Birthday Prayer Pillow

Ahnalin was invited to a little girl friend's birthday party.

She is always very proud to 
give her friends gifts
that have been "made by Mama".

While I often give aprons and skirts,
another of my favorite gifts to make is 
 Prayer Pillows.

I made a Prayer Pillow
for her teacher at the end of the school year.

I call them prayer pillows
because the whole time I sew these little bundles of fluff,
I pray for the recipient.

I pray blessing, peace, joy,
health, comfort, mercy,
any specific need they may have,
and of course love.

My mom used to make them for people 
when I was little.
And I always remember people feeling 
so loved and blessed when they received them.

the birthday girl was Brynn,
lover of the color blue.

I pray the Lord blesses her with a joyous year.

Happy Sewing!

I LOVE YOUR SPECIAL PRAYER PILLOWS. Thank you for remembering how special they were when I made them. We never know as a parent what will make a imprint on our children lives but I am grateful you remember the beautiful things. You are such a incredible daughter, mother, sister and wife and friend to others. I think you can see your mother LOVES YOU LIKE CRAZY!!!!!
