Happy Thanksgiving (late) :-) and Prayer Request

as you received Christ Jesus the Lord
so walk in Him
rooted and built up in Him 
and established in the faith
just as you were taught
abounding in thanksgiving.”
(Colossians 2:6-7)
Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving!
I’ve been super busy sewing and other things, but not much time to post.  Will post soon! 🙂
(Prayers would be appreciated as I attempt to get Margaret’s and my dresses and Margaret’s petticoat all done by December 10th, as well as several Christmas orders.  I’m still feeling kind of overwhelmed and need prayer that I will get everything done and that I will keep my eyes on Jesus with a joyful heart even (read: especially) when I feel overwhelmed.  Thank you all!

11/7 Bible Verse

“Then Jesus told His disciples,
‘If anyone would come after Me
let him deny himself 
and take up his cross 
and follow Me.  
For whoever would save his life will lose it, 
but whoever loses his life for My sake shall find it.  
For what will it profit a man
if he gains the whole world 
and forfeits his soul?”
(Matthew 16:24-26)

9/19 Bible Verse

Who is a God like you
pardoning iniquity and passing over transgression
for the remnant of his inheritance? 
He does not retain his anger forever
because he delights in steadfast love
He will again have compassion on us; 
he will tread our iniquities underfoot. 
You will cast all our sins into the depths of the sea
You will show faithfulness to Jacob 
and steadfast love to Abraham
as you have sworn to our fathers from the days of old.
(Micah 7:18-20)

8/29 Bible Verse

“If we say that we have fellowship with Him,
and walk in darkness
we lie, and do not the truth:
But if we walk in the light, 
as He is in the light, 
we have fellowship one with another
and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son 
cleanseth us from all sin.”
1 John 1:6-7

Ever since Blogger came out with the “Stats” page on blogger dashboards, I have been intrigued to see what posts on “The Dashwood Sisters” blog are visited most.  Did you know that the Molly’s Wardrobe page has been visited 383 times since May?  Following that is the Emma Costume Study at 228 views.  The other pages on the Wives and Daughters costume study, the movie reviews, and the posts from the Anne of Green Gables fashion week all have received a good many views.

I’m glad so many people are visiting my costume study page!  Because of all the views, I thought I would ask my readers, what do you think of the Wives and Daughters Costume Study page?  Is there anything you think I could add to make it more detailed and interesting?  Or do you like it as it is?  Have any of the posts helped you in recreating your own Wives and Daughters costume?  (I should love to see the finished product, if they have helped!)  Would you like to see other characters added to the study?  (I have been planning on screencapping Mrs. Hamley’s and the Browning sisters’ gowns but have not taken the time to yet.)  What about any new pages?  Please feel free to share.  Just please be kind in your comments and don’t slaughter the posts.  You may give ideas, but don’t slaughter them. 

One more thought: I would like to start posting Bible verses more frequently; perhaps schedule them for every Sunday.  After all, God has made us for His glory, and there is no greater joy in life than fulfilling that purpose for which He created us.  Here is one to get us started, even if it’s not Sunday:

“But the steadfast love of the LORD is from everlasting to everlasting 
on those who fear Him
and His righteousness to children’s children
to those who keep His covenant
and remember to do His commandments.”
(Psalm 103:17-18)
