Warning: Divergent Blogging Roads Ahead
I have started another blog, prayers for an oft traveled road. Here, in my quilt blog, I will continue to touch on my spiritual journey as it relates to my creative expression in quiltmaking (I cannot separate the two entirely), but I will try to narrate with a lighter touch.
In my prayer blog I will delve more deeply into my private journey. I have a love of and fascination for the mystical mysteries of relationship with God and in community — and that may or may not appeal to you. “I Yam what I Yam,” a famous spinach-eating sailor once said. I hope that what I Yam is growing and progressing (though some days it feels like two steps forward, three back), I am a work in progress.
Anne Lamott has said that her agnostic or atheist friends tend to look kindly upon the blindspot she has for Jesus, I hope you will grant me the same grace if you do not share my lightly monkish, heavily invested in grace and forgiveness and dusted with angel’s wings sorta mindset.
But if you do share a soul’s search for the Greater Outside Us and have a thought or two or two dozen to share while we walk some of the same paths, then please, come to another oft traveled road.
