"With our thoughts we make the world" (an old Buddhist saying)
Today, Kristie and I took the prayer flag banner we made up into the Santa Catalina Mountains and found a spot in the aspens at Mt. Bigelow to hang them.
If you don’t know what I’m talking about, here’s a link to the original post about the “Prayers for Our World” Project.
This is our photo story of the “Our Prayers for the World” flag banner creation.
And here are pictures from today’s trip up into the mountains.
My favorite place in the Santa Catalina Mountains is this grove of aspens—it’s a place my husband and I return to on a regular basis no matter the time of year. When we had our big fire, this small grove was somehow spared for which I am ever so grateful.
Kristie agrees this is the perfect spot.
No sooner had we hung the prayer flag banner when a wind picked up and golden aspen leaves started falling like snow all around us. It was gorgeous.
Our prayers started whipping around in the wind—it was a very spiritual moment.
Kristie brought yummy pumpkin cookies she made in the shape of leaves and frosted to honor our outing. She also brought a thermos of the most delicious hot spiced tea and apples.
We had a little feast sitting on the ground amidst the golden aspen leaves and talking about the ups and downs of life and how differently people handle their challenges.
Your prayers and ours are now hanging in the aspens at Mt. Bigelow. All of you who sent us names for the banner now have your prayers as well as ours going out into the world—our master prayer list held 64 precious names.
We wish you and your loved ones peace, love, and healing.
