#LightTheWorld by Clothing the Naked

Don't you just love the #LightTheWorld initiative? Everyday when I wake up, I think, "How will I participate today?"  Fortunately, it is usually easy to come up with an idea that works into my schedule--it really isn't difficult to give service!

Today's topic--"Jesus Taught Us to Clothe the Naked and You Can Help"--is another one that it is easy to do.  I already have a bag of clothing that has been waiting for me to take to the local Salvation Army.  Today I will get it out the door and to the charity.  

Another way to participate is to knit or crochet hats for babies.  I read about the Little Hats Big Hearts program yesterday.  I'm not sure if I will get hats made before the end of the year (which is the deadline), but I am going to share this idea with my daughter, who loves to crochet.  

We still have some leftover bags for the homeless waiting in our car, too, and those bag have socks in them.  As we are driving around town today, we will pass out more bags if we see people in need.  

Winter is nearly here officially, but has already started weather-wise in much of the US.  How will you help keep people warm?

  1. Infant hats are quickly made from scrap yarn, flannel or fleece baby blankets are quick and easy to make. I remember a lady in the hospital auxiliary who crocheted a simple edge around the flannel gal jets to make them even more special.

    1. When my children were babies, I had some flannel receiving blankets with crocheted edges. The crocheted edges did make them more special. :-)

Ten Things of Thankful: Even in Times of Uncertainty

  A railroad switch point on the tracks at the Golden Spike National Historic Park There is a lot I don't know. I don't know who will lead the United States for the next four years (at the time I'm composing this post, that hasn't been determined yet.) I don't know when covid cases will stop rising in my state and start decreasing. I don't know how challenging situations will turn out. There is much uncertainty in life. Living in limbo-land is hard. It's emotionally exhausting. It can be immobilizing. My body seems to think chocolate is the answer, but I know that isn't a long-term solution. What do I need in times like these? I need to REMEMBER . 1. R esilience. People are resilient. I am resilient. I'm thankful for resilience. 2. " E ach Life That Touches Ours for Good." So many people, both those I know in "real life," and those I have only met virtually, have taught me, encouraged me, and been examples to me. I'm thankful

Ten Things of Thankful: Last Two Weeks

  Grand Prismatic Spring in Yellowstone National Park, as viewed from an overlook I apologize for not commenting on your blog posts this past week; John and I took a vacation to Yellowstone National Park, leaving behind our computers and, to a large extent, cell phone service. We escaped the outside world and just spent time in nature. Though we have friends near Yellowstone (who we love to visit) we made this trip just about us, so please forgive us if we were nearby and didn't stop by. The crowds were minimal (though we did mask up whenever we passed someone on the trails) and we spent our days hiking, taking photos, and watching geysers erupt. Today, we are back home and back to work, and, in the case of my computer, back to old shenanigans like not letting me import my photos. (I was able to add the above photo by using blogger on my phone, but that isn't my preferred method.) I want to write about Yellowstone and have photos I want to share, but will leave that for another
