Quilt:  Square in Squares

Quilt Recipient:   My Significant Other

God has blessed me with a soul mate.  We make a good pair.  We met online, each of us not long after our previous marriages.  Two children each, almost all the same age.  We married within three years.  He asked my father for permission and in doing so, made my mother cry.  He is very much like my father.  I love him with all my heart.

Lord Creator God, you are breath and life, who formed dust and dirt and ash and made creatures in Your image.  You crafted us as companions for one another, placed us with families that we might love and support one another.  Your compassion for our needs is beyond all imagining.
I give you thanks for my husband, for his strength and courage, his love and care for me.  I give you thanks for his amazing sense of humour, his sensitive heart, his willingness to grieve, his open nature.  I give you thanks that my life is better for his love, for his willingness to sacrifice that I might follow your call on my life.  Give him patience, tolerance, gratitude and joy.  Give us peace and contentment all the days we share together.  Amen.

Genesis 2:18
Then the Lord God said, “It is not good that the Adam should be alone; I will make him a helper as his partner.”
