My heart is saddened by hate and violence. My heart is touched when someone reaches out to help or show love to others.
This morning while reading blogs, one touched me. Lisa, at In the Boon Docks, mentioned that the Orlando Modern Quilt Guild is collecting for the survivors and families of the victims of the shooting at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando. So, following the link I found more information. There is a list of things that would help. I have opted to make some blocks as I have lots of fabric and can do that for them. The request for blocks is that they have a heart or hearts on them; bright -preferably rainbow colors; and make them 10.5 inches (finish to 10 inches.)
So, I grabbed a rainbow of colors and cut strips. Then I made them into blocks. But first a test block:
My heart goes out to the family and friends of those who lost loved ones - and to the survivors who surely need to be assured that the world is not a terrible place; that they are loved; that they are important. I don't talk about my religious beliefs on my blog usually, but I have seen such hate spewed from people who claim to be Christians that I must say this. Jesus specifically told us to LOVE others. We are also told that judgement is not ours but God's.
Now I ask you, please do not post any negative comments. It will hurt my heart, but I will heal and I will delete them. As this is "my house" on the internet, I do get some say in what is said here. I appreciate those of you who understand.
