Psalm 103:2-3 Dear Lord, Thank you, Lord, for all you’ve done for me. Don’t let me forget that you are always blessing me whether I notice it or not. Thank you for forgiving my sins, and thank you for healing me. I trust you and love you, Lord. Amen 詩篇103:2-3 親愛なる主よ、 主よ、あなたが私のためにしてくださったすべてのことに感謝します。私が気づこうが気づくまいが、あなたはいつも私を祝福してくださっていることを、私に忘れさせないでください。私の罪を赦し、癒してくださってありがとうございます。主よ、あなたを信じ、あなたを愛します。 アーメン

Sunday Prayer

Captain's Log, Stardate 01.22.2006

Leave any prayer requests in the comments and I’ll be praying this week. You don’t have to be Christian to leave a prayer request. If you’d rather not advertise to everyone on the blogosphere, just leave an unspoken prayer request or email me.

I’m getting paranoid I’m forgetting somebody. If you don’t see yourself and you want to, email me or leave a comment. I never promised I had a better memory than a goldfish. “Oh! I have a castle!”

Not to be mean or anything, but if you don't email me or comment to update your prayer request, I'm only going to pray 3 Sundays. I've got a couple fly-by prayer requests and a growing list.

Father, thank you for being God, for being holy and forgiving at the same time.

Writing: Working on my Swain articles today. I got a bunch of plot points done yesterday and I'll work on a spreadsheet outline tomorrow. I might do some market research today. I also need to work on my new website template.

Diet: Chicken chow fun for lunch (600) which is actually within the Blood Type Diet parameters, but it wasn't as good as my husband's Hong Kong style noodles. :( Tonight is leftovers. Maybe I'll get some time in on the bike later, too.

Ron's hormonal crit partners??? ROTFL!!!

Thanks for the prayers, Camy! You're such a gem!
Thanks Camy! Love you girl!
Mirtika said…
Thanks, Camy! I need it today, too. I'm having a bit of dermatitis, and my face looks like someone threw bits of strawberry on it. Ack.

I also prayed for Squirly's hip today. I hope she gives us word of a healing. That would be cool.

Darlene Schacht said…
Cami, that is so nice. Val from is on my heart. She wants prayer for her teenage daughter who is struggling with an illness that is affecting her body and self esteem. Thanks for your kind heart.
Pammer said…
Thanks Sweetie. Just an update on Jules. She goes tomorrow to consult with the surgeon for the removal of the lumps. AND she also may have to have surgery on her shoulder from where she fell at work. AND she has the flu. This poor girl really needs your prayers.

Hugs! Love ya!
Paula said…
Please pray that I can meet my writing deadlines this week and still be a good Mom! LOL
Unknown said…
Thanks for the prayers, they're certainly appreciated!

I'd like to ask prayers for my daughter, Emily...that she be covered in peace.
Camy, thank you so much for that prayer. It's exaclty what I need right now. You're such a blessing to me. Loeve ya, girl!
Thank you, Camy. Last week we had...One! With me, that makes...two! Exactly the number Jesus requires for Him to show up! And He did. We had fun. This is a new woman's organization in a large planned development of hundreds of homes. Bible study as one of the activity groups. Many already go to church. And many are not interested, and many don't know me from Adam's housecat, yet. I'd just love to have a circle of Christian friends in the 'hood praying for each other, and for others as well. We'll see if the Lord blesses it, and if it's the right time. Thank you for your prayers.
Val said…
Thanks for praying for Amber, Camy! She continues to improve daily, in fact, the chaplains at the hospital have documented her condition and how she's imroved in direct opposition the doctor's reports as a sign to other people that God works miracles.

One of the nurses in the hospital mentioned Amber's improvement to the original neurosurgeon (who said she had a 0% chance of recovery) and reported to the family that he was completely dumbstruck by her report.

Praise God for His healing!
Sharon Hinck said…
Hi, Camy!
I'd love to enter the drawing for the book!
I'm trying to build up my collection of CBA "lit" books.
Hugs, Sharon

My Patreon will launch in 1 week! I took all the results of the poll and I have hopefully created fun and appealing tiers. About my Patreon: I'm trying something new for the next 6-7 months.

