Morning moments

P1060617

Through the summer months, it is so light and nice in the mornings, mostly,  but suddenly it is time to light morning candles again.

Besides being pretty, a candle also can be source for morning meditation and serenity on happenings and upcoming happenings.
One can be prepared for the unexpected, sort of .

It is like they say on the airplanes - you are supposed to help yourself to oxygen when in need, before helping the person next to you.

P1060611 Maybe it was sort of a serendipity that I forgot to bring my stitchery thread back home with me from Quilt Café at Lappemakeriet on Tuesday ??
Anyway, the seamen are benefiting - as of this morning I had 6 more done since Tuesday and 10 to go! P1060613

I am going easy on my shoulder - hand piecing is good :-)

**********

Saying for today:

God, give us the grace to accept with serenity the things that cannot be changed,
courage to change the things which should be changed,
and the wisdom to distinguish the one from the other.

I join you in your morning meditation. And I will have a stitch or two with you as well.

You are making real progress on your seaman. I have learned from your example to have few projects at one time and when possible to stay with a project till it is done. Soon you will have two finishes to share.
