My version of prayer flags

"Prayers go up and blessings come down."
-Yiddish Proverb quotes

As I was hanging our cloth napkins on the line yesterday I was struck at how much they resembled Tibetan prayer flags. I've never thought about my laundry on the line in that capacity before. I suppose it was because it was our napkins, which are a variety of colors and uniform in size, but still, the resemblance and, more importantly, the significance of it, was remarkable. It is exactly these simple acts, done on a daily basis and with a humble heart, that can and should be my offering to God.

"We cannot all do great things, but we can do small things with great love."
-Mother Teresa
