A skyfull of whispers…..for you


In my heart,
I’m folding crisp a Christmas card I made you
layering spirit and light and blessing and love
to whoosh on angel breezes
and settle soft like snow
exactly where you are
right now.


Inside,  a skyfull of shining starry whispers
would encourage your muchness
and lift away fatigue
and stir your courage
and sing over you fresh hope
and say it exactly how you need to hear it
that you’re beautiful
and priceless
and golden.

I’m sending it now,
trusting the mystery
that it sticks in all the places
your heart needs it most.

Feel it?

“This is the irrational season
when love blooms bright and wild.
Had Mary been filled with reason,
there’d have been no room
for the child.”
-Madeline L’engle

    Wow Jennifer, you have ways of sending magical words that touches the soul like no one I know on earth.
    Every little flake of your words comes down so softly to rest in the precise place where it’s needed. Thanks and many joyous and peaceful blessings to you my friend.

    Such uplifting sparkles as I sit in my frozen iced RV in Texas. A much needed whisper tonight (to stay sane)! Keep inspiring and sharing your light!

    Dearest Jennifer:
    It was meant to be that I stopped by today. Your words are just what I needed to read, feel, and absorb. I do feel my fatigue lifting away- all because of your heartfelt and thoughtful words. You have a special gift and I am so glad that you share it with us!
    Much love to you!

    Hi Jennifer,
    I knew there was a something new here, waiting for me to visit and discover. This being a busy week, I waited until this morning to open and read it with my morning coffee. A ‘sky full of shining starry whispers’ greeted me and I felt so encouraged and soothed by your beautiful words and photography. It felt like I was unwrapping a very special gift, and I thank you so much for your sweet generosity. xo

    I do feel it! Just today I put a wonderful “bell” of Jennifer art that you sent me earlier this year! So, you are there with me every day!

    How beautiful this is. I wish I had your skill with words!

    i love the madeleine l’engle quote (and the snowflakes on your pup’s beautiful nose!) wishing you and all your loved ones the happiest and warmest of christmases (and thanking YOU, for sharing your beauty and honesty and artistry with me and all of us this past year.)

    There IS that hush, isn’t there? Amidst all the merry, laughing, friendship visits and more — there is still that beautiful, peaceful hush.

    Merriest of Christmasses to you.
