shine. photos and one little action.

...february's prompt is a photo collage.  it really helps that I'm taking a photo a day (and that I have three cameras to use!) so I had plenty to choose from. here are the ones that told my "shine" story last month.
the steeple at church shining against the bright february sky (I took this photo on february 1; loved starting out the month with this image); starbucks love; an early morning rainbow; my saturday lace class; welcoming marc home on valentine's day; valentine's day roses; lights shining at summerour (the venue for katie's wedding); prayer shawl signup at last week's ministry fair (I collected six new names!); month of letters (serendipity to have a great way to connect and share with so many people).

...and now it's on to march. march's prompt is to take one little action.

this year, I am inviting grace, giving, serving others, spiritual growth, sharing, joy and peace. my one little action is to volunteer (along with other women from my church) at the foster cares support distribution center. I've wanted to do this for a while, but it's a tuesday morning and that's when I work. last sunday it occurred to me I could probably switch shifts - it's just one day a month. so I signed up. now I have to make it happen. because I really want to see where this takes me.

Wonderful photo collage! I think this might be one of my favorite parts of One Little Word! (And, Mary. Here's another one. Presbyterian. Really.)

great images for the collage-of course, i'm a little behind on getting january and february "on paper". have a volunteer project that i'd like to "focus" on for this year (and beyond), just not sure yet. i love the one you've chosen with the foster kids-look forward to hearing more about that.

Love your February assignment Mary! Your goals for March are amazing - so much compassion and I hope you are able to make it happen. Thank you so much for sharing. I love the power happening in OLW.

your OLW certainly is fitting you and sending you down a path filled with love, giving and gratitude.

congrats on your prayer shawl ministry - joining one several years ago is how i "ret'd" to knitting.

hope your exchange of work shifts enables you to volunteer.

so, Katie and Rob have a date set?!

Cheers~
