Here are a few quilts that were blessed in August.
Since July I've had absolutely no time to quilt anything; I hope to change that this coming weekend, although our community is having the Pinto Bean Festival.
However, in the last week I've given one to my classmate Bob K., who is having back surgery; today I sent off three: one to Polly B. in Florida, wife of a classmate, who is in need of a diagnosis; one to Leah T. in Illinois who needs a diagnosis for heart issues and is hoping treatment will be non-invasive, and one to Robert J. in Illinois who has been suffering for six years with prostate cancer that is spreading. (Robert's wife is a former schoolmate.)
When we started our prayer quilt ministry, besides using our stash, our hope was that we would be able to make some small quilts that would prove a blessing to people with cancer. We've expanded the ministry to include people facing serious health challenges. While we frequently hear wonderful stories of healing and God's grace, I am constantly amazed at how much I am blessed by this work. I hadn't even considered that possibility back when we started, and all the blessings just make my heart sing!
