Just Thinking About Thoughts!

Just something pretty to look at!


Do you ever wonder how many thoughts you have in one day?
I know it is crazy to be thinking about it, because as I am thinking about it, I am making another thought!
Today
was one of those days!
Thinking, Thinking, Thinking!
...and now I suppose you are wondering what I am thinking about!
I don't know if it is just creative people who have this mess of thoughts going around all the time in their head, but it does get kind of annoying sometimes.
I have read the book by Eckart Tolle called A New Earth and he talks
about "just being" sometimes.
Seriously, have you ever tried to do it?
I have tried, and it is not that easy,
to sit there and just be!
We have so many things in our lives that are contantly grabbing for our attention!
Cell Phones, regular phones, radios, TV's, door bells, dogs barking,
computers, e-mail, just regular activity, traffic, etc.
It really is a wonder we are all not in the looney bin.
I guess I am not sure where this is going, well I do too!
When you sit and stitch are you able to zone out the world
and really get some peaceful time??
I love my quiet time when I can just sit and stitch and be absorbed in whatever it is that I am working on. It is like the world has stopped around me. I can do that if I am drawing and designing too.
Maybe that is why I love it so much.
It's been a long day!
I hope I have given you something to think about!!
Happy Stitching! Carol

Prayers Please Today!

The events of the past 24 hours have made this a very sad day. Please join me in praying for all the people who have been directly touched by the earthquake and the resulting tsunami. If there are any of you that may know how any of us can help these people with quilts or anything else, please let us know. I would be glad to share the information in my blog.
I know that it is probably too early to even know what kind of help they need, but we need to help in whatever way we can. Sometimes I feel so helpless; I guess that is when we should pray some more.
Just pray for now, Carol
