet.  These are mixed breed chickens.  I’d like to have some Road Island Reds.


I finally got around to potting some flowers to go on the front porch.  I have 4 hanging baskets and 4 in pots so far, plus the poinsettias.  The poinsettias are doing really well.


The plant on the left had two pretty orange flowers on it and my granddaughter decided to pick them.  There is still one bud that hasn’t opened up yet.  Hope it will get more. The one in the center is a miniature rose. I haven’t had good luck with them.  They always get aphids or some tiny bugs on them.  Guess I will need to get some rose dust and see if that will help prevent them. Or find a home remedy.


I’ve been working on UFOs.  Have almost finished a top.  I’m on the next to last border.  Hope I can get it finished today.  The UFO leader and ender blocks are going nicely.  I’m still hoping to get the Quilty Fun quilt top quilted before the end of the month.  I need to concentrate on getting quilts finished for the guild quilt show in October.  I’d like to enter 3 or 4 quilts. Think the paperwork with pictures is due in June.

Is the term, unsaved believer, an oxymoron, or a statement of fact? A few examples are warranted to shed some light on the question.

UNSAVED BELIEVERS: John 12:42 Nevertheless many even of the rulers believed in Him, but because of the Pharisees they were not confessing Him, for fear that they would be put out of the synagogue;

Can faith not confessed save anyone?

UNSAVED BELIEVER: Luke 18:18-23 A ruler questioned Him, saying, "Good Teacher, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?"........22 When Jesus heard this He said to him, "One thing you still lack; sell all that you possess and distribute it to the poor, and you shall have treasure in heaven; come and follow Me. 23 But when he heard these things, he became sad, for he was extremely rich.

The ruler wanted to omit the term of pardon he did not like. Can those of us, living under the new covenant, omit the terms of pardon we do not like and still be saved?

UNSAVED BELIEVERS: James 2:18-19 But someone may well say, "You have faith and I have works; show me your faith without the works, and I will show you my faith by my works." 19 You believe that God is one. You do well; the demons also believe, and shudder.

Demons believe but, would anyone assert that demons are saved?

UNSAVED BELIEVERS: Are believers who deny that repentance or immersion in water are essential to the remission of sins, saved? (Acts 2:38)

John 3:5 Jesus answered, "Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.

Can you ignore the requirements of Jesus and still be saved?

Mark 16:16 He who has believed and has been baptized shall be saved...

If men practice a water-less salvation, will that save them?
