A little dove of peace has come to rest on the pink inchies that I've been working on. While exploring earlier this week, I stopped in a store in Old Town Cottonwood that had a selection of these tiny mother of pearl bird beads ~ perfectly sized to fit an inchie!
I'm gathering the inchies in groups of nine and hoping to find some small, square, white frames in which to frame these.
It has been frosty and cold the past few mornings. The St. Francis statue on my patio looked so serene against the frosted landscape. This picture brings to mind the prayer of St. Francis:
Lord, make me an instrument of Your peace,
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
Where there is injury, pardon;
Where there is doubt, faith;
Where there is despair, hope;
Where there is darkness, light;
And where there is sadness, joy.
Peace to you, my friends.
