The Real Fruit

Remember this quilt?

I heard from the mother who received it for her baby. Well, not really from her, but from the person who bought the quilt from me and gave it to her.

I don't know all the details, but apparently this mother was touched and blessed by the scripture verse I embroidered on the back of the quilt. (You can see where I did it if you look for the white square on the back.) I guess God used His Word to do something in her life.

Telling you something like this is what this blog is really about.

The Fruit of Her Hands.

The tales about everything else should only fill in the gaps. I would love to be able to tell you something new every day about how God has used something I made with my hands; a quilt, a meal, a clean room, a letter...anything.

The days when I can are wonderful for me.

Praise the Lord, what a blessing! What was the verse?

The verse was Exodus 20:12. In the tract that I made to go along with the quilt, I used the ten commandments to present the gospel, and brought in other verses as well.
