Do you ever feel like your inner joy has decided to take the day off? I guess sometimes it happens to all of us. When I mentioned that to a friend last week, she gifted me with a book to encourage and inspire.
Page 14 is actually entitled Source of Joy.
Many are asking, "Who can show us any good?"
Let the light of your face shine upon us, O LORD,
You have filled my heart
with greater joy than when their grain and
new wine abound.
I made the tag above using one of my favorite quotes from Emily Dickinson:
HOPE is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul
And sings the tune --
without the words,
And never stops at all.
And this little stitching I finished last night reminds of the birds outside my window.
I haven't cross-stitched in a while so there are a few mistakes but that's okay.
My imperfections and failures are as much a blessing from God as my successes and my talents and I lay them both at his feet. ~ Mahatma Ghandi
