Soul Warming

Love came down at Christmas,
Love all lovely, love divine;
Love was born at Christmas,
Star and angels gave the sign.

Worship we the Godhead,
Love incarnate, love divine;
Worship we our Jesus:
But wherewith for sacred sign?

Love shall be our token,
Love be yours and love be mine,
Love to God and all men,
Love for plea and gift and sign.
Christina Georgina Rossetti, 1885

A number of very caring church ladies sewed 60 lap quilts and presented them to residents of a long-term care home. Each and every quilt was bestowed with love and blessings. All faces beamed with joy, whether giving or receiving such a thoughtful gift. The beautiful quilts warmed everyone's soul, even those observing from the sidelines.
