Disclaimer: This blog is completely boring, and may include entries on when I last washed my dishes, how many pairs of shoes I own, and the occasional rant. I appreciate all the visits and comments you have left on my blog. It's very nice of you to take time out of your busy day to visit me...please come back again soon! If this is not what you're looking for. Move along. This is my little soapbox.

Free Time

Thought I would take a minute and show you what I do in my free time. I was turned onto this by a friend and started doing it and have found such satisfaction and comfort in them.  They are called Prayer Shawls and are any color and stitch combination.  We make the shawls, then the Prayer team at church prays over them and passes them out to any one who is in need. Need can be anything from diagnosis of disease  to a death in the family. My last group of them went to the nursing home.  Where 5 lovely people were comforted. ( I have done this for several years and will always accept donated yarn. It takes about 12 oz per shawl.)  In the  photo are the latest recipients. I removed the names.        You can read about it HERE

Totally agree w/ Chris on this one...
Doing good for others helps oneself to no small end.

Good for you (and for those blessed).

Stay safe down there.
