Gentleness and Strength

"Nothing is so strong as gentleness, and nothing is so gentle as true strength."

I'm so glad that your site is working again, girls! For the past few days, it had been down (at least on my computer) and I had been praying it'd be back up.

God bless you both!

Dear Anna,
I've been visiting your site for a while now and I find a great joy and encouragment! Thank you for taking the time to write on here! Your latest post, "Gentleness and Strength" is beautiful. If you don't mind me asking, where did you get your dress? If you made it, what pattern did you use? I'm trying to learn how to sew and I wear skirts and dresses, but I find it hard to find any already made, and even patterns for them. Thanks again,

<>< <><

Dear friends, I was looking for a quote on inner beauty and chanced upon your godly and inspiring blog. I took a quote from from post and pasted it on my blog.
I am Amrita from India and I find your blog very absorbing.

Joanna: I'm glad it's working too! It was a bit disconcerting to come home and find things messed up. But, my wonderful brother Elijah soon fixed the problem.

Kathrann: Thank you for your encouragement! I made the dress, using an old Simplicity pattern, #9597. I lengthened it and added the ruffle and sash. I'm not sure if the pattern is still for sale or not. I hope you're able to find some good ones, however!

Amrita: It's wonderful to hear from you! I'm glad you were able to use a quote that we posted.
