A quilt is a simple thing– cotton on two sides and some batting between the cotton layers. However, it takes time to decide on a pattern, plan and buy the material and thread, prewash the fabric, lay out and pin the material, cut it out, stitch it, finish the edges, and iron as you go. Organizing people to create quilts is fairly simple, too. Finding a way to ship the quilts can be a little more difficult– from a person carrying extra suitcases stuffed with quilts through customs into the Land– to packing them into a shipping carton traveling across the ocean on a freighter. Then there are helpers who give out the quilts to Holocaust survivors, widows, orphans, single parents– Israelis who have a need.
A quilt is a simple thing, but it represents time. I once heard that the way one spells love is simply T-I-M-E. Making or delivering a quilt reflects the time that one gives to another, sending warmth and hope and love in southern Israel from the Messiah. IBF is working every day in big and small ways to be a blessing in Israel to all in need there because of G-d’s love expressed through Messiah.
Today is the day to be a blessing. Today is the day to make a difference. Thank you for all you have done and are doing to stand up for Israel and her people.
May the L-rd, under Whose wings you have come to shelter, give you a full reward as you seek to be a blessing to Israelis who may or may not yet know Messiah Yeshua– but for whom a quilt sends a very tangible message of value and love from someone they might never meet in this life. May their and our eyes look continually at the King of the Universe Who transforms hearts and makes everything beautiful in His time.
