Don't let the difficulties of the present moments overshadow the reality of God's promises. God's promises still stand. And God's promises are stronger than our failures.

Stars For A Soldier


John'aLee of The Scrappy Appleyard has posted a request for 8.5" star quilt blocks.  Her DD's fiance, Chris, was killed in Afghanistan shortly before he was due to return home.  Chris was buried just days before what would have been his and Tory's wedding day.  John'aLee would like to make quilts for her daughter Tory, Chris' mom, his two brothers, and his best friend who was in Afghanistan and with Chris when he was shot and killed.  
Quilters have the biggest hearts - If you are at all interested in participating please read John'aLee's post at The Scrappy Appleyard.  Our military folks do so much for us...this is just a small thing we can do to help repay one family.

I cut out my squares last night and plan to sew them up later after the Scottmeister takes his 3 hr. nap!! I am so broken hearted over Tori's loss...so very sad but unfortunately all too familiar for many families across our great country. God Blees our soldiers!
Blessings
