Blessings

Last winter we asked family and friends to help us with a special project. We asked them to send quilt blocks and with the quilt blocks a written blessing/prayer/or wish for Suhn.

Yesterday I was handed the finished product - a beautiful blanket, quilted together by a dear friend. I got teary looking at it. Each piece of fabric representing a person or family who is praying Suhn home. In one sense home to her family, but even better than that, praying her home to her Saviour.

Snippets from the blessing cards:
Our prayer for you, is that you will always feel the love of all of us as well as the security of the great big arms of Jesus ~ Always remember that God has a very special plan for your life ~ God made you fearfully, wonderfully, and skillfully. We pray that you would always know this truth in your head as well as your heart ~ We can hardly wait for you to get home ~ I have been waiting for you forever. I can't wait to be your big sister ~ We are thrilled to pray for a little girl in China whom we have not yet met, but are able to love with Your great love ~ We love you so much and praise God for you ~ He's holding you tight in His fist, precious one, each day working - even in the waiting - to fulfill his special plan for your life ~ May you bring so much glory to your Creator ~ May you always feel the love that surrounds you ~ May God hold you in the palm of His hand.


The Finished Project!


This project has blessed me in so many ways. I get teary every time I read through the blessing cards.

Thank you to all who participated and to those who didn't, but are still praying my girl HOME.

Dear, dear friends, you make us rich indeed.
