May God's grace be upon this shawl ...
enfolding and embracing.
May this mantle be a safe haven ...
a sacred place of security and well-being ...
sustaining and embracing in good times as well as difficult ones.
May the one who receives this shawl
be cradled in hope, kept in joy, graced with peace,
and wrapped in love.
Blessed Be!— Janet Bristow in Knitting into the Mystery by Susan S. Jorgensen, Susan S. Izard
