    Thank You All

    Someone on here will recognize the print fabric. This is the first top I have made since the fire and I owe it all to you.


    THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU. Yes I am yelling because there are not enough words to say THANK YOU.

    Although a house fire can take all your possessions, it can NOT take what is most important and that is friends like you. I may not know all your names and in fact, I may not have even talked with many of you, but I certainly have felt a great deal of caring from all of you.
    I believe God is good and He sent this group of quilters to help me in my time of need. Through Him, you have made sure I have the tools to keep my head, my heart, and my hands busy. I donít think there are words to express how much those things have helped me. Being able to still make things has comforted me and let me know I can still go on. That it is not what I have that defines me but it is what I can do that makes me whole.
    All my prized possessions are now a thing of the past. I will keep them in my memories. Now it is time to move on, to embrace what is ahead and to cherish the wonderful people who are placed in my path.
    God bless you all,
    Anita

    Love your quilt, its beautiful. I'm so sorry about the fire, but SO happy that you've turned it into a positive (as much as possible). The Lord was and will continue to be with you as you adjust, and I truly admire your positive attitude in looking at this tragedy as an opportunity for new things to happen in your life. We can't control many things that happen to us, but we DO have control in how we choose to look at things and react to it. You're an inspiration. Can't wait to see your future quilts!

    Beautiful quilt. So sorry about your fire. Staying busy helps to heal hurts so much faster. Quilting is always the best way to stay busy.

    Congratulations for your wonderful attitude. Fires can be devastating. But life is precious and material things (most of them) can be replaced. I just love your sentence that says "That it is not what I have that defines me but it is what I can do that makes me whole."
    My daughter is a Christian counsellor and I remember going with her to a girls lock up facility a few years ago. One thing that she said to these girls has been forever embedded in my mind and has always helped me to get thru the "tragedies" of life. She said this, "What happens to you in life is no where near as important as what you do with what happens to you in life."

    GOD bless you.

    You've learned the life lesson: Jehovah Jirah (God provides). What a nifty quilt...that pattern just sets off the fabrics in an awesome way. Keep looking forward! :-)
