‘Tis the eve….

Ah, ’tis the eve of the New year…a time for revelry, glitz, food and spirits;

An opportunity to breathe in the last scents of a year grown old and tired;

A chance to wax poetic, sentimental, honest, hopeful.

With the exception of the glitz and revelry, I shall embark on my New Year’s preparations:

  • Parmesan crusted beef tenderloin, baked yams, a pear, spinach and pomegranate salad
  • A glowing fire to nurture us in the waning hours of 2014
  • The warmth of blessed time with my best friend and spouse

No finery for this peacock tonight–it is a time to rest and reminisce on the good that has been, the hopes of good to come, and a few growing edges.

If you are interested in those hopes and strivings, check in tomorrow.

Have a sacred celebration tonight…

I am a fabric artist and a professional minister in the Catholic Church. I am married for 40+ years to a most fabulous man. We have 4 adult children, 2 daughter-in-laws ( who we also consider to our children!) and 4 grandbabies. I love to weave, paint silk, sew and design garments for myself; bead, read, write and color. I am also a spiritual Companion/Director and have a special place in my soul for women who are healing and in need of healing from trauma and abuse. I love coffee, quiet reflective prayer time at my kitchen table and long walks to breathe in the Holy Spirit. I would like to learn how to spin yarn and will someday create a spun, hand dyed/painted, beaded, woven fabulous garment of peace!
