Philippians 4:23. Still Stitching. A Finished Baby Quilt.

Philippians 4:23

The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit.

Adding in those words - with your spirit - to me means to embody, envelope our very being with Jesus' grace.
Grace as defined by Webster's:

a unmerited divine assistance given to humans for their regeneration or sanctification

b a virtue coming from God
c a state of sanctification enjoyed through divine assistance

I hope and trust that you have been blessed with this study of Philippians.  

Thank you for your support, comments and acceptance.  

It's been just me, Jesus, you - my precious readers as well as my patient family and friends who listen to me brainstorm and offer their perspectives.  Please accept my heartfelt gratitude and thanks.  

Father, I pray, that as we conclude this study of Philippians that every being, every precious reader may accept and receive Your unmerited divine assistance  , the virtue of grace and knowledge that they are loved and forgiven as they accept Your gift of Your Son, Jesus Christ, as their Savior.  Furthermore, I thank You for Your graceful guidance as I wrote this study.  

You have grown my faith beyond measure.
You have lead me through the valley of the shadow of death.
You have proved Yourself faithful, even when I have failed You.
You have used this study to bless others.
My gratitude overwhelms me.
May You accept my praise and thankfulness as a sweet, sweet sound to Your ear.
Amen and amen.

Looking Forward:
Still Stitching
As we go forward with the new Bible study, Still Stitching, I ask for your prayers.  We will be addressing the issue of having loved ones with life controlling issues such as alcoholism, addiction and other life issues.  

As I discussed this new direction with a friend, she said, "Oh, Still Stitching!"  As you can see here, it is the perfect title.  Thank you, Friend -  you know who you are.

A Finished Baby Quilt
This quilt is done!  Ok.  Maybe not.  It needs a label.   But other than that - it's done!  I followed Allison's tutorial on her blog, Woodberry Way, and wala!  Easy peasy!  She called it a 1-Hour Quilt Top (Using the "Scrappy Trip Piecing Method) and I loved it!  
It was so easy - even for me!

This was my inspiration fabric.

These were the fabrics I chose.

 I put them order by taking various black and white photos 
which clearly show value.  

This was the last quilt that Sammy, 
may he rest in peace,
gave his approval.
 Here is the finished product!
 My daughter quilted it for me.

Soon it will be 
wrapped around 
the sweet baby 
it was made for. 

 I hope you check out these fun link ups!
