Second Sunday in Advent- Love

Thanks to Mary Rodriguez for the beautiful photo

Dear Lord,
Through the darkness, I look for your wisdom.
I want my heart to be open to you.
But sometimes in these days, it seems that
so many things come between us.
Help me to be awake and aware
of the radiance you bring to my life.
Help me to be grateful each day
for the blessings of family and friends.
Let me be a peacemaker
in my own life, and in the world.
Let me pray especially for this difficult world
and those who are so in need of an end to violence.
My heart begs for this as my Advent prayer today.

A Gift

DH's niece lives in Chicago with her partner, and have a round table.  I hope this is a good topper, and that they like it.  It gave me joy to make it.

Eye See You

Just a little humor for the day.  The picture of Elizabeth I has her wearing a dress with ears and eyes on it, symbolizing her ability to see and hear everything everywhere, the all knowing monarch.  The giant eyeball pincushion was inspired by this portrait.... we were given a challenge to make a pincushion inspired by something medieval.... a bit wide open, eh?  This is my response.  I really am not in a serious mood, I need some levity.

There was no good outcome to this election.  I must find the light within myself and hope for healing.
