The Ties That Bind

My in-laws received a quilt in honor of their 60th Wedding Anniversary. (In the photo, my mother-in-law, Katheryn Speegle holds the quilt framing Karen Hadsel, the quilter.)

My adult daughter has a quilt of all her camp, church, school, and sports t-shirts. Those memories and relationships warm her inside and out.

My wife has a framed quilt hanging in our living room. Both of her grandmothers worked on it. (It's a Catherdal Window quilt) Their creation colors our lives every day.

In the fall, a quilt covers our bed made by some church members and signed by church members, family, and visitors. Some are gone now, but their personal touch weaves a warm layer of protection over us as we sleep.

Quilting is the intentional tying together of many separate pieces into a warmth giving whole. Sounds like a good description of a family, tribe, church or community.

Hope a quilt of love covers you and you are a piece of quilts that cover others.

Knitted Together

But speaking the truth in love, we must grow up in every way into him who is the head, into Christ, from whom the whole body, joined and knit together by every ligament with which it is equipped, as each part is working properly, promotes the body's growth in building itself up in love. - Ephesians 4:15-16
