Upcycling is one of the many things I proudly do as my contribution in the conservation of our beloved Mother Earth. This pandemic gave me more time to think about what and how I can reuse household things that we normally just throw away.
As a result, I have these Lights of Hope made of reused clear and colored bottles. These little lights represent minuscule miracles in our everyday life. We might not consciously see, hear, smell, taste or feel them. We experience them every day. These gifts are so ordinary but when we sum them all together, they become extraordinary. I am grateful for the sunrise in the morning, sounds of raindrops on the window pane, the sleep I had in spite of my bout with insomnia, the aches and pains that remind me that I have to practice self care, messages from friends wishing me a great day and many many more things I am thankful for. Life is good even when we are bombarded with worries, restrictions, and the threat of Covid. When I am feeling distress, I will light up my Light of Hope in these coming holidays. These little sparkling lights will remind me that God is around us and we are not alone in this journey.

Lovely. Thank you. Love your little bottle lights and the story behind them. And thank you for reminding us of sunsets and raindrops on the windowpane and sleep and friends. God is all around us for sure.
Those are beautiful lights and great reminders of good things. I am a fan of upcycling as well. Thanks for your post, and enjoy your day!
