Embracing the New Year

As we begin to turn the page on 2020, and Christmastide is fully present, I came across the following that spoke to me this morning.

The Work of Christmas

When the song of the angels is stilled. When the star in the sky is gone. When the kings and princes are home. When the shepherds are back with their flock. The work of Christmas begins.

To find the lost. To heal the broken. To feed the hungry. To release the prisoner. To rebuild the nations. To bring peace among others. To make music in the heart.

–Howard Thurman

We have been presented with so many opportunities to witness these actions of Christmas work this past year. Thank you to our front line workers: the food banks, the schools, the medical professionals on all levels, the music makers who have found ways to connect through technology and those family members and friends who have reached out through Zoom or Face Time. Let’s keep taking steps to move forward and continue.

If you have been following my blog, you have probably noticed that I have been away for the past few weeks. Life gives us winding paths and these past weeks I have been taking care of matters that needed my full attention. I am now feeling I can return to As You Wish Stones and begin posting once more.

Thank you so much for visiting! If you see something on the website that you like, or have a special request, reach out and let’s get something designed for you.

I have just received my newest order of stones this morning. They are calling me to paint.

See you tomorrow!
