Messages from the past – Reach – DCC Hop

It's the time to hop again with all of my fellow designer friends from the Designer Craft Connection! The theme this month is spring! Spring for me is Passover, a special time to be with family and learn the story about redemption. As you all know the story tells us about the Israelites slavery in Egypt and the miracle of their exodus led by Moses after the 10 plagues. This is a powerful historic story but it still has some lessons for us today.

The people of Israel made the transition from slaves to a nation by pure faith. They left everything they knew and went forward. They reached out with their hearts, hands and minds and made a leap of faith. We need to do the same. We need to reach out and grab life, believe in ourselves and reach for the sky, reach for our dreams. Like the arrival of the Israelites to the Promised Land we need to find what our promise is and reach for it. Don't give up if it's hard or the journey is long, there is a right place for all of us and we have to reach out, find it and get there!
