Gifts for the Soul

Guess what I found in my mailbox today?  A wonderful package from Brit, a student who just graduated with a B.A. in English.  I met Brit in the fall when she took a Creative Drama course under my instruction.  We bonded immediately.  She’s a sweet spirit.  Bright, warm, giving.  She’s on her way to becoming an amazing early childhood educator.

Brit sent a journal featuring George Seurat’s A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte—1884. Considered a masterpiece of Pointillism and the French Post-Impressionist‘s best known work, the painting shows members of different social classes enjoying leisure time in the park.  The 10-foot-wide painting took the artist 2 years to complete.   The journal cover (front and back) is embossed. The photo really does little justice.

She also sent another little something for my soul—My Personal Daily Prayer Book by Christine A. Dallman and Margaret Anne Huffman.  The beautiful gilt-edged book features a prayer, passage of scripture and a meditation for each day of the year.  There is journaling space at the end of each month.  Publications International published the book.

Brit inscribed each and also enclosed a very touching card.  I am doing a lot of meditating, reflecting and writing this summer, so these are perfect for the kind of summer I’m having. Thanks, Brit. You know your (former) prof very well.  Hearts and hugs to you!
