Following last week’s blog post about the
healing power of QCA, I received an onslaught of stories from many other
members. I am so grateful they have trusted me to share their stories with all
of you. Once again, I stand (or sit…I have a desk job) astounded at how an Internet
community can make a large difference in someone’s life.
The following is another story from a beloved
past December, when my boyfriend was dying, all I could do was ask for prayers
from everyone I could think of. All of the wonderful ladies on QCA were so
willing to send theirs. I had never met any of them, had never even spoken to
any of them other than on the QCA forums, but they were there for me and for
It was Christmastime, and I was dealing with a
broken ankle. I hadn't seen Patrick for three weeks because he had been ill and
I couldn't drive. He was on life support for a week following his suicide
attempt and that whole time I depended on the QCA ladies' prayers to ask God to
help Patrick, his family, and me. It's still so hard to think of this time but
I often go back to the posts. They give me comfort when I need it most.
someone on QCA is going through a tough time, the ladies make quilt blocks and
the quilt is assembled by one of the members. These ladies made me a beautiful
quilt and I received it in May when a good friend from QCA came to visit. I
keep the quilt on my bed and wrap it around me whenever I need a hug!
