Rest for your soul


Cranes 16-18 of 1000 for 2016

Made from pages taken from a Bible verse calendar.

1. Psalm 91:1

“Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.”

2. 1 Timothy 1:14

“The grace of our Lord was poured out on me abundantly, along with the faith and love that are in Christ Jesus.”

3. Matthew 11:29

“Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.”

I have to admit that in my fifth day of folding paper cranes, a year of doing this sounds like a very long time. I can also say, though, that the cranes are doing what I hoped they would. They are helping me find and hold to my own emotional center. They are also compelling me to spend some time each day thinking about and voicing my prayers for the world around me–prayers for peace and harmony and well-being. My cranes may not change the world, but I believe they will change me, and possibly by extension, help me to make a difference.

Peace, friends.

May you all find rest for your souls.
