Colorful Threads

For some a struggle does ensue

As years begin their toll

Minds seared with pain and breaking

Hard tearing of the soul.


It’s at these times, perhaps a hint

Of humanness and care

Delivered to the suffering

Will bring light to darkness there.

The story goes some years ago

A Mom with hurting heart

Picked up a quilt her Grandma’d made

She feared she’d break apart.


As she held the quilt about her

Wrapped it gently round her being

She felt a peace and love intense

Cared for, sight unseeing.


And so the project started

Would those given such a gift

A Blanket of Love of their own

Feel a momentary lift?


Blankets of Love, over decades now

Collects quilts made by all volunteers

Delivered to those with mental illness

Bringing kindness through the tears.

Those who sleep under a quilt, sleep under a 

Blanket of Love