No Cold Bums toilet seat cover

Captain's Log, Stardate 08.22.2008 I actually wrote out my pattern! I was getting a lot of hits on my infamous toilet seat cover , and I wanted to make a new one with “improvements,” so I paid attention and wrote things down as I made the new one. This was originally based off the Potty Mouth toilet cover , but I altered it to fit over the seat instead of the lid. Yarn: any worsted weight yarn, about 120 yards (this is a really tight number, I used exactly 118 yards. My suggestion is to make sure you have about 130 yards.) I suggest using acrylic yarn because you’re going to be washing this often. Needle: I used US 8, but you can use whatever needle size is recommended by the yarn you’re using. Gauge: Not that important. Mine was 4 sts/1 inch in garter stitch. 6 buttons (I used some leftover shell buttons I had in my stash) tapestry needle Crochet hook (optional) Cover: Using a provisional cast on, cast on 12 stitches. Work in garter st until liner measures

Tabi socks, part deux

Captain's Log, Stardate 07.25.2008 (If you're on Ravelry, friend me! I'm camytang.) I made tabi socks again! (At the bottom of the pattern is the calculation for the toe split if you're not using the same weight yarn that I did for this pattern (fingering). I also give an example from when I used worsted weight yarn with this pattern.) I used Opal yarn, Petticoat colorway. It’s a finer yarn than my last pair of tabi socks, so I altered the pattern a bit. Okay, so here’s my first foray into giving a knitting pattern. Camy’s top-down Tabi Socks I’m assuming you already know the basics of knitting socks. If you’re a beginner, here are some great tutorials: Socks 101 How to Knit Socks The Sock Knitter’s Companion A video of turning the heel Sock Knitting Tips Yarn: I have used both fingering weight and worsted weight yarn with this pattern. You just change the number of cast on stitches according to your gauge and the circumference of your ankle. Th

Psalm 103:2-3 Dear Lord, Thank you, Lord, for all you’ve done for me. Don’t let me forget that you are always blessing me whether I notice it or not. Thank you for forgiving my sins, and thank you for healing me. I trust you and love you, Lord.

Chopsticks and knitting

Hahahahaha! My husband, Captain Caffeine sent me this cartoon. The Asian and the knitter in me loves this one: My parents taught me to use chopsticks at an early age so they’re pretty comfortable for me. Did you know there are differences between Japanese and Chinese chopsticks? The Chinese ones tend to be blunter and more slippery whereas the Japanese ones are pointier and sometimes have a textured tip to make it easier to grab food. My mom will eat salad with a chopstick, which I have to admit is a bit easier than a fork, for me. Any of you knit? Any of you use chopsticks?

ICRS, part 2

Captain’s Log, Stardate 07.14.2006 For all you writers —check out my Story Sensei critique service Summer Sale ! Ends tomorrow! Blog book giveaway: My Monday book giveaway is ARMS OF DELIVERANCE by Tricia Goyer. My Thursday book giveaway is TANGLED MEMORIES by Marta Perry . You can still enter both giveaways. Just post a comment on each of those blog posts. On Monday, I'll draw the winner for ARMS OF DELIVERANCE and post the title for another book I'm giving away ICRS, part 2 (continued from part 1 ): Sue Brower had invited me to the Christy awards that night and I was so thrilled to get to go. Everyone looked gorgeous. I’ve never seen Brandilyn Collins or Meredith Efken in anything besides jeans before. I hadn’t seen Sue Brower in two years and I was deathly afraid I wouldn’t recognize her, but Wendy introduced me and saved me from doing anything remotely stupid like, oh, walking past her. Sue immediately slammed me with the big dogs—she introduced me to the VPs of sales and

Toilet seat cover

Captain’s Log, Supplemental Update August 2008: I wrote up the pattern for this with "improvements"! Here's the link to my No Cold Bums toilet seat cover ! Okay, remember a few days ago I was complaining about the cold toilet seat in my bathroom? Well, I decided to knit a seat cover. Not a lid cover, but a seat cover. I went online and couldn’t find anything for the seat, just one pattern for the lid by . However, I took her pattern for the inside edge of the lid cover and modified it to make a seat cover. Here it is! It’s really ugly stitch-wise because originally I made it too small and had to extend it a couple inches on each side. I figured I’d be the one staring at it, so who cared if the extension wasn’t perfectly invisible? I used acrylic yarn since, well, that’s what I had, and also because it’s easy to wash. I’ll probably have to wash this cover every week or so, but it’s easy to take off—I made ties which you can see near the back of the seat. And
