Happy New Year, friends! Glorious Holiday Decor to Pin & Inspiring Quotes celebrates beautiful Christmas decor and creativity from creators around the web. I hope you’ll pin them along with quotes that resonate. As I type this, there is a royal feast happening outside my window. I sprinkled homemade sourdough on the snow and around the trees for my woodland creatures. The cardinals came first. Then squirrels and crows. Even a hawk. What a treat to watch a chubby squirrel savor it, balancing on a rung of my arbor near our kitchen window seat. For me, it’s heaven. My house and spirit are calming as my thoughts turn to those of you who may be pondering the fresh year. I’ll have important secrets to share in 2022, but for now I wish you peace, right where you are.

Words of Faith & Wisdom
This is my prayer. We are all working so hard to move through the chaos of the 2020s, through relationship stife, through health battles. How can we yield to the Spirit’s moving in more life sustaining ways?
I honestly have few answers. But I know that by becoming softer and yielding, Spirit can move through us, through, the problems, through those hidden obstacles. I know that we can cultivate an inner landscape of beauty and become more permeable to the mystery.
For me, it is those daily rhythms and practices weaved into my ordinary life and labors that increase the beauty of such an inner landscape. I’m not doing any sort of creating by myself. Yet I’m participating; I’m open to an infinite source of love and flow.
