My husband is in the Army and we are stationed in...
Created By: Laura Lusby

My husband is in the Army and we are stationed in Italy. Last summer, a group of friends and I started meeting weekly to crochet and chat. The day after our first meeting, my husband became suddenly ill with a staph infection. He spent three weeks in the Italian hospital, 10 of those days on life support as the infection caused lung failure. During this time I was working on a blanket for him that I had started after our first crochet meeting. As I worked, I found myself quoting scripture to the thythm of the crochet. My husband was healed and is now back at work.

After this, though, I attended a women's conference and took a class on making prayer shawls. The ladies who taught the class make their shawls for cancer patients. However, the ones who need them in our commmunity are war widows. I have made four prayer shawls since November and have given three of them away. Another friend has joined me in the work. It is very difficult to make a shawl for someone you don't know, expecially if all you know is that you will give them a shawl just after they have lost their husband.

The ladies in our women's Bible study group pray over each shawl that is made before they are given out. It is a hard labor, but the shawls bring God's love and comfort to those who are in desparate need.
