A Textile Lover’s Dream

February 20, 2019 1 min read

7am

As I struggled to walk barefoot at 15 degrees Centigrade on even colder marble floors – suddenly I see this vision:

Wovensouls Antique Vintage Textiles and Art Gallery - 1

The eyes took over my mind… and  the cold stinging feet were forgotten!

Was so curious to find out more…

But this was a holy place. And these were textiles offered in worship.

So I quietly reined in my desires, bundled up my curiosity, soaked in the serenity of the place and prayed for more beauty in the world!
