I heard such a lovely story recently. A women had a friend who was very ill and she so longed to do something to help Or to give her something that would make a difference. But she did not know what. I guess we have all been there. What she did, was knit her friend a shawl, all the while praying for her friend - Kind of knitting her prayers into the shawl. When she gave it to her friend, she said she suddenly felt a bit silly Doubts crowded in - was it such a good idea? But every time she saw her friend after that, she had the shawl around her. She said she felt wrapped in prayer; encircled by the prayers of her faithful friend. She spoke of the sense of comfort she experienced through it. I don't know why this story impacted me so greatly But it did. So I share it you, my friends . .
