Changing windowpanes

Years ago, an article in a modest little booklet titled The House with the Colored Windows packed a metaphysical wallop for my young family. We loved reading its title story, a reprinting of an article written by Virginia Haynes for the January 1, 1944, issue of the Sentinel, along with several other stories for children.

The premise of the story is that each of us lives in a house with “windows” we look through, which largely shape the nature of our daily experience. It shows how the thoughts we entertain tend to “color” these windows, sometimes gloomily in negative ways; sometimes in healthy, positive ways. And that idea has continued to inspire me over the years.
