This morning I just decided, Today is the Day… I sat down at the computer, did a little research, and what do you know? Within a very short time I have a real-life blog! The really funny thing to me is that I’m typing this as though someone is reading it – and I have NO followers yet… LOL! But hopefully at some point a few of my fellow bloggers will decide to come along for the journey and see what's happening here at A Quilt and A Prayer. I’m planning a wonderful and exciting year!
Anyone who knows me very well at all knows that I have three obsessions -- a healthy, thriving relationship with my Lord, my loved ones, and my quilting world! I'll talk about all three here, and hopefully I'll find ways to do that without it being all about "me" all the time :*). I'm hoping that you will hop right in and share thoughts and stories about your own spiritual life, family and quilts! We may even talk about cats once in a while too, because they’ve been an important part of my life since I was adopted by a lovely little stray I named Maybelle when I was 7 years old.
For starters, this is one of my Christmas presents this year. This morning I opened this Jim Shore statue called “Friendship Warms the Heart” from our son and his fiancée, Todd and Nikki, and our daughter, Renee. We lost one of our kitties this year, which just broke our hearts. We have had Sable and her sister Gypsy for 15 years. Sable was the sweetest little cat you would ever want to meet – can’t you tell that from her picture below? As soon as I opened the Snowman, I thought, "It looks like the snowman is holding our little Sable and smiling at her, just like I believe Jesus is doing in Heaven!" Wasn’t that the most thoughtful gift?!? It just warmed my heart and made me smile a watery smile! And isn’t that one of the things Christmas is all about? It certainly is to me!!!
Merry Christmas everyone & let’s have a FUN 2012!
