Made with Love

Made with Love

Our church building sits a block from Angels Unaware, which serves mentally and physically challenged adults.

Even before we moved into our building about 10 years ago, our congregation’s women had helped Angels Unaware in various ways. We adopt them each Christmas, giving each client four to five gifts and supplying larger items for the kitchen and living room. Sometimes we take refreshments and sing for them. Though most don’t speak, they show their joy and love of music by smiling and rocking to the rhythm.

The first time we were there, I noticed the clothing protectors (adult bibs) were dingy and worn out, so I made a dozen from hand towels.

Those in charge were very happy to receive them. Recently I mentioned to our pastor that I was getting ready to make some more. She suggested I get our ladies to help. I said, “OK,” but most don’t sew.

Finally, I decided to have them cut the necklines and pin on the bias tape.

We worked on them for several hours one Saturday morning. During this time we also enjoyed visiting with one another. The rest were finished at home. When they were done, we had 38—each made with love.
