Beautiful Sunshine and a book on Beginnings

More blue squares are knit and sewn on 

Lots of wash clothes knit for early
Christmas knitting! 

Written by a well known Orthodox Monastic
to those just beginning their inward and outward
journey in a monastery,
I am finding it very relevant to us in
our everyday lives.
I love how it begins with the need to love God & others
as the most important thing
and then goes from there.
I found this paragraph really striking and comforting 
at the same time...
that God requires only of us what we've been given:

What are you reading and creating?
Do yarn along with us today!
