The wearing o’ the green…

Tis St. Paddy’s Day and all the world is Irish…

In honor of this feast day, I am sporting the lovely shade of influenza green and completely out of circulation.

The upside of this time out? I am blessed with time to ponder many things. I shall share a few of these musings:

  • Illness came upon me swiftly despite hand washing, rest, good food intake, etc. I am reminded once again, of my vulnerability, my mortality, and that life goes on without me trying to orchestrate it. Those are good reminders. 
  • I again wonder if I need to be engaged in a less wearing vocation.
  • Rest is a beautiful gift! It also allows me more intentional prayer time–also a gift.

So while I am sporting a less than fashionable face today, I am wearing the blessings of quiet and recuperation. 

And that is fine.

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!
