Verse of the day...

3 I thank my God every time I remember you. 4 In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy 5 because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now, 6 being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus. (Philippians 1:3-6)

A Challenge...........

Had this put on my heart for some time now.... but didnt know how I was to do it. Well... I think this is it.....
A Challenge ....
21 Prayer Blankets made by Christmas!
Now that sounds like a challenge all in itself... but here is the real Challenge.
To see how many blankets I can get help with. The Prayer Blankets I make are 12 point stars for Children with Nephrotic Syndrome.
As of right now.. I have 1 completed... and 1 90% done.
I have delivered several in the past.. but need to get more done. I'm wondering ... if anyone has a 12 point star started and set it aside... maybe you don't want to finish it... maybe you started it and don't know what you were going to do with it. Well... how about sending your started/unfinished blanket to me? I'll finish it to size and send it along to the hospital.
OR........ maybe you have one finished and don't have a home for it... I can find it a home. :)
OR.... maybe you love to do charity work and would like to make one and send it my way.
Whatever the case... I would love the help... would love the variety .... would love to meet this goal..... most of all I would love to share love and prayers to the children through the blankets.

There ... I did it... I asked for help.
Anyone up for the challenge?
God Bless you all..................
have a wonderful night... sleep well........ and wake refreshed.

Sissie pointed me your way after reading my blog. I'd be happy to try to help. Any specific colors. I may only be able to get one done.

Joyce ... Thank you!!!
Any and all colors are welcome!
If you get to a point where you dont think you'll get it finished.. send it my way.. I'll get it done. Having half started ones will be a huge help in getting my challenge of 21 done!
thanks again dear.
