San Diego Fires

Like all of us, I have been deeply touched by the horrendous wild fires of last week in Southern California. My thoughts and prayers have been with all of those who have lost their homes, their pets, precious memories and, worst of all loved ones. I made this quilt over the weekend to mark the time lest we forget this tragedy.

Praise Wall

Today was the inauguration of the Praise Wall at my church. This quilt "We Lift Our Praises" forms the centerpiece for the wall.

So here I am in the place of worship, eyes open, drinking in your strength and glory. In your generous love I am really living at last! My lips brim praises like fountains. I bless you every time I take a breath; My arms wave like banners of praise to you.
Psalm 63:2-4 (The Message)

Over the next several weeks, our church members, staff, friends and visitors will fill out praise cards and they will be pinned to the long banners that hang on either side of the quilt. Below is a picture of the Praise Wall with just 3 praises posted so far.
