Peace and Purpose

Popular right now on Instagram is generating your best nine photos of the year.
As you can see, mine is filled with color, crochet and hearts.  There's some of the drawings from when I participated in an index-card-a-day challenge during June/July, which was just that ... challenging.  (I plan to do more drawing and journaling in the new year.)  Then there sits Jingles ... she weaves her furry little self into every aspect of our lives as cats will do.  And finally, it's appropriate that the PEACE picture I took when we visited Jerusalem in September was included since the words PEACE and PURPOSE have been on my mind as words to guide me in the new year.
I contemplated all these things as I took my morning and walk and lo' and behold but what should appear.
The joyful heart sees and reads the world with a sense of freedom and graciousness.
John O'Donohue

Wishing you beautiful moments,
treasured memories,
And all the blessings a heart can know!
Happy New Year!

Tammy - your nine choices fit you well! It warmed my heart that I recognized most of the photos - I have enjoyed your blog and getting to know you through it this year. Peace and purpose - has a nice ring to it. I hope you have a wonderful New Year (perhaps by the time you read this it will already be after midnight your time).

Wishing you peace and love in 2018.
How do you make a best nine on Instagram? I have no idea how to generate such things or even to resend/share an IG post to someone else. Do you need to install a separate application or is it a special command word that you use?
I enjoyed seeing your postcard challenge. It seemed to be the perfect way to practice your artistic skills daily while giving you something practical.
It has been nice to get to know you through the blogosphere.
Happy New Year Tammy xx

Peace and Purpose. I like the sound of that. At this stage of my life I feel the need to work on the purpose a bit more. Your words will be good ones to keep in mind as we go into 2018.
Your IG nine are a cheerful and colorful compilation.
Wishing you a peaceful, purposeful and wonderful 2018.

I love new words for the year. Peace and Purpose are so necessary in our upside down world. Praying both for 2018. All you hearts are lovely.

Dearest Tammy,
What a lovely photo collage and no wonder that your colorful and cheerful photos are liked en masse!
Lovely Jingles is enjoying her time in your presence and they teach us also a lot, how to indulge in the moment.
As for Peace, more than ever this is a word that the entire world should pronounce out-loud for fully understanding its meaning!
Let's hope there will be more respect and understanding instead.
Hugs and Happy New Year and enjoy soon a very special day togetheršŸ˜‰
