Good morning everyone, the holidays are fast approaching. We are busy trying to settle back into a routine, and I am once more running the roads on errands. I am especially trying to beat the rush that will take place closer to the week-end, it will be impossible to find parking in the shopping mall parking lots. Already there is a sea of cars as far as the eye can see in the bigger centers near us.
Norm’s Thursday doors, is a huge interest to me, doors being so much a part of my life over the years. I am a keen buff on older homes, doors, windows and all that go along in the inspiration of my creative spirit.
The I found this collection of hand stitched works of art, sitting waiting to be framed in a thrift shop of all places. Someone had spent hours carefully building these charmers stitch by stitch. That to me is a true love of houses, windows and doors. Having attempted at one time this craft, I had full appreciation for the hours spent on putting these together.
If I have learned anything during the last few weeks, it is that what we see on the outside is not necessarily what is going on “inside” Our bodies house our “souls” the vibrant and vital energy this is our “lives”. The windows and doors, are the way we look out, and how we maneuver the in and outs of our journey through this life. In some ways they reflect our personalities .. many times, they are merely shelters. It is what goes on, inside the house, that makes it a home.
PL (Perfect Liberty) celebrates every 21st of the month, with a Thanksgiving ceremony. The service is dedicated to giving our appreciation and gratitude for the blessings we have received through the month. Think today as you read this, just how many blessings you have received in the last few days. There are always positives, we need only be receptive to them.
At first I was sad that the beautiful work someone had done was now in a Thrift Shop, then I realized that it was the joy in stitching that was the person’s pleasure, and now, I was happy in the discovery. Sharing his/her work with you, is also a “happy”… May the many little windows and doors open for you today.
Find the sunshine, find the happy, in your day. You will be blessed in many ways.
