What a lovely surprise!!

I just loooove getting parcels, don't you?
Mr Postman knows me very well by now
and he has taken to hand deliver my parcels.
I suppose the occasional homemade Christmas cake
or bottle of homemade jam does help,
but he took up this kind habit long before I started
to reward him.

Yesterday the doorbell rang and it was Postie
with a huge parcel for me.

All the way from Muncie, Indiana (I think that is what IN stands for)
in the US of A!

It was filled with oodles of bubble wrap and squiggly foam pieces
and the cutest little card, but still I could not see what
was in the box.

And then, as I took it out, 
my heart jumped into my throat 
and my jaw dropped!

Such a beautiful gesture and gift,
straight to me heart.
And here it is 
on my blue altar
Now how did she know??

Thank you dear Nonnie
Today you stole my heart

And soon you will see a copy of this beautiful sacred heart
and your message on it, in one of my Sacred Rosary Oracle Shrines
(soon to be cards)

love and blessings

Monday mornings with Mary - Inner Sanctuary

Perhaps nature senses the longing that is in us, the restlessness that never let us settle.  She takes us into the tranquility of her stillness if we visit her. We slip into her quiet contemplation and inhabit for a while the depth of ancient belonging. Somehow we seem to become one with the rhythm of the universe.  Our longing is purified and we gain strength to come back to life refreshed, and refine our ways of belonging in the world.
