"Bind the Brokenhearted"

20-3/4 x 30-3/4 inches

"This raw quilt is frayed with emotion and incomplete understanding. It is an expression of my grief over losing my dear grandmother on January 6, 2006 ending five years of great suffering. I never knew my heart made it's own tears until I felt it melting in my chest after her death. I clearly see it isn't my strength that continues to heal me, but the promises of my Lord:

"You keep track of all my sorrows. You have collected all my tears in your bottle. You have recorded each one in your book." Psalm 56:8 NLT

"The Spirit of the Lord [is] upon me, beccause he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recoving of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised..." Luke 4:18
