Little bits of time,
Every single day creates
When I originally “planned” this year of stitching, I had something much different in mind. And, so I began with that plan, but I was not happy with how it looked and so over the course of the first days of winter my stitching changed. I did not remove the parts I did not like, but rather I incorporated them into the design.
They are a good reminder for me, don’t undo – improve!
Winter had lots of snow, a good bit of sunshine to temper the grey days, swirling winds, and so many birds. I love the memories that this stitching holds.
We are not here to curse the darkness, but to light the candle that can guide us thru that darkness to a safe and sane future. John F. Kennedy
This weekend the light at the end of the tunnel grew profoundly brighter.
I spent a bit of time watching the televised March for Life on Saturday and these kids filled me with hope. Their eloquence, their passion, and their vision for the future is moving. Change is coming and in an overwhelming way.
Thanks to these amazing children, I am no longer cursing the darkness but following their light to a safe and sane future.
Even their silence is compelling.
I was struck by this thought on Saturday, these children are the answer to all those politicians who believed that thoughts and prayers were the solution: The wolf shall live with the lamb, the leopard shall lie down with the kid, the calf and the lion and the fatling together, and a little child shall lead them. Isaiah 11:6
I too think those leaders should be shaking and yes, getting their resumes ready! Change is coming, and it is full of hope!
Have a hope-filled Monday!
P.S. Michigan in the Final Four is not bad either! GO BLUE!
