Watchful Weaving: An Angel Message

You might have noticed a big gap in my blogging last month.  It just wasn't happening.  Nature kept showing up, but I was feeling flat.  Then something else creative snagged my attention. Suddenly with the help of a neighbor, I got hooked on relearning to crochet.

What began as a skinny 56-ft. long blue chain of yarn, steadily began to shape into a birthday gift for my son.  Racing the clock, one afternoon, I happened to look up.  

A big garden spider was on the sun-room slider, looking in at me.  I laughed.  

The conversation had been on creativity, and here was the spider cheering me on.   Create! Create! Create!  Spider teaches that everything that you do now is weaving what you will encounter in the future.

Line upon line, precept upon precept, here a little, there a little, the goal is reached.  When the royal blue afghan was finished in less than two weeks, perseverance and patience had paid off.  And, in hindsight,  almost a mile of yarn had been woven in a labor of love, building muscles I didn't know I had. :-D

The angels remind us to take it one day at a time, to do our best, and leave the rest to God.  Expect the best.  Heavenly help is near, offering comfort, strength, wisdom, and guidance.  All is well. 

Peace and Love,
