Word Ghosts know about patterns

” I have come to believe that we do not walk alone in this life. There are others, fellow sojourners, whose journeys are interwoven with ours in seemingly random patterns, yet, in the end, have been carefully placed to reveal a remarkable tapestry. I believe God is the weaver at that loom.”

Pursuit of Happiness

Pursuit of Happiness -Spirituality

Dear Fellow Crafters,

July is the month of Spirituality. I’m sure that at first “glance” the idea of spirituality read religion  may seem to be out-of-place when you think of crafting but I’ll bet if you read on you’ll understand the “pull” of this topic.

For those of you who attend church, temple or other houses of worship, think back to a time when the music moved you. Sometimes a prayer, sermon or just the surroundings can inspire you. If you don’t go to church, do you watch a minister on TV?

Do you have a place that you go to reflect or pray? There’s a retreat house in CT that I have gone to for 15+ years now and people are always asking me why. “Why go so far away?” ” Why every year?” I tell them that it’s my second home. I feel close to God there and the combination of the peaceful surroundings, companionship, talks and music help me reconnect with my faith. My faith journal always accompanies me. I will be reviewing a book by Ortberg entitled “If you want to walk on water you have to get out of the boat.” If you would like to read the review it will be on my blog:  uniquelyyourscraftjournal@wordpress.com

If You Want to Walk on Water, You've Got to Get Out of the Boat  -     By: John Ortberg<br /><br /><br /><br /><br />

“We make our journeys by hope and faith; hope that our walk will be worthy of our steps and faith that we are going somewhere.”

“Walking on water” by Richard Paul Evans

‘Til next time,
