Letter to a friend

“If we want a love message to be heard, it has got to be sent out. To keep a lamp burning, we have to keep putting oil in it.” Mother Teresa

Am packing up the cards from this season, some of the favourites of course are the handmade ones. They don’t have to be fancy or over embellished because the simplest acts of a few words from special folks with a little of their art is enough to make them individualised messages from the heart.

The photo card is from Wendy of Windy Angels who has a darling etsy shop thing happening.

The quote on her card reads “No peace lies in the future which is not hidden in this present little instant. Take peace! The gloom of the world is but a shadow. Behind it, yet within our reach, is joy. There is radiance and glory in darkness, could we but see. And to see, we have only to look. “

From Fra Giovanni Giocondo an Italian architect and Franciscan Monk in the late 1400s
