TODAY’S READING

Psalm 105:1-4

MESSAGE

My dear friend Barb makes quilts out of old T-shirts that carry special memories for their owners. One day while I was visiting her, she showed me a quilt she had made for her son that highlighted his high school sports.

When I told her of all the T-shirts that I had saved over the years, she graciously volunteered to make a quilt for me. I was thrilled and gratefully accepted. I finally had a purpose for all the old T-shirts that meant so much to me and held so many memories.

As I gathered the shirts, I realized that they all reminded me of the blessings God had given me throughout my life. I now have the T-shirt quilt on my bed, and what a joy it is! Every evening and morning as I get in or out of my bed, I review the T-shirts and thank God for my many good friends and loving family members who helped me make all those memories. I have found that giving thanks to my heavenly Father is a joyfully gratifying way to mark each day.
