WIP – Winter in my Garden

Winter in my Garden

Hi Friends,

Well, I’ve finished the second row of seedlings.  Now I’m moving on to the stool and pots and plans on the floor of the greenhouse.  I’m a little over halfway through.  I feel like the little engine that could, keep going, keep going.  I haven’t done any other crafting this week, but that’s ok.  I did, however, get to the gym (finally) and after that “fun” I didn’t want to move for the rest of the night.  That was on Tuesday.  Last night after dinner, I graded the latest homework assignment from my 8th graders and then cross-stitched away while I watch “continuing” coverage of the earthquake in Haiti.  What a tragedy!

So, I would like to end today’s post with a prayer for all those who are affected by this horrible event and all those still awaiting news on their loved ones. 

 Let Us Pray

God of all creation, as we weep with our family in Haiti, console us.

In this time of crisis, open our eyes to look beyond the disaster
to see Christ in our brothers and sisters in Haiti, as Christ sees us.

Be with all creation; strengthen us in solidarity with those living and working in Haiti. All creation returns to you in mourning and your grace guides our efforts to feed the hungry, shelter the homeless, comfort the grieving and stand for justice.

With your mercy, sustain us at this time
as we continue to work for peace and justice.

Amen.
