Mrs. M. wakes up.  She drinks milk.  She puts on pearl earrings.  Then she knits!  She takes a break for lunch and a nap.  She knits some more.

She gives scarves to those in need.

Pray: Thank God for those who live their lives to bless others.

Ioanna Matsouka is 93. She lives in Athens, Greece. She started knitting about 30 years ago. She has made more than 3,000 scarves. She gave scarves as gifts to friends. Then she donated some to children’s shelters across Greece. She learned how to give them to children in Bosnia and Ukraine. A batch of 70 went to a refugee camp near Athens. Mrs. Matsouka knits one scarf per day. People send her thank you cards. Giving scarves away brings her joy.

“It is more blessed to give than to receive.” (Acts 20:35)
