Let’s continue with the verses from Until We Reach Home by Lynn Austin. As her sisters are hospitalized on Ellis Island, Sofia finds herself all alone waiting for them to recover. Her friend, Ludwig, shares yet more Scriptures with her.
So much is happening in our world, in our nation, even in our homes!
Perhaps you are also waiting for loved ones to recover from an illness/addiction.
Perhaps you are also feeling abandoned by God.
Perhaps you are putting on a brave, cheerful face all the while feeling all alone in your own private pain, your own private hell.
Take heart, Dear One!
We are not alone.
The LORD commands us to be strong and courageous, not to be afraid or even discouraged because He is with us wherever we go.
I have certainly experienced times when I am weak, afraid and discouraged, despite knowing God is with me.
How many of you, I wonder, have followed this same path
to remembering when you’re weak, you are strong,
to walking courageously with your Father?

At our last local quilt show, there was a bed turning of beautiful vintage quilts! Oh! They were so beautiful and inspiring!

Here are a few of the quilts I fell in love with.

Your comments are so appreciated!
I read each one and will respond by email to you! :)
