Taking A Stand

Taking a stand is living your standards. The seat of doubt gladly provides a cushion “Sit this one out.” Others will comfort you with words of ease. Opportunities will come to occupy your time —to take your time. Untangle yourself from other people’s drama. It’s a spider web restricting your…

Reach Out To Me

Don’t you know I’m always here. In big and small ways, I’m watching out for you. I’m always close even when events take you away — when you let other priorities get in the way from My love. Reach out to Me.  Stretch out your arms & embrace My love. …

The Power is Real! ✨

The power is real! ✨I don’t know about you, but sometimes I need extra inspiration and uplift. And images can do it! The power of a coffee table book is real!➡️ “Coffee table books with impressive imagery can inspire positive emotions like AWE, curiosity, improving COGNITION, improving MOOD, encouraging a…

And the Clouds Say

And the clouds say… “I’m opening a way.” I’ve passed this church for many years but never stopped to take a photo. It wasn’t the right timing. The sky wasn’t there. A cloudy day, just a blue sky — no, it’s not there yet. Patience and timing. A simple analogy…

A Favorite?

It started right after a gallery show featured exhibition of my artwork on July 5, 2019. A creative process that left me wondering…”What’s next?” Enter a time of “Pause.” What is ”Pause?” Well, for me, it was stillness. Listening from within - an inner turning instead of an external tuning.…

Soft Faith

I tried soft faith. But it didn’t work.  I call it soft because it’s the kind of faith that’s lukewarm and easy. It’s when you say you are a man or woman of faith, but still act in the world of convenience and ease. You DO when it’s easy. You…
