Do you see that yellow lap afghan.
It was a gift from someone I don't know.
At my brother's memorial
there were several of them made for us.
This lady in my sisters church does these for people.
Do you know how much comfort just receiving this afghan brought?
It means this lady, who does not even know me,
prays as she makes these and then gives of her heart.
She included words of comfort and also a little stuffed animal.
I was shamed
WE ALL HAVE THINGS WE CAN DO
with my stitcheries, I have been selfish
thinking "oh they won't appreciate the work put in to it"
or...they wouldn't like it.
So my new goal is to
examine my abilities and bless others with them
NOT to be selective
to pray as I work on such and such.
You don't have to have great talents,
it can be ANYTHING
ANYTHING sent with love and prayers
will be a blessing.
Truthfully, my husband has claimed this yellow one.
IT is his favorite color.
BUT I am the one that is learning the lesson on giving from the heart.
That is priceless.
Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you,
do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets.
