Caring and Sharing

Wrapped in Love

I learned of The Prayer Shawl Ministry while vacationing on Star Island off the coast of New Hampshire and Maine in 2003. A fellow conferee was leading a knitting group. As result of that contact (Ginny was from Conneticut) I made about nine shawls during the fall of 2003 for relatives and friends who were ill, had finacial or marital bereavement, etc. Since then I have made several more and will continue to do so. By-the-by, I made one for myself which I never did use, but gave to my cousin when she had back surgery last spring. I guess we are not supposed to make them for ourselves!

I do not work with an organizaton, but on my own. I ALWAYS use Lion Brand Homespun! The colors are wonderful, and mateial is so soft!! I have mad a total of about fourteen Shawls now.

One of the recipents wraps herself up in her shawl when she goes to bed. Another says she feels that Gods arms are enclosing her when she wraps herself in it, still another somehow wraps herself in her Shawl as she does her housework. They ALL just love the beauty and warmth of their shawls!!

Peace and Love to all, Pris Leach
