*gift of jewels* : finale...

This little jewel was custom made by my dear friend BJ who is living with an incurable form of cancer. During a recent visit, knowing that I'm completely obsessed with sock dollies, BJ pulled out her sewing machine and whipped up this lovely for me. This doll has become a personal beacon of hope and a badge of love that I will forever cherish. Isn't she a cutie? The only thing I have to make sure is that she does not get corrupted by my mischievous sock monkey, Melvin, who is always up to no good. ;)

Expressions of love simply warm my heart. As we all sprinkle our *gift of jewels* out into the universe, I'd like to invite you to leave a comment below with a special wish, or a prayer for someone in need. I sincerely believe that love strengthens the soul, especially in times of great adversity. Today, I raise my prayer flag in hopes to increase the positive vibrations here on earth, and send out these wishes for:

ayiti, i see you.
peace around the world,
the eradication of poverty
abolishment of slavery in all its forms,
equal rights and justice for all.
oh JAH, i pray that
all children be cared for
the hungry, be fed
the homeless, sheltered
the elderly, protected
the sick, nourished
for each and every one of you
to find love wherever you are today.

*give thanks once more to all who participated in the round of the *gift of jewels* project which ends February 14, 2010. i really had a lot of fun meeting so many new friends but i hope you enjoyed it even more. i'll be by to see you all soon. peace and love.


*Tibetans have decided against celebrating the lunar new year on February 14, 2010 in remembrance of those suffering inside Tibet. Prayers sent up for them.

Wow! BJ is very talented to be able to whip up such a cool doll! She is beautiful!

I would like to add a prayer for my neighbors who are mourning the loss of their 19 year old granddaughter, Katelyn. She died in a car accident a few weeks ago. Also to Katelyn's mom and dad and 14 year old sister. I wish them peace and love.

Thank you for your beautiful heart, Se'Lah. I am so privileged to know you.

Yes, BJ had created a charmer of a dolly.What s sweet expression. I hope BJ is doing well. It seems this little doll is a collector of dreams, hopes and prayers. She seems to enjoy her job!

I love that sock doll!! My grandma made me a sock monkey a long, long, long time ago and I think I still have it, stored away for safe keeping.

Thankfully life is good for me and my loved ones right now, so I'll offer up continued prayers for those in Haiti.

Thank you for this, Se'Lah.

PS I'm having a giveaway, starting tomorrow.

BJ is an incredible woman. How blessed you two are to have each other. Here it is Valentine's Day and I had to stop by and wish you a great one. A wish from me:

On this day, may you know, really know how much you are loved. May you recognize love in all it's forms. May you be grateful for the love of children and pets, old friendships and your husband. May your heart swell with all the beauty this life brings. Happy Valentine's Day, my friend.

That is a darling doll! I used to make sock dollies when I was a little girl. They are a ton of fun to make and so soft.
Wishing you a splendid Valentine's!

Sweet doll and so clever of BJ and so kind of her to think of others when she is going through so much.

Life is good at the moment so I'd like to offer up a ⁄thought for all those who are lonely and in need today. ≥That they might somehow feel the positive vibrations of love sent out to them from this little corner of blogland...

Sharon said...

Your doll is just beautiful!

Teresha@Marlie and Me said...

you and BJ are lucky to have each other! I had so much fun tapping into my creative spirit to make a gift of jewel to send to my recipient! I lift up the people of Haiti in prayer that the world does not forget to support them as they rebuild in the coming weeks, months and years.
