|see your light|
i came across this yesterday and it sort of spoke to what i was feeling. i like the description:
Sometimes we need a traveling companion to remind us to be present to the beauty and truth that surround us. We need to be reminded to shine a light on what is real, to heal, to dance inside joy. We need to be gently pushed to find our way to laughter and fill the cracks that life creates. We need an invitation to stand tall and give ourselves permission to rest.
very pretty. i have always liked that the quakers refer to god as light. i like that concept because it is all around us and inside of us too. it is the hope you have, even in the darkest of times.
last night i spent some time going through old photographs. i'm trying to pick some to have printed and buy some frames to put around the house. i have a few photos of the kids up, but not enough. i want them to look around and visually see they are loved and important. i love a house with photos in it. it always gives you such a wonderful sense of the people inside. i'm not sure why i haven't done this more myself? here are a few i like so far...
