A Special Blessing Quilt

Our friends, Luke and Alyssa, are in the process of adopting a baby from Korea. They are "patiently" waiting for Kim, Joon's arrival in 3 to 6 months. So, I prepared a quilt for their "special" delivery and we tied it last Wednesday at our bible study.
The quilt is a "prayer quilt". As we tie each tie, we silently say a prayer, in this case for Kim, Joon
Everyone took part...Roxie and Chris.
Jim,  parents-to-be Alyssa and Luke...
Here is the quilt, all tied. Now I just have to put the binding on and add a label. then it will be ready for Kim, Joon when he makes his arrival in SLO.

God is good...

Sweet little quilt and how wonderful to have all of those prayers concentrated on the family addition. Surely he will receive many prayers, and it's thoughtful and satisfying for his family and friends to have a tangible reminder of how special he is.
