Prayer Shawls

May 11th, 2011

5-11-11A few months ago, during my visit to Millridge School in Mayfield Heights, Ohio, I received a call from Janelle, a mother of one of the students. Her young son Jake, had seen my presentation, including the puppet show, during my visit. Our visit had a big impact on him and he talked about it for quite some time. Janelle wanted to return the favor. She is a member of a group of moms who gets together and knits. One of the items she likes to make most is a prayer shawl. She said that during the knitting and after each prayer shawl is complete, the group prays that the person who receives the prayer shawl will be protected from harm. I received four prayer shawls, one for myself and three to gift to others during my travels. Thank you Janelle and moms, for such a thoughtful gesture of kindness.
