Mercy Shine

quilt: mercy shine

Daily wash n’ wear.

Take each day as a gift from God;
wrapping it in His promises.
At eventide, return His gift,
counting your blessings.

“But after that the kindness and love of God our Saviour toward man appeared,

Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost;

Which he shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Saviour;”
Titus 3:4-6 KJV



pure healing

After days of quiet presence, Susanna saw a spark of trust in Orion as he allowed her to clean one of his wounds.

“Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water.”
Hebrews 10:22 KJV


restful runaways

“I washed and wrapped his cuts in strips from my clothes,” June explained to Montana. “I, I’m r-r-ready to c-c-ome home.” Together, they lifted Orion and carried him back to the ranch.

“He shall spare the poor and needy, and shall save the souls of the needy.

He shall redeem their soul from deceit and violence: and precious shall their blood be in his sight.”
Psalm 72:13, 14 KJV

“Bear ye one another’s burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ.”
Galatians 6:2 KJV


fluff and fold

June’s uncle owned the town’s laundry where Susanna found work. Her tears often mixed with the sweat and steam of the laundry. Wasn’t Orchard Valley where God wanted her to be? Had He ever tried to move a mountain of wet sheets and shirts?

“Are not Abana and Pharpar, rivers of Damascus, better than all the waters of Israel? may I not wash in them, and be clean? So he turned and went away in a rage.

And his servants came near, and spake unto him, and said, My father, if the prophet had bid thee do some great thing, wouldest thou not have done it? how much rather then, when he saith to thee, Wash, and be clean?”
2 Kings 5:12, 13 KJV
