I have previously posted about Bama Bound Quilts. I wanted to do something to help their tremendous effort to bring comfort in the form of a handmade quilt to children who lost everything in the tornados in Alabama. I chose this quilt:
I got a call from my sister that the girl had especially missed a quilt she had slept with every night of her life. It was something her grandmother had made that had been lost in the tornado. She was so happy to have another quilt. I know it will not replace her grandmother's quilt, but I hope when she looks at it she will remember her grandmother's quilt.
I look back at all the people who did something small. Michelle who organized the Bama Bound Quilts page and charity (ok, that might not be so small!). I made the quilt. My sister knew just who could help us find a recipient, and finally the lady who made the exact right choice for the quilt's new owner. I look at this and know that only God can orchestrate people who don't even all know each other to do something that turned out so perfectly. How much He loves that little girl! She was missing her security blanket and He showed her so lovingly that her true security was with her the whole time...a heavenly Father who cares about the little things that aren't so little to you. I'm so thankful I got a glimpse into how God works once again...it never fails to amaze me!!
