Quilt:    Ordination Stole- Ordinary Time

Quilt Recipient:    the Reverend JY

Saturday our Presbytery had the privilege of ordaining another amazing woman into the ministry.  Again I was commissioned to design and quilt a stole for her.

I pray that God’s joy and love accompany her in all her endeavours.  I pray that her congregation love and support her, that they partner with her in worshipping and serving the Lord.

Jeremiah 1:9 Then the Lord put out his hand and touched my mouth; and the Lord said to me, “Now I have put my words in your mouth.”

This is one of the first quilts I attempted.  It has more than fulfilled its purpose.  I enjoy it almost every night while reading, writing, thinking or watching the tube.  Of course for this block I had to use one of my favourite fabrics, something from Barbara Brackman’s “A Morris Garden”.

Today’s prayer is one of gratitude, thanks for a warm home, leisure time, an education that enables me to read, the resources and ability to pursue creative activities, for my husband that is central to my life and sits in company with me in the evenings whether I am paying attention to him or not.  I am so blessed, all thanks be to the Creator.

Judges 19:9     When the man with his concubine and his servant got up to leave, his father-in-law, the girl’s father, said to him, “Look, the day has worn on until it is almost evening. Spend the night. See, the day has drawn to a close. Spend the night here and enjoy yourself. Tomorrow you can get up early in the morning for your journey, and go home.”
