The Amazing Scarf

I promised I'd let you know how the scarf adventures turned out so here it is....

After Thanksgiving stroll
Making holiday goodies

shopping on Black Friday

I kept the scarf for 10 days...which fell over Thanksgiving and Black Friday. The scarf accompanied me for our holiday celebrating, family time and afterward for shopping on Black Friday and Christmas cooking on the weekend. To my thinking, the entire time was just a little piece of Americana...things almost every American was doing in their on way at about the same time, individually, yet the same. This is the thing, maybe more than any other, that makes America great, the bonds of sameness that we all enjoy...or suffer for that matter...our commonality.

What a great picture of our lives in Christ...different and certainly individual, yet connected by the sameness that makes it all something deeper, powerful and infinitely worthwhile.


....Funny how something like a winter scarf could do something amazing....

Not unlike Flat Stanley, the Scarf will hold memories of its wearer and go with it as it travels on. There will always be the Cheryl Holiday scent on a tiny piece of its fabric. Much like the things we carry around with us, both physical and non-physical, can leave an imprint after they are gone. The fragrance of each other even when we can't be seen, much like God himself.

Aw - do you think by the time it's journeyed through your winter, it wants to come on down here for ours?

An unusual and wonderful bond is forming with this traveling scarf, I feel like I know each one who has had the scarf just a little better and the sisterhood is becoming a real reality. Can't wait to see where it goes next. Could it be me? Maybe..maybe not, we will wait and see!!

Dear Cheryl or Jada,
Jada means "oh yes" in Norwegian.
Very positive expression.
I also have enjoyed your American journey.
You are right; it's the everyday life that's by far most interesting to read about.
Our personal joys, achievements and sorrows.

With all of the activity going on, I forgot to say Thank You for the goodies you sent with the scarf! I think that was a lovely, thoughtful, yummy, extra touch! I enjoyed getting the scarf and then how I felt connected to all of the scarf sisters! This was a great idea!

PS The word verification is
"mulete".
Is that how the French spell
"mullet"?
Tee-Hee!
