she cannot

but maybe she will anyway.....

Dear World

Do you think things will be all right? How long does the world have till it is done? Will it ever be a happy, safe place to live? Is God tired of this mess? Why do we still have so many Haves and Have Nots? Where can we go to find peace? What if I just give up? Was it ever worth it?
I get so angry when I watch the news or read the paper. I get so sad when I see how people treat people. I get so confused when I think of all the good God has for us and how much we waste and ignore our blessings.
Oh, my dear world, you are so different from what I remember as a child. You are so not what I hoped to find by this time in my life. You are so close to being extinct.
What can I do to help but PRAY?

will I be able to create full time every day? will it make a difference to anyone but me?
I need time to create. it heals my hurting broken lost soul.

slow down and enjoy every minute with those you love

It's all gone too fast.

invite your creativity out to play

An artist must take time to play, explore, experiment, and let the imagination flow.

It is what it is


art and writing beckons me
calls come and go
hopes float by
dreams sustain me
fears linger
pray I do
life happens to me
family and friends need me
joy is a goal
struggles cause conflict
worries consume me
pray I still do
the sun is my brother
the moon my sister
the trees are my monuments
the flowers my awards
grace is my home
prayers I lift
alone I am free
smothered I falter
love strengthens me
hatred weakens me
mercy is my support
prayers I make

Devotionals give us words to consider and focus on for our needs

this devotional page is 4 1/2 years old but it spoke to me then and it still does today...

my new self portrait

recognize your blessings and gifts and talents and SHARE THEM

where did her life go

Life has a way of getting past before we live in the present. Alzheimer's Disease speeds up the process. As a person's memories are twisted and confused and worse, taken completely, we wonder where did the life go?

there is a time for ugly art

Alzheimer is a cruel thing....
dementia is cruel, it robs loved ones as they were and the rest of us as we are...
memories fade and reverse and confuse.....
if only there was a cure

use what you have
