Joy In Completion

Today I join Meri for Share the Joy.   For I believe we need to find it in my life every day no matter the realities in which we live.  God is Good in so many ways even in times of trial.

Joy comes in many forms.
And this day has the potential of
being just as grand as
celebrating the treasures in
all that surrounds me.

must be open to it!        
I just completed two prayer shawls.  There is such joy in finishing project.  There were times when prayer was more for me, because of a mistake I made several rows back, than for someone in need.  When you have finished there is also the anticipation of beginning anew.  And so today I begin again.
Stitches of understanding
Rows of compassion
Prayer shawl made with love


Thanks be to God!!!


Please visit Rebecca at recuerda mi corazon for Haiku My Heart. There is always more beautiful words  there to enchant and encourage!!! 


  1. These are certainly beautiful. Whatever mistake was made rows back is made up for in forward rows of beauty and love. Also congrats on your retirement. What an awesome career you have had. And gift tags......I use last year's Christmas cards cut into little tag shapes and punch a hole to tie them. You can see I've been scrolling. Happy day to you

  2. What a wonderful post of joy of completion and the beautiful needlework you have created with the prayer shawls ~

    Happy Holidays,

  4. Oh the joy in every stitch. These are beautiful.

  5. i love how comforting these prayer shawls will be-love in every stitch!

  6. Good evening, Cathy. There IS something very satisfying by the act of completion, something that your post reminds me I have not done now for a few months. I think I'm inspired to make 2015 my years to finish up a few of my languishing projects. Wishing you a very Merry Christmas.
