To make or create? What is the difference?

Smudge and I at Tollymore

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.Genesis ch 1.The word create comes from the Hebrew word 'bara' which is to create, shape, form, however the empasis here is ex nihilo (out of nothing) God just had to speak and it was done. This week on leave I have had lots of opportunities to make and also to observe creation. The monthly Precept study has been on Genesis part 1 which focuses on creation.

 Psalm 139 I will give thanks  to You, for I amfearfully and wonderfully made precious also are your thoughts to me O God how vast are the sum of them. If I should count them they would outnumber the sand

 Genesis 32:12
"For You said, 'I will surely prosper you and make your descendants as the sand of the sea, which is too great to be numbered.' "

 It is getting closer to the sale to raise funds for Kiwoko at the Ulster hospital so did some more knitting and crochet.

There were two sessions for coffee + craft  so lots of items made from handbags to cushions to quilts.

It was lovely to have a busy home and folk picking up ideas and tips from each other.

I fitted in lots of walks mostly with friends and Smudge as the weather was so aggreeable.

Smudge has always enjoyed a paddle but we have never saw her swim she just likes to be at the edge and race on the beach. However today she slipped off a stone and automatically went into doggy paddles. There was an obvious under current and the doggy paddle quickly became a doggy panic and at one point before J fished her out by her collar he thought he would have to wade in for her!!!

Smudge was really exhausted this evening as the second day she has walked for over 2hrs.
