Did you ever feel that your efforts wouldn't amount to much? That big ticket items like World Peace were somehow out of your league, let alone clearing the mystery meat out of the back of the refridgerator?
Well - let me introduce you to Mimi Lenox, a blogger from the American southeast. Mimi turned a personal connection to a blue marble into a world wide peace movement.
Her beloved grandfather shaped homemade marbles once upon a time, that years later now sit in a wooden bowl in Mimi's home.
The blue marble reminded her of a globe of the world.
Today, Mimi collects Peace Globes, or banners made by bloggers around the world to celebrate her incredible event:
Blog Blast For Peace
Yesterday, Nov. 4th was the official day to fly the peace globes, but it's such a big event that it's not too late to join in over the weekend. If you CLICK on the link and scroll down, you can sign the Mr. Linky and share your thoughts about peace with a world of bloggers.
Here's the Peace Globe (above) which I made for this year.
CLICK HERE to see the Peace Globe Gallery I assembled from some of my favorites from two years ago.
This is the sort of discovery I love about visiting other peace bloggers. Check out the lovely knitted Peace Globe that Goodnightgram created for the event.
Or this temporary art installation for a previous Blog Blast by Dawn @ Twisted Sister.
Bloggers share songs from You Tube, poetry and quotes about peace. Bloggers compose thoughful posts about peace. It's an amazing journey through a world of hope, intention and action.
You can connect with Mimi through Facebook or Twitter as well as through her blog, Mimi Writes.
I've made quite a few close blog friends through this event, and look forward to it all year long. You can check out what I had to say on the subject of surrender for this year's peace post.
So when you find yourself wondering if it's all worth it, or does anything ever really amount to anything - just remember Mimi Lenox, a blue handmade marble and a worldwide peace movement.
One person most definitely can make a difference. Let there be peace on earth, and let it begin with me.
