Shine the Divine:

Creativity IS a Spiritual Practice

When we see through our hearts, we recognize that every single one of us is infused with creativity. Divine Sparks are embedded in everyone and everything. It's up to us to be courageous, to look and listen deeply, to find the sparks, gather and release them back into the universe, transformed into something new. Join me as we wake up to the sacred-ordinary blessings waiting to greet us each and every day.

Hakarat Hatov: Recognizing the Good #16

linking to:
wordless wednesday
For the remainder of the month of November, I will post a photo (or perhaps a few) each day that I DO have internet access, of something that invited me to pause and lifted up gratitude, joy, perhaps a quiver of awe in my heart the moment I stopped to be present and really see. By reviewing the image/images to share with you, the experience is engraved deeper in my consciousness, strengthening a reserve of gratitude and goodness to savor and draw upon when gloomy weather outside echoes inside, or vice versa. For me this is a devotional photographic journey for developing the soul quality of Hakarat Hatov…recognizing the good, a Jewish spiritual practice for cultivating gratitude. 

I look forward to receiving your written patches of thanks for this year's:

5th Annual 
(Instructions for how to participate at the top of this blog.)
There is no actual quilting involved and EVERYONE is invited. 
If you are looking for the I Heart Macro Week 27 link, it is open hereand will remain open until Wednesday evening… don't worry, you haven't missed it!

Please forgive me for not visiting your blogs right away, I have a lot of work to do this week, but will visit you soon.
