Category Archives: Continue to Pray for Peace
This pattern was inspired by a line in a book I’m reading, Hidden Mountain, Secret Garden: A Theological Contemplation on Prayer. I’ve always found it somewhat difficult to pray consistently. I often read about it, thinking to discover a path to a deeper prayer life. But most of the time needlework serves as the path to my hidden mountain, quieting and separating me from the world. Setting my stitches is somewhat like fingering the beads of a Rosary, a physical meditation leading to peaceful contemplation and a sense of spiritual connection.
I love colors against a black background (must have an Amish gene in the mix!) and inadvertantly left the black background in the pattern directions when I first posted. Here’s what Prayer Seeks … looks like on very dark fields … one black and one navy blue, and also on a pastel ground.
Amazing woman filled with the love of God. Perfect for thinking about in the month of hearts.
Thank you all for your lovely comments! You give this designer even more motivation! Note: I’ve started a new Box.net SHARED FILES widget, as the first one is full and it’s getting a it harder to easily find the patterns you want. So, as of today patterns created before April 2013 will be stored in the first Shared Files widget. Patterns created for release in April 2013 and after, will be stored in the second, Shared Files II widget. All patterns are under my copyright and released for your personal, non-commercial use only. The original design (pictured here) was created with Sullivan’s Floss.
The DMC version is also in the Shared Files II widget!
This is a late posting I know, but it’s posted in the spirit, not the letter of. If I could, I would exist outside of all time. I’m still not completely ready for last Christmas, which is not unusual, but the anticipation of Christmas is always with me. The words of MLK Jr. and other wisdom-bearers are always with me also, bringing hope into our sorry, sorry world.
