Prayers in Cloth

Recently, I’ve been immersed in advocacy for people with developmental disabilities here in Maine. You can see what’s happening here:

Last spring, I met some families facing the same over the cliff “waitlist” time after school ends that our family experienced back in 2013. Something in me was galvanized when I realized the challenge wasn’t just our family. It was the system. So for about 9 months, some parents and a great legislator have been advocating to change things at the legislative level. It still has some hurdles to face, but it is more hopeful by the day that better things will happen.

When I need stress relief, I go to fabric stores. And sometimes I buy fabric! 😂. Today I went down to my workplace to try to get to organized for the project that I put on hold, and I saw the pile of fabrics that I had purchased these past six months.

Through the almost 250 years at our country has been here. Women have expressed their thoughts, their beliefs, and their feelings through textiles. Can you see how I’ve been praying in fabric?

I'd never thought about this - praying in fabric. I just came downstairs from wading through a cupboard full of fabric, bought over the past 20 years or more. Yes - buying it can compare to praying, as in the hoping of something unseen, waiting to materialize. Materialize! Oh my goodness.

Oremus pro invicem!!
