Baby Henry!

It is Spring Break!!! oh how lovely to spend the day sipping coffee, reading a Grace Livingston Hill novel from the library, watching Sherlock Holmes movies with DH, knitting and spinning with Lindy!  and that doesn't even mention knit night tonight!  Don't get me wrong, I like what I do, but a really break is wonderful too!  

On the knitting needles is a baby blanket....


...for little Henry.   I lady started coming to our church right about when I got back from Scotland.  I really haven't had much of a chance to visit with her, and then we got news that she had her baby.  He is a premie being born just over 3 lbs, but seems to be hanging in there and doing okay.   The ladies of the church are throwing her a surprise shower the Sunday after Easter.  I know this little guy needs prayer and when I knit I pray.  So this baby blanket was quickly cast on!

My prayer for Henry....Lord may this little guy grow up to know you and know how precious he is to you.  Lord strengthen his body and protect his developement.  Lord show us how to reach out to this new mom to show her your love and share the gospel.  Lord, we know no one is worthy to stand in your presence, we have been separating from you by our sin.  Thank you for sending a savior, Jesus, to pay the debt of our sins making us able to stand before you blameless.  Lord it is a love we don't deserve, but are so thankful for.  May Henry grow to learn this, so he to can be a part of your family!  Amen.

I love love love this blanket. My mother in law knit one of my children one just like it and it is so soft and cushy.

A hand knit blanket and a prayer is just what little Henry and his mother need right now. What an encouragement at a stressful time!

Cute! This sounds like a perfect present for little Henry. We'll be praying for him too.

Amen, and as the grandmother of an almost 5 year old boy who was born 11 weeks early weighing only 3 pounds I can say chances are Henry will also grow to be a JOY to everyone around him.
