I learned they didn't live that far from my parents so I made arrangements for my husband and I to pay them a visit and deliver the photograph she requested. Praise God we arrived at a time Mr. Truxal was awake, alert, and open to receiving visitors. I laid the quilt over his lap and began telling its story, God's Story, the Gospel message, through the quilt, to Mr. Truxal, his wife, and his grandson.
I believe the Holy Spirit was sharing specific messages to help them through this difficult time. Before we left, with the quilt still laid over Mr. Truxal's lap, we had the privilege of praying with them. As you think of them, will you lift them up in your prayers too?
