Some differences between the blanket, the throw, and the Afghan

I might be a little behind in my posts, so here is a link to a post on Crochet Spot’s blog:

Blanket, Throw, or Afghan
By Amy Lynn Yarbrough

It gives some differences between blankets, throws, and afghans. I also like some of the patterns given as examples.


Immanuel (From The Squalor Of A Borrowed Stable)

Here is a very nice song about the Savior. It was written by Stuart Townend. There are one or two lines I may have some disagreement with, but most of the song is beautiful.

Preformed by David Wesley.

Immanuel (From The Squalor of a Borrowed Stable)

Here are the lyrics, maybe someday I will have come up with some improvements in my ‘problem spots’, but for now, here are the lyrics as sung:

Immanuel (From The Squalor of a Borrowed Stable)

Verse 1
From the squalor of a borrowed stable
By the Spirit and a virgin’s faith
To the anguish and the shame of scandal
Came the Savior of the human race
But the skies were filled
With the praise of heav’n
Shepherds listen as the angels tell
Of the gift of God come down to man
At the dawning of Immanuel
Verse 2
King of heaven now the friend of sinners
Humble servant in the Father’s hands
Filled with power and the Holy Spirit
Filled with mercy for the broken man
Yes He walked my road and He felt my pain
Joys and sorrows that I know so well
Yet His righteous steps give me hope again
I will follow my Immanuel
Verse 3
Through the kisses of a friend’s betrayal
He was lifted on a cruel cross
He was punished for a world’s transgressions
He was suffering to save the lost
He fights for breath He fights for me
Loosing sinners from the claims of hell
And with a shout our souls are free
Death defeated by Immanuel
Verse 4
Now He’s standing in the place of honor
Crowned with glory on the highest throne
Interceding for His own beloved
‘Til His Father calls to bring them home
Then the skies will part as the trumpet sounds
Hope of heaven or the fear of hell
But the bride will run to her lover’s arms
Giving glory to Immanuel

Stuart Townend
