    Some time ago I had an e-mail conversation with a friend, a former co-worker who is adept at needlework and I half-dare her to knit me something with a verse from the Vulgate.

    I had all but forgotten about the exchange (which started with a discussion of the LOL Bible and the Cotton Patch Bible) when she presented me with a pair of hand-knitted gloves with a verse from the Vulgate inside (half on the left glove, half on the right.)

    Now, there aren't all that many people I can show them off to here, so I'm attaching a photo:

    My little bar at the bottom of the computer screen says DONE and I don't see the pix.

    Did I miss it?

    Want to borrow my glasses? I could see the red x, bright and clear. You might call it hidden text.

    Cheers,

    I got bifocals when I turned 50 Jim! I thought they would take care of ALL my vision woes . . .

    Maybe the link will work.

    Bifocals are in the near future; when I was cooking today I mistook the 1/3 cup for the 1/4 cup ...

    et non poterant resistere sapientiae et Spiritui quo loquebatur

    But they could not withstand the wisdom and the Spirit with which he spoke.
    Acts 6:10 NRSV

    Nice gloves! I'd probably loose one and keep the other that says, "could not stand wisdom..." :smilewinkgrin:

    The Word of God is always close, His name is Jesus Christ.
