The Quilt represents the next stage in my transformation. Once I was able to hold onto hope long enough, I broke free from the chins of hell that I had resided in for too long.
I felt Gods love surround and protect me, just like a warm quilt. Armored with his love and strength, I was able to get into my car and leave the abuse behind. With each mile that separated me from that emptiness, I felt my heart swell and my soul begin to fly.
As each day passes on this journey forward, I am once again finding the vibrant colors in life. Piece by piece, I am finding myself again. No journey is smooth but with each obstacle I know that God is there, surrounding me with his love and helping to guide the way. I know that I will never be left out in the cold again!
