Sometimes Monday . . .

looks like playing with shadows and solar eclipse glasses.

It was the first day of in-service at work and everyone was very distracted. I felt a bit sorry for the workshop leader but she really rolled with it. We kept wandering outside to see what was happening in the sky. We were at the 90% point but it never got too dark. There was an odd stillness and it got cold! I am so happy that my husband thought to get special glasses for the whole family!

Sunday Treasure


“If your heart is broken, you’ll find GOD right there; if you’re kicked in the gut, he’ll help you catch your breath.”‭‭Psalm‬ ‭34:18‬ ‭MSG‬‬

I didn’t notice the subtle shift.  My head and my heart seemed to be settling down.  There was finally a place to catch my breath.  As I reflect on the days behind, I see that they each held a small treasure: a good book; a simple hat on the needles; a wonderful evening of stories about community and knitting; a sweet time introducing our tiny person to his great grampa; the quiet, loving presence of my husband and daughters.  

This morning I remembered this simple wall quilt and I know that later today, I will pull out a piece of linen and begin stitching something new.
