Quoting Wednesday

Faith is the bird that sings when the dawn is still dark.  
~Rabindranath Tagore

One of my friends, a deeply religious person, has lately found herself surrounded by friends and family who are experiencing many troubles in their lives.  For her, I created a prayer pocket, with a hidden place to tuck in papers that have names and intentions on them.  And all the while I was hand stitching it, I was saying a prayer for her.

If you listed all the reasons for your faith, 
and all the things that make you cry, 
it would be essentially the same list.  
~Robert Brault

Oh Teri
Rabindranath Tagore is another of my favourites going back the same amount of time as Rumi, Hafiz etc.
I couldn't think of a more appropriate "gift" to a friend in need.
What a wonderful support!

If someone gave me something like this that is handmade with so much love, I would treasure it for all time. What a gesture of kindness and thoughtfulness.
