I miss Patti Digh when I don't read her blog every day so this morning I started catching up on all the 37 Days posts I have missed lately. This morning Patti writes in memory of a dear teacher and cites a wonderful poem in his honor. Then she tells that Patricia sent her the poem. Following that link I found that Patricia is why Patti wrote about Trudy and asked people to put her name into what I have always called a God box.
A God Box is a place for prayers and petitions. And praise and thank yous as well.
It does not have to be a special box but it can be - like the one Kate is using. Patricia linked to Kate and I am grateful to find her blog. I know I will be back to it often.
So my morning check up onc 37 Days brought on this bit of surfing, connecting and reconnecting and a bright light - epiphany they call it. My God box was right here all the time and I could not see it through my fog of fear.
I hope you read far enough to see that Patricia also has high praise for Patti's book, Life is a Verb which will be released soon. I can't wait to see it.
And I have a special reason to be on pins and needles until it arrives.
April 2 - I received an email from Patti - Your Art Work
Finally, I am writing to tell you that the artwork you submitted will be included in the book!!
Last Fall Patti issued an invitation to 37 Day followers asking for submissions for the book. She sent essays to the more than 100 artists who responded. I submitted 2 pieces - made for specific essays - maybe this one will be in the book.
All I can say at the moment is - I am thrilled to be a part of the project.
