What a blessing

I just love Godly women!!! Yesterday, I was so blessed to be invited to spend time with one!! Mrs. Tolleson invited me over to her house. She wanted to give me something that she had made me. I wasn't sure what to expect, but I was SO hoping that she had made me a quilt. When I walked into her house, it was so peaceful. We headed to the kitchen to sit down and have some pie. She shared with me all the things that the Lord was doing in her life. WOW...God sure is at work! It was challenging for me to sit across from her and not reach out and touch her. I felt like I was sitting so close to Jesus!!! She KNOWS Him so intimately!! We talked a lot about how things are going here at my house. She is very wise!!! She gave me some great advice and wants to meet again next month to see how I am doing!!! I felt so special sitting there, because she took TIME to spend with me!! After we talked (for not nearly long enough), it was time for her to give me my gift!

Mrs. Tolleson made me a beautiful Christmas quilt!!! I can't wait to pull it out this Christmas season. I will remember our time together many times between now and then!! Thank you, Mrs. Tolleson for making me feel so loved!!!!

I love your new quilt - it's so beautiful! I've always thought it would be fun to have a Christmas quilt for my bed.

What a blessing! She truly is a Titus 2 woman, taking the time to feed into the life of a younger woman. And that quilt is gorgeous! You are one blessed woman! :)

Mrs. Tolleson was so kind to have shared her time and talents with you. It really warms my heart to hear that you are being taken care of when I can't be there. I hope to meet this lovely lady when I come to visit. The quilt is gorgeous and so uplifting and you are so blessed. I know you will cherish it for many years to come.
I love you sweetheart.
