Pockets of Love

I have a dear friend who has been diagnosed with leukemia. She has taught the Bible to literally thousands of women and through all the challenges in her life, has been a godly example of trusting behavior, humility and faithful service.
We sent out emails, phone calls...everything but Facebook since she is there and asked ladies whose lives have been touched to send her a note to slide into a pocket. Less than 3 weeks later
the quilt is on its way, to be hand delivered by one of her former class members.
The quilting contains several Bible verses 2 Cor 1:6, Psalm 116:5, Proverbs 3:5, Psalm 46. You see the word compassion above. The backing was another gift from God...though purchased, I could not have found fabric that was more appropriate.
An extra blessing was 2 Saturdays that up to 7 ladies, all former students of hers, were able to spend in a "quilting bee", prayer and memories. the time spent was truly a blessing.
This is the finished quilt, filled with the notes. To God be the glory and we give thanks for all the blessings from our Lord Jesus Christ, given to us through Dawn.
