A joyful labyrinth honors faith & family

When our Awesome God created each of us He put a tiny piece of Himself within each of our hearts that we might be a blessing to others. This special “creativity” materializes/shows itself in many different ways. Please, take a moment and be blessed………………

Minnesota Prairie Roots

MY FRIEND JOY is one of those creative types whose talent and energy seem endless.

She carves and builds and creates, always working on some project that enhances the rural Faribault home she shares with her husband, Steve.

Indoors and out, Joy’s house and yard reflect her individuality, her appreciation for family and history and that which is old or useful or meaningful. Her faith is often interwoven into her projects.

    Oh how I love labyrinths. I first walked one in New Harmony, Indiana and since then, I always look for them in our travels. It is so peaceful and soothing to walk a labyrinth. I’ve often thought of putting one in our paddock – – – – this gives me inspiration to think about it more thoroughly. I don’t think the cattle would mind, do you? 🙂
