What a rich heritage of faith you have described here. The idea of the prayer quilt touched my heart.
Well done my friend, a lovely warm story. She must have been a special lady. Amazing what our grandparents endured and yet they came through! Love Norms

This was an excellent historical insight into the life of a faithful Christian lady and her influence on her wider family. I felt that it was spoiled slightly by the first line in that you particularly highlighted grandmothers as being round God’s throne, a comment that could put some people off and one that didn’t really add to the narrative. (In my particular case my two grandfathers were more persistent in prayers than their wives and I think it varies from marriage to marriage) That aside I enjoyed your contribution and look forward to seeing how it does.

What nice memories! How loved you must have felt, having her prayers wrapped around you.
