Guest Artist: Rebecca
I wanted to introduce you to Rebecca. She is one of the first people I met when I joined the Bloggerette Sorority...and I am so happy that she agreed to be a guest artist today!
Rebecca creates so much beauty--and that is what amazes me about her! It is no wonder that her home has been featured in so many famous magazines--she is gifted! But, in addition to that, she is genuinely warm, a trait that I so highly value as I’m sure you do too.
It was difficult to decide what I wanted to post and then we settled on one of her pillows. And you may wonder, “Why a pillow?” Well, the reason is that it reminded me of when I was little and would say my prayers beginning with, “Now I lay me down to sleep...” And I would rest my head on the pillow when I finished thanking God for all of my blessings. It was such a comfort.
And then, I thought of “our comfort zones” and how easy it is to stay glued to them instead of reaching out to others to comfort them. Imagine if each day we reached out to comfort someone, even if it meant saying, “I understand what you’re going through.” We could visit someone who is sick. We could help someone to their car whose load is too heavy.
Being a comfort to others is a privilege. It is one of the best ways I know to affirm that the Lord is alive and well and dwelling in us.
When I saw this pillow, I thought of all the collective comfort we could bring to others! All of us just doing one thing could add up to so much! And when we rest our heads on the pillow at night, we would know that we made this world just a little brighter.
