The Widow’s Mite
Although Margie Davis is an older woman who lives on a very small income and is limited physically, she is a dedicated prayer warrior who uses her talents for good. Davis makes beautiful hand-crafted items and donates them to the church, with all proceeds going to the church budget. Recently she made a beautiful large quilt for a member. As she was praying, the Lord gave her some wonderful, spiritual insights into the meaning of each item in the quilt, Ships on the Sea of Life. Here is the spiritual insight she was given for the quilt: Ships: Humanity on the Sea of Life; Color of Ships: all the nationalities in the world; Fabric Patterns: different physical features of humanity; Water: the sea of life; Pieced blocks: God takes our broken lives and puts us back together; Gray backing: Jesus is always there backing us up; Batting: Without the Holy Spirit in us, we are an empty shell; Yellow Stripes: After the storm, the Son shines brighter; Stitches: Prayer holds us together with people all over the world; Completed Quilt: God’s love for all humanity shines through.
