“Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice. Let your reasonableness be known to everyone. The Lord is at hand; do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things. What you have learned and received and heard and seen in me—practice these things, and the God of peace will be with you.”
Philippians 4:4-9 ESV
For those interested in helping with the face mask shortage:
UC Berkeley School of Public Health has created a real time database (link below) of US hospitals and other facilities calling for homemade face masks. Texas only has two hospitals listed as of today, and I know there are many more than that, so even if you don’t sew, you can help by sharing this database with any healthcare administrator or sewing enthusiast who might use it. If you are interested in helping sew face masks, there are many addresses listed where you can ship them.
Amanda Wolf is making double layered 100% tight cotton with double layered interface mask, that are hand washable. If any of the elderly or compromised would like one please contact Amanda at 940-781-8119 or Dana at 940-631-7916
