Surrounded by Gratitude.

June 7, 2013





I have been working on it all week.

Each little painting a meditation of thanks.

Each one coming off my studio desk and into a frame… only to come back out and be concentrated on further.

That is how a thankful heart is… as you paint on the canvas of your heart… you walk away and find yourself even more deeply thankful….needing to add another layer of just how thankful you are, even more than moments before.

Habits becoming  a way of life.

A diet of gratitude.

An alter of thankfulness in which to lay a life of art upon.

An alter to offer up appreciation for the gifts of this life.

A sign to those still learning… what it means to live here in this Provision.

The ones who come behind will fall in step to offer up their own gratitude as they have seen it modeled as not a holiday but a way of life.

    I love every aspect of this post – the beautiful paintings, the cute little frames, your precious daughter, the heart behind your words, and the helpful reminder that I so needed to hear – to take time to meditate on gratitude and thankfulness, because oh how true and right and good it is that you ‘walk away and find yourself even more deeply thankful.’
