Weekend Views :: Light and Dark

Winter is dark,
Yet each tiny spark
Brightens the way
To Christmas Day.

Shine little light
And show us the way
To the bright, bright light
Of Christmas day.

~Wynstones :: Winter

So much light and darkness this time of year; so much joy and worry.  I'm trying to find beautiful moments every day.  It was a cold, wet rainy day.  Katherine and I took a high through the woods and we loved seeing the water drip from the trees.  I'm really struggling with my anxiety right now and just want to pull away from everything outside of home and family and nature.  Say a prayer for me, if you feel like it.

I am so sorry to hear you are struggling. A lot of people seem to be right now. It's a good idea to retreat to the warmth of your home and to find beauty and something to appreciate and be grateful for everyday, especially when life feels heavy and worry takes hold. The tension takes hold of your body at it's weakest point - your back? And we suffer even more. My husband has back problems that reoccur when he holds things in or he feels like there is a heavy burden in his life. He has been told that it is lucky that he is sensitive because his back hurting is a sign that 'his thinking is off". Sometimes even if external things seem o.k, the internal struggle and anxiety is still there because of our worried thoughts ( often about the future...). Hold onto the light and it will hopefully lift the darkness. Some time to yourself doing something you enjoy, like your hike the other day is a good idea and some space for meditation or a walk can settle your anxiety if done regularly, especially in nature where beauty is everywhere. Of course Advent and the lights are also a beautiful space, so take refuge in that too..and in the beautiful things you do with and for your family. Take care Brandy. My thoughts are with you, Anna ( amothershares) I did comment on your last craft post but it never showed. Beautiful Mary!

You are so right. It is a sign that something needs to change. I'm trying to do that, and I've made some uncomfortable, but necessary changes this week. Thank you for your kind words!

A Blessed Wilderness

It was just like being in heaven, being in there. In those days there was no road. The park was all a blessed wilderness. I have often thought what a wonderful people we would have been if we had wanted to keep it that way.
