There is something exceptionally good and precious about praying over some object, especially a  blanket/shawl, then gifting it to another person to find comfort in. It’s as if there are these invisible stitches of grace, woven together to bless and encourage. A certain spiritual energy is present that is invisible to the eye. The object now becomes the conduit of Jesus’ love and healing. It is a beautiful way to enter into the service of another whether it is a stitched blanket, a meal, flowers or a handwritten note. There are so many people we meet on a daily basis that need to know this love. In the alchemy of giving, both the giver and the receiver are blessed. “Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.” Luke 6:38
