A Kind Heart...

Our own special onlineauction.com seller, Kornkountrytreasures, is making and selling these beautiful, inspirational "Prayer Doilys" to benefit the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.






Here is the story:


"On December 27, 2012, our lives were turned upside down when my husband was diagnosed with leukemia. Acute Myloid Leukemia, or AML, to be exact. And there are so many different subtypes and things to learn about leukemia!

During his hospital stays, we have met some remarkable people!! Liz is one of those people, another patient in the cancer ward, fighting lymphoma for the second time.

Liz knitted "Prayer Squares" and gave us one!! I traded her some doilys. She is such a sweetheart and an inspiration! This gave me an idea for all those doilys that I love to crochet but never know what to do with!! So, I have turned them into "Prayer Doilys" and all proceeds from the sales are going to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society And I will be making more during those hospital stays!!!
http://www.onlineauction.com/auction/1647468http://www.onlineauction.com/auction/1647472Each one is a little different, either in color combinations or pattern. This particular doily is about 7 1/2" wide and crocheted with new 100% cotton thread.

Attached with a ribbon, is a card that says:

Prayer Doily
"Fear thou not; for I am with thee; be not dismayed' for I am thy God; I will stregthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness." Isaiah 41:10.

On the other side, it says:

The Lord will provide,
His message is clear,
In His love abide,
Dispel all your fear.

Jesus hears your prayer. You can trust in Him."

This is a great little gift for someone in need of a word of hope and encouragement. Please consider this as a way to help someone and help the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
