WILL THERE BE QUILTING IN HEAVEN

I know my days are numbered
But what that number is
I cannot hazard single guess
The knowledge solely His.

After I have seen the light
And left my familyís side
I wonder, will my time include
Soft cotton smooth and wide.

Iíve gained much satisfaction
From quilts Iíve made down here
And do not wish to stop it yet
For many a coming year.

My cedar chest is bursting full
But always wanting more
Thinking many quilts ahead
I return to local store.

My stash, it grows and then it shrinks
With great variety.
I wonder will there be a source
Of fabric there for me?

Will Heaven have a quilting club?
So keen I am to go
To sit with other ladies
And be content to sew.

Beyond the lovely pearly gates
If quilting there will be
My heart will overflow with joy.
I can hardly wait to see.

Iím told it is a happy spot
The Bible clearly states.
If not I think Iíll contemplate
A trip some other place.

I think our stashes will stay on earth for some neady person as we will have access to ALL the fabric we could want and more I can just see miles and miles all for the picking!

Thanks for all the nice comments.

I sure hope there is. Just think we could all be quilting ALL DAY!! Someone could just come in and feed me so that I would not have to get up and make something. LOL.
