Coffee Lovers

Picture by Isaiah Barry

Today my mom delivered the quilt she made for our anniversary. I was very excited and love it! John and I both love coffee, and as you can see she picked the fabrics to suit our taste!
To me a quilt is like a scrapbook of treasured moments. It is a reminder of friends and family who have touched my heart. Fond (and sometimes funny) memories are stitched within the borders. It is a covering of prayer pieced together in every block.
When we snuggle under this beautiful quilt tonight I will have many good memories to be thankful for and many people to pray for. It reminds me of all the coffee dates John and I had while dating, of my first cup of coffee with my Daddy, of Costa Rica, and of our first house... and as I fall off to sleep I will say a prayer of thanksgiving for John, the love of my life, who for the last six years has shared many a cup of coffee. I will thank God for my parents who lift our family up in prayers daily!

Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus.
1 Thessalonians 5:17
