The same day we planted those small spruce tree seeds last week, we sowed a mix of seeds for microgreens. Microgreens are really just regular green (as in lettuce, beets, cabbage, radish, etc.) seeds that you grow in a soil medium until they reach about 2 inches. They are really good in sandwiches or as a garnish on soups.
I went upstairs after I wrote the small seeds post last week and saw that the greens had started to sprout...a little sign for me...prayer received and processing. Then, I spent the rest of the week being truly inspired by all the projects that were sprouting up all over the place to support the people of Haiti. My list of seeds that I was watering grew....
Craft Hope for Haiti
Earthmama's Walking Meditation
All Buttoned Up's Plea for Haitian Orphans
Shivaya Natural's Etsy Shop
Indie Fixx's Silent Auction
Our Hearts Go Out to Haiti Fortune Cookie Sale
Green Acre's Heart to Heart Care Kits
Awake is Good's Meditation for Haiti (towards bottom)
Through the Eyes of a Yak's Hearts for Haiti Project
And I continued to find reasons to be inspired. I've kept Haiti in my heart and on my mind. I've been trying to discover more ways to help. I missed the deadline for Craft Hope for Haiti's shop, but I decided not to let that stop me. I will be adding some valentine cards to our shop this week, and 100% of the proceeds will go to Faith Hope Love Infant Rescue that is run by two American women in Port-au-Prince, Haiti. My niece, Katie, went there 2 years ago on a mission trip to help this orphanage and produced this video to document their experience. Keep in mind that the photos for this video were taken 2 years ago before the earthquake.
My hope and prayers are that Haiti will finally get the help that they needed all along...that a new Haiti will emerge that can support its people, especially its children. They have all suffered enough.
'Though I do not believe that a plant will spring up where no seed has
been, I have great faith in a seed. Convince me that you have a seed
there, and I am prepared to expect wonders.' ~Henry David Thoreau
Please let me know if you have or know of a great project that someone started to support Haiti.
