Praying Over Afghans

My son's little friend was diagnosed with Leukemia at the age of 5. She was alway at Eggleston Children's Hospital in Atlanta for treatment. I was taken there and visited with the children. I found that the chemo rooms used for treatment were always very cold.

So I started using yarn that I had stocked up and then gathered yarn from friends and neighbors to make afghans for the children on the cancer wards. And I prayed over them as I crocheted. Soon, other people would drop by the house with yarn for these afghans. Some were pastels and others were brightly colored yarn.

My friend would give the afghans to other children on the floor for warmth and comfort and several would be put into the treatment rooms just to keep the kids warm and hopefully feel strength from the Lord.

I love to crochet and do it for relaxation and it gives me such pleasure to crochet these items for sick children.
