The Upper Room Daily Devotional 16 September 2022 MESSAGE

My dear friend Barb makes quilts out of old T-shirts that carry special memories for their owners. One day while I was visiting her, she showed me a quilt she had made for her son that highlighted his high school sports. When I told her of all the T-shirts that I had saved over the years, she graciously volunteered to make a quilt for me. I was thrilled and gratefully accepted. I finally had a purpose for all the old T-shirts that meant so much to me and held so many memories.

As I gathered the shirts, I realized that they all reminded me of the blessings God had given me throughout my life. I now have the T-shirt quilt on my bed, and what a joy it is! Every evening and morning as I get in or out of my bed, I review the T-shirts and thank God for my many good friends and loving family members who helped me make all those memories. I have found that giving thanks to my heavenly Father is a joyfully gratifying way to mark each day.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear heavenly Father, thank you for daily reminders of the blessings you have given us. Thank you for bringing us comfort and showing us your love. Amen.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY
Today I thank God for my loved ones and the joys we have shared.

PRAYER FOCUS
To recognize God’s love and blessings
