Happy New Year 2022 from the Tiny House!! We have a tradition every year to decorate the Tiny House with twelve festive balloons, beginning at 12 noon and popping one balloon every hour until 12 midnight New Years Eve and making a “WISH!”. Due to lockdowns, quarantines, isolating, testing and years of just getting used to being alone, we at the Tiny House want to share our prayers and hopes for everyone reading this post to think of all of this as “clarity”. Clarity to “see” the tiny things that really matter. A beautiful lighted Christmas tree, a good night’s rest, a delicious hot meal on a cold winter’s day. Remember what truly matters is your ability to care about someone other than yourself. That is what we should all be thinking going into this New Year 2022! God grant you hope, compassion and love.
Many years ago I fell in love with the images painted by Thomas Kinkade. I have always loved the way the lights shine hope through the windows of his paintings and discovered God. I keep hope alive through the lights I shine through my own windows of my Tiny House, and hope that others will see the comfort this brings on a dark and lonely night.
