I've Got Mail!!

YIPPIE...look what came in the mail yesterday!! My new labels!! ( notice a new label on the bottom??) I have started a charity called " A stitch and A Prayer" I have been making blankets to send to orphanages and for local needy children and have attached a prayer card. I also sell them locally and send the proceeds for other items such as formula, diapers, clothing etc.. I am very excited about this project. If you would like to be involved, feel free to shoot me and email or leave a comment. :)
Here is one of the blankets. I wrote a prayer and attached it, I really wanted to get our children praying for the children of the world. I think that many children don't realize just how fortunate they are that there are children out there that suffer on a daily basis. Being foster parents, we see that happen right under our noses.. it's very sad. The prayer reads..

Dear Lord, As I wrap my blankie tight;
be with every child tonight.
Those who suffer, those in pain
heal them, comfort them I ask in your name.
Let them know that you are there,
that others love them, that I care.
Fill their tummies, quench their thirst
and I pray above all, that they keep you first.

If you would be interested in purchasing a blankie, send me an email with your color choices. The blankets sell for $16

John 14:18 I will not leave you as orphans, I will come to you.

Psalm 68:5 A father to the fatherless, a defender of widows is God in his holy dwelling.

HAPPY LATE BIRTHDAY! Wow! Looks like you had a fabulous birthday! :) I love the new labels and stitch and a prayer project. I had to wipe my tears with the prayer. It's simple yet so powerful! I'm praying it goes all over the world!
