Block 7 "Promises & Borders" BOM...

Thank you for all the love, compassion, and especially the prayers, you have offered since I shared of my dear friend Pam's death last week.
Please continue to uphold her family this week as the funeral draws near, and afterwards as they make the painful adjustment to life without their beloved wife, mother, daughter, and sister.

Promises & Borders 
Block 7
"A promise is a promise..."

What a fitting block this month, in light of Pam's passing from this momentary earthly life, into the fullness of life eternal with our Lord. 
Pam held fast to all God's promises, and knowing that His word foretold of the life to come for all those who trusted their lives to His Son, our Saviour Jesus Christ, she is now reaping the fullness of that promise.
That is the significance of this block. It's a reminder that even though we break our promises, God *never* breaks His.

This block runs across the width of the quilt, under rows 1 and 2.


Block 7 can be downloaded HERE.
If you have trouble with the download, please leave a comment with your email address, or email me privately,  and I will send it to you.

  5. I've continued praying for Pam's family and you every day Jenny. I've been thinking of you every day. Beautiful quilt block you designed. Hugs to you. love Annette

  6. Thinking of you all and praying for you. One of our bible study group experienced the same scenario a few years ago. While she met with us her lovely daughter just slipped into the presence of Jesus as she and her husband prepared for bed. Such a strong faithful and lovely christian, but the days ordained for her were over and it was time to go to heaven. This is so difficult for friends and family. Will continue to pray for Gordon and the children x x

  7. Missed the log about your dear friend, wish you and all that loved her strenght and Gods help to overcome this loss.

It's always nice to receive feedback on a blog post, so *thank you* for taking time to comment!
I will try to reply via email unless you are a 'no reply blogger' which means you'll have to check for my reply in the comments. Of course, life is a rather hazardous activity, isn't it? So if I don't respond to your comment that's the reason why - life simply stepped in...
