February Prayer Shawl Meeting

What a wonderful group of women we have working together. Today we blessed ten shawls ee have created and we were all working on more. I feel so blessed to be involved in this group. I can feel God moving in this ministry and using it to show others His love for them through the work of our hands.

This photo is the shawls we blessed today.

Thanks you to everyone who helped us get going. Your work is appreciated and going to someone who will treasure it. Let me leave with with a few words…

Colossians 2:2-3 “I wanted them to be encouraged and knit together by strong ties of love. I want them to have complete confidence that they understand God’s mysterious plan, which is Christ himself. In him lie hidden all treasures of wisdom and knowledge.”

Its what I’ve been praying for the future owner of my shawls…and for myself. In the act of giving and receiving of the shawl, both parties are “knit together by the ties of love.” And isn’t that what Jesus wants for us? Isn’t that the treasure of knowledge hidden in our stitches?
