Make us worthy, Lord, to serve our fellow men
throughout the world who live and die in poverty and hunger.

Give them through our hands this day their daily bread,

and by our understanding love, give peace and joy.

Mother Teresa

Relief in Times of Distress

Answer me when I call to you, O my righteous God.
Give me relief from my distress; be merciful to me and hear my prayer.

Many are asking, “Who can show us any good?”
Let the light of your face shine upon us, O Lord.
You have filled my heart with greater joy
than when their grain and new wine abound.
I will lie down and sleep in peace,
for you alone, O Lord, make me dwell in safety.

Psalm 4:1, 6-8

Blankets Full of Love

Did anyone else love Linus from the Peanuts? I know I couldn’t help but relate to his love for his blanket–I kept my own baby blanket around for years!

I recently discovered a wonderful organization, called Project Linus, that creates and donates hand-made blankets to sick kids in need of some love.

My mom and aunts are amazing quilters and can seemingly take anything and make a gorgeous, collectible quilt from it. But even if you, like me, lack that “quilting gene,” you can blanket the world with your love and good intentions by collecting them for donation.  I put out a call and got a ton of nice comforters to donate to Project Linus and several of my friends and family members were overjoyed to contribute!

Father, for the strength you have given me, I thank you. For the health you have blessed me with, I thank you. For the women who are going through breast cancer and their families, I ask you to strengthen and to heal as you see fit. Lord, we know you want us to be in good health and to prosper. Lord, use us to do the work you have for us to do. For we know time is getting short on this earth. Lord, be with every woman who is sick and encourage them as only you can. I know how faithful you are. You have shown yourself to be everything you say you are in your Holy Word. I praise you, for you made this body, and you can heal this body. In Jesus’ Name I pray.
