My art and writing are two channels I use to express gratitude for all the goodness in my life.  Being creative requires me to step out of my comfort zone and explore new avenues.  When I write and paint from the heart, everything makes sense.  I am grateful for the opportunity to share my joy with you.

Feel the Light

FullSizeRender 28 Faith is the bird that feels the light and sings when the dawn is still dark.  ~ Rabindranath Tagore

I sometimes wonder how we are able to continue to have faith, especially during times when we are hit with one challenge after another.  It takes such strength to continue singing while the dawn is still dark, doesn't it, and yet we do, or should I say, I do.

I do because I believe there is a reason for everything that happens in my life, even the challenges, and if I stay strong those reasons will reveal themselves to me.  If I stay strong I will learn lessons that will teach me how to rise above hardship, how to see and appreciate the smallest of blessings.

I believe that during the darkest of times there are those who lift us up on their shoulders and ease our burden, lighten our load.  I believe that loved ones that have gone before us are never far from our side, especially during the moments when we need them most.

I believe in the power of Love.

I believe in miracles.

I have faith.
