Sharing God's Hugs
Created By: Sherry Davis

I was looking at the Lion Brand newsletter and saw the articles about the prayer shawl and was interested in the idea. When I made my first prayer shawl, I had no idea of who would receive it. As I was making this shawl, a very dear friend at church was diagnosed with cancer. I decided that she needed this shawl as she fought this disease. I wrapped and placed it in a gift bag with a note explaining why I made it and the prayers offered while crocheting it and to envision God giving her a hug as she wore it. She told me that she uses it every morning as she has her prayer time and prays not only for herself but others.



I have made five prayer shawls. They are always surprised that someone would take the time to make the shawl and prayers were said as they were made. One friend's sister was diagnosed with cancer and I asked if I could make her sister one. When I finished itI was going to mail it but my friend wanted to take it to her. Her sister loved the shawl and wore it a lot during her illness. As her time her was drawing to an end, my friend told that her sister asked to be wrapped in the shawl for the funeral. It had meant so much to her and had given her such comfort during her illness that she wanted to buried in it.



I hope to get others in my church interested in the ministry, and have offered to teach a crochet class. Hopefully we will soon be doing more of these to give out to share God's love.
