the Ruana came from a photo I took of the
backyard on a Cold January night.
January is quite a long month here
in the Midwest. Cold, cold and more
cold......Waiting for signs of
Brrrrr! It was below 0 and stayed that way for so long. I grew so tired of white snow, dark bare trees, and I decided to turn bleak into beauty! The colors of the sunset in my picture above became the the colors of my Ruana. The spectrum of winter in the Midwest~I call it "Sunset Ruana."

When I wake up in the morning, my first thoughts are to thank the Lord for this new day, (this time of the year, I am also thanking Him for Spring which is around the corner...), the second thing that pops into my mind is my schedule: 1. Brush teeth 2. Get on the dreaded treadmill 3. Set out projects that need completing 4. Packages ready to post 5. List new items on Ebay & Lollishops, etc....
This morning in my daily devotional (which was supposed to be read last night!), I saw a sentence that leapt off of the page, you know the kind of lesson that is meant Just For You? It read, "God has not designed us to live like hermits in a cave." Wow!! I'm a hermit!! I really am! I wondered how many women like myself, with home-based businesses are home working in their shop day after day, (loving every minute of it), but perhaps missing a little something..Hmmmm. Companionship of the REAL kind!! :-) Not a computer, not a blog or a television set but real companionship? Ever on a schedule, I decided to think about that tomorrow, and finish a project today.
And as I put the finishing touches my latest rag quilt, I thought how beautiful the colors blend, how nicely the squares all fit together, their closeness creating the texture and dimension to the quilt. I contemplated how each and every square added a uniqueness to the whole piece. And then, my mind wandered back to the passage I read this morning....
"That is why... the body of Christ is so very important, for it is there that we are drawn together in love and mutual encouragement. We were meant to be part of one anothers lives." So today, I will wander out of my cave (smiles), shed the tattered sweatpants, run a brush through my hair, and revel in the friendships that make up the fabric of my life! Blessings~
