The Scarf

I am a part of a sisterhood....
so big and so diverse that I cannot fully comprehend it. The faces and lives of my sisters reflect that of Christ to me if I will only stop to notice. Everyone of them different yet the same..in Him. I am so blessed to be a part of His great family in the earth and to share that in a micro way with 11 other beautiful sisters through the magic of the traveling scarf....it is a link to these eleven sisters scattered around the country even the world. Through the travels of our scarf we are connected, a picture of our true reality. Because though separated by miles and timezones, cultures and continents we actually stand outside of time and space, hand in hand together with our Lord. Our traveling scarf denotes this, a cord that binds us together. It is a tangible representation of what is true, the invisible made visible. Its a magical bond that reflects His binding of us together. I'm up for an adventure...with the scarf...with my sisters! I'll let you know how it turns out. :)

Grace - heard this week that grace can't be paid back but nothing about paying it forward. What a wonderful way for us women to share ourselves with each other. I can imagine hold the scarf and praying with it. The next leg of its journey and yours. Women's relationships can be as difficult as they are rewarding - the two go hand in hand. May you two spend some good time together especially this week before Thanksgiving...

That sounds really interesting. I'd like to hear more about this story!

Give my love to Bek. I haven't been about the blogs much lately, and didn't realize her hubby had been deployed.
