Prayer Blankets

I’ve mentioned before that our church has a ministry that makes prayer blankets.  I’ve given out a number of blankets and they are such a blessing to the recipients.  The priest blesses them and we all pray over the blankets while making them.  Then we continue to pray for the people that receive a blanket so they are truly covered in prayer.

Since Janie received a sewing machine for Christmas, I thought it would be cool to bring her to the Sew-a-thon so she could see what it was all about.  The ladies were so welcoming!  One lady told her to sit down at her machine and she let Janie sew one.  Janie decided that was the blanket that she wanted to give to my dad for his upcoming rotor cuff surgery.  She followed it through the whole process and we delivered it to my dad that evening.

His surgery went well and he’s recovering with his prayer blanket on his lap!  They told Janie that she is welcome to bring her own machine next time.  We have to train her early since I don’t have much to offer at the Sew-a-thon.  I lack in both sewing and ironing skills!

5 on Friday

I’m a little late on this but happy new year!  Monday morning at 7am, I sat and enjoyed the silence.  After 2 weeks of crazy, I was happy to get back to work.

  • I just finished reading the Legend series.  It was good but not my favorite (I think that title belongs to Divergent).  I’m starting Gone Girl now.
  • We have tickets to a prescreening of Pattington.  I’m so excited!  I have a Pattington Bear that I received after driving the car down the driveway at 3 years old so he holds a special place in my heart.
  • I’m back on the working out regularly bandwagon.  I went to Zumba for an hour and followed that up with C25K on my first day back at working out after a month off.  My hip flexors were really hurting the next day.  After 3 workouts, I’m feeling better.
  • I ordered these curtains for our dining room off of myhabit yesterday.  With my Amazon gift cards for swagbucks, they came to $23!

  • I’ve been working on trying to get this house organized.  I listed some things on Freecycle.  You would be amazed at the stuff people will take off of your hands.  I got rid of all of my old Magic Bullet pieces even though I don’t have the bullet.  I also went through our coat closet and donated 3 coats.  I really love getting rid of stuff!
