Today’s Five Minute Friday word is Grateful. I’m not following the instructions for 5 minute posts, but I am using the word Lisa-Jo Baker chose today (grateful)
I spent today at Healing Hands International here in Nashville in a Dorcas Workshop. In case you don’t remember Dorcas from the New Testament, she had a sewing ministry. You can read her story in Acts 9:36. She helped the poor, and when she died, the widows stood around her body crying. When Paul the Apostle arrived, they showed him the robes and clothes that she had made for them. There is more to the story — check it out!
In our church fellowship a Dorcas Ministry has always meant women who sew items to give away to those who need them. At Healing Hands they have organized several wonderful ministries to send essential clothing and other items to those in need around the world.
I am so grateful for the hands of women of all ages who created, crafted, and sewed in three days of workshops.
I continue to be grateful for the good work of the staff and volunteers of Healing Hands.
This post is primarily photos; I’ll write more about the projects next week.
