Opening

At some point the darkness set it. I’m not quite sure when it happened. It settled around me without me noticing. It crept across the sky like a veil and blotted out the light. This shadowy sky offered no twilight, no sparkling stars to give me even the slightest bit of hope …..only the massive expanse of darkness.

I kept moving, trying to find some sign of light, some form in the shadows. But none came. I continued moving driven only by the hope inside me that I would find someone, something in this gloomy sea of emptiness.

And after awhile I saw it …in the distance…an opening of light. I was ecstatic. Finally! Something to move towards! As the light reached me, I saw in it patterns and shapes and colors. Where there had been only shapeless murk around me now there was vibrant color, forms and best of all …..HOPE.

I could not get there fast enough….

Love Dance

When you love, it’s like a dance. You give and you receive, you ebb and flow, sometimes everything is peachy and other times turbulent, but when love is at the center it is all wonderful and redemptive. There’s nothing like it in the world – a true love relationship that excites and delights. It’s one thrilling dance where the music never stops.

Compassion

Are you having ‘one of those days’? You know the kind…. a day that makes you feel discouraged, knocks the wind out of you and makes you want to slump around with your head down just waiting for tomorrow. We ALL have had times like that in our lives! But the best remedy for days like that is to receive compassion and encouragement to keep on going. Who has recently given you a boost of encouragement? Or who has been compassionate with you when you were down and out? Tag them here! This painting is for them. It’s all about giving love and receiving love when we need it the most.

Service

What does it mean to serve someone? When you give to someone else you are pouring yourself into that person via your energy, your time and your resources. You are lifting that person up, refreshing them, assisting them and helping them stay afloat.

Service can be as simple as a waitress bringing you a glass of water that refreshes your body or as complex as buoying up a friend by being there for them in a time of crisis – day or night- no matter what they require.

And so this idea of service takes on a water-like quality for me – that when we all serve and help each other, together we stay afloat.
