Today I drove up Oak Creek Canyon to this place where they installed a spigot along the road that is constantly streaming out the most amazing pure water from a deep natural spring. I take as many glass bottles as I can find to collect as much water as I can when I go. After filling 2 gallon jugs, and four quart bottles and 4 pint bottles, I went on my daily hike. I met a very talented young man last night, and he was there again in the parking lot where I love to hike this evening. He is a painter and showed me his paintings, I even bought one! Then I remembered about the Light the World campaign and asked if he'd like a bottle of spring water I collected today - he said sure!
I like how the full moon is peeking out above the juniper tree in the background - perfect for #lighttheworld! I had no idea this morning how I was going to do this little challenge! It was pretty awesome when the way presented itself!

These little wreaths come six to a page. Artwork by Elsa Remund. Print on white card stock and cut into a circle. You could adhere to a larger solid color or glitter paper for more strength and beauty. Punch a hole in the top and string a thread through to make a hanger, or just use a wire hook to hang on your Christmas tree!
Sorry folks, I came down with a cold that has just gotten worse each day, so I am skipping days 9-13!
