In this collection, each story represents a piece of a quilt. Each time a grandmother, the central character, prepared to sow a quilt piece, she would end up turning to her Bible and be inspired to tell a story that represents a piece of this literary quilt. Grandmother reads her Bible to ease the pain of feeling like her life and loves had all been past and she was alone reminiscing about real Christmases from her past that brought her real joy from yesteryear. Today her joy was as withered as her skin and her heart aches like her knees. But, as she reads about the virgin, thoughts of what really matters is rekindled in her. Her journey forward opens up a way to demonstrate life lessons. At the end, she folds up her quilted blankets and leaves the house to share her renewed joy and the completed quilt with children in a shelter. She leaves them with something to keep them physically and spiritually warm. Bishop Jakes draws ten life lessons from the virgin birth story that would help people enjoy Christmas in spite of circumstances they cannot control. This is a special literary offering by the Bishop to all kinds of listeners, especially those who consider Christmas the most special holiday of the year.
