SPIRITUAL SUNDAY 2010 #8 - Prayer Shawl #3 & Book

Is this the absolutely fastest year in history? It is certainly being so in my life!! The last time I posted on Spiritual Sunday was 2 1/2 months ago on May 15th. Seems like I just did!!

At that time I talked about a new Prayer Shawl Ministry my friend had started and showed you the first shawl I had made for my second daughter. Then I completed my second shawl, a red one for my older daughter. Today I am showing my 3rd completed shawl for my oldest son, David.

TThis pretty blue one. It has not been prayed over by my Tuesday night Bible Study group yet but I assure you it will be. It took me 4 weeks & 2 days to complete this one. I'm getting faster!!

Yesterday I started on my 4th: a variegated green for my younger son. Is any one else out there in blogland making the prayer shawls?

I wanted to share the 12th book I've read so far this year with you. Most of the information, and views that Grant Jeffrey shared are ones I am very familiar with. If you have not read a book on heaven, in my opinion this one would be worth your time and effort.

I am going to have to see if I have enough yarn to make one. I know a friend who could really use it.

The nursing home where I work has been the recepient of a prayer shawl ministry. I pass them out to
residents who need some extra comfort. They always come with a little prayer attached to them. I read that to the residents when I give them the shawl. It is so special! God bless you.

Hi Susan, I agree with you that this year is going by swiftly. My hubby and I were just talking about it today. It seems like just a couple weeks ago that spring was beginning and here it is August already!

Your shawls are great...what a wonderful ministry.

I love to read, so I'll have to look for the book you mentioned.

Have a good Monday,

Debra said...

Susan, I was just thinking, "could this really be August?" Doesn't seem possible!

Love the pretty.

Did I ever tell you that Grant has been to our church several times. Of course David loves him! We had dinner with him at our pastor's house and David couldn't soak in enough of his wisdom. Bet the book was insightful.

The prayer shawls are beautiful. It is a wonderful idea. You are so right about how time flies. Seems like the year just began and here we are into August already. The books sounds really good. I would love to read it.

The prayer shawls are so pretty! My husband works with a church in TX that has this same ministry and they have sent me a couple for friends who have been fighting cancer and/or deployed overseas. I LOVE IT!



Midlife Mom said...

Just beautiful! Love the color and love more what the shawl stands for. I haven't made any but have a friend in Florida that is part of a group that makes them all of the time. Such a wonderful ministry!

So glad your dear friends were able to be back with you all. I know how it is to miss good friends when they have to move away for one reason or another. That was a lovely meal that you took to them, made my mouth water!!!

Carmen said...

Hi Susan, Thank you for your comment! I had heard of Perry Stone although I haven't read him yet. I'll have to do that now! Your prayer shawls are very nice! What a nice idea. I also checked out the other blog you contribute to and find it interesting as well.

Thanks for stopping by! :)

Hi Susan, I've left Facebook for a while, but I am trying to blog again. Just popping over to say hi. Love you, my sister.

A prayer shawl, I LOVE the idea!

Mountain Mama said...

Your prayer shawls are so pretty Susan. I used to do a lot of crochet but haven't for a long time. However I am crocheting some tiny booties now. My daughter and great granddaughter are making layettes for stillborn babies for a hospital nearby. It's something that was done for my little great granddaughter Lily a few months ago and I feel it is imnportant for the parents to see their infant dressed no matter how small.
I may try making a prayer shawl later in the year when the wither snow keeps me indoors.
God bless you and yours dear. You are such a special lady.

Tina said...

Susan, no question you asked was too private. I plan on posting this week and answering all your questions! Love you.

That's beautiful! I admire you for making that! What a great idea! That's pretty fast too!

Hope ya'll are doing okay! Ran across the picture of us at Oriental Buffet the other day and was thinking of you. Hope you're having a great summer!
