Gifts

God's gifts
are often
misplaced,
forgotten,
ignored,
neglected
but they
 are there
waiting
to be
reopened,
rediscovered,
reused,
and relearned.

many faces of thought

God is all forgiving;



Why am I not?


God is all I need;


Why do I forget?


God is hope;


Why do I doubt?


God is faith;


Why do I fear?


God is love;


Why do I hate?


God is peace;


Why do I allow turmoil?


God is joy;


Why do I not smile for that reason alone?

leap & choose

By choosing God’s goodness ahead of time I can survive any situation.

By choosing peace of Spirit first I can stay calm in any situation.

By choosing God’s mercy ahead of time I can ignore any situation.

Choosing art is cheaper than therapy

When life gets to be too much to deal with
I turn to the gift of art God gave me for coping.
I smear paint, cut and paste, color, and journal; and life gets clearer.
Images come together; colors blend; and words heal my heart.
Fears subside; troubles melt; and my mind relaxes a bit.

Choice is yours

Choose this:

God’s grace to protect you.

God’s love to guide you.

God’s strength to be enough.

Your faith to be sufficient.

God’s peace to settle over you.

life influences life

Stand still and listen to your heart.

Sit quietly and hear God’s voice.

Close your eyes and see the path to wholeness.

Open your spirit and feel the healing love of life.

Bare your soul and know the fullness of living.

Trust is a choice

We often refer to things as a trust issue, well, trust is a choice....
Daily I have to choose:
  • not to worry
  • to be happy
  • to find peace
  • to trust God
  • to know Christ
  • to live Spirit
It's all a life style plan to choose daily how you wish to live!


Notice that the images of the "seers" I call them is going to be a repeating image for awhile...here I've combined them with a lovely sunset...digitally of course!

the power lies within you!

The strength of human spirit can rule if we give up control

The beauty of living can reign if we give in to it.

The hope of better days can pull us through if we allow it.

Snowy Reverie

Snow quietens a noisy head.
Birds teach me the importance of basic life needs.
A bonus day to stay inside calm and peaceful.
Routine drudgery is interrupted.
Hope rouses my sense of wander.
Joy dances on my mouth.
Grace is present.
Mercy is accepted.

Sometimes the thoughts are hard to choose

Focus words are as hard to maintain for 365 days as a resolution but it gives me many more possibilities.....

Cold and frozen
in the pathway of life
she loses her spirit.
Alone and scared
in the darkness of night
she loses her mind.
Broken and hurt
in the details of living
she loses her heart.
Confused and doubtful
in the day to day schedule
she loses her soul
But she will choose God
to give it all back to her one day.
