Racine Seamstress Makes Masks for Community
Contributed by: Sindy Howell-Stewart
When I heard about sharing good works, through Share Lemonade, I knew immediately that my sister Debra deserved the spotlight.
Sewing since junior high, she was blessed to find her gift early in life. After retiring from Emerson/Insinkerator, she continued to be a seamstress for many around Wisconsin. When she heard of the need for face masks, she jumped into action. For the past three months, she has made masks free of charge for friends and neighbors in the community, as well as the Racine Police Department, nurses and doctors.
It’s not a good thing, this virus, but what it has done is brought out the fact that we truly are all in this together. My sister is making Lemonade and our family is so proud of her!
And I just want her to know that God knows her heart and the hearts of others doing the same:
“For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.” Ephesians 2:10. These are works done, not in our own strength and for our own benefit, but by the grace of God and in obedience to Him – led by the Holy Spirit, to God’s glory.
