The bear I made was from a wool coat Genie Lowe wore a lot. It was unnerving for me to cut into a perfectly good coat and it caused a bit of anxiety because I knew I wasn't able to get more fabric if I made a mistake!
It turns out I had enough fabric with a little left over and this was the end result.
|Memory Bear for her son, Tom.|
Genie Lowe was a precious lady who dedicated the last 30 years of her life to handing out New Testaments to the Jewish people. She had such a heart for sharing the good news with them. Many years ago Genie prayed for her niece, Joy, to receive Christ, which she did at 13 years of age. Years later Joy then prayed with her son to receive Christ when he was only 5 years old. Then, her son led me to Christ when we were dating in college. I was 20 years old and we were married a year later! Can you see the impact of one person praying? I thank God for Genie, and the life she lived serving the Lord. She is such an inspiration. To learn more about her life please watch the video . . .
