I Quiet My Mind – Featured Art Print

 

I’m featuring this art print this week for a couple of reasons. First and foremost is the prayer on this print and secondly the print was created from one of my many hikes in the Pacific Northwest.

My wife and I have been blessed with three wonderful daughters and have spent the past weekend in the Seattle area participating in the wedding of our youngest and the last of the three to get married. The ceremony was incredible and my third walk down the aisle with one of my girls. The time we spent with family on both sides is priceless and I am so grateful for my siblings and their children flying in for this celebration. It was an incredible weekend and gives me pause to reflect on how blessed we are.

Mrs. T and I got married in college, waited until our late 20’s to start a family and had the joy of raising three girls (I had to readjust my communication style as I grew up with two brothers and one sister…my poor sister). The time goes by so quickly and has made us very thankful for our family and friends who have blessed our lives. I continue to give thanks for the blessings of life.

May this find you and yours well, happy and blessed…even when the road of life gives you twists and turns.  Kirt

Lift Me Up – Featured Art Print

The art print I am featuring today is called “Lift Me Up”. The art print itself was created using a gothic oil technique, giving the hot air balloons an old world look. I put a personal prayer of mine on as an overlay, with the prayer and subject working hand in hand. I think all of us from time to time feel tired, weary and frustrated. I reach out with this simple prayer…..Thoughts?

Thanksgiving Thankfulness

For those of us in the United States, we are getting ready to celebrate Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving means different things to different people, turkey, large meals with large groups of family and friends, prelude to Black Friday and the holiday shopping season… just to name a few. This is a good time of year to slow down for a moment to reflect on the many blessings we have received and our thankfulness and gratitude for them.

Have a great Thanksgiving weekend and enjoy family and friends!!

Inspirational Quotes Day Two – Quote Challenge

Last week, I was challenged to a “quotes quota” by my friend Melinda with purpleslobinrecovery. I love her willingness to share her life and her openness with all of her struggles. If you are not familiar with her blog, I strongly encourage dropping by!! Thank you Melinda for the nomination!!

The rules of the challenge are as follows:

  • Thank the blogger, who nominated you.
  • Publish 3 quotes on 3 consecutive days in your blog. It can be your own, or from a book, movie or from anyone who inspires you.
  • Nominate 3 more bloggers to carry on this endeavor.

What rule doesn’t need tweaked occasionally, so as not to put anyone on the spot, I will adhere to #1 & #2 and for #3, I will list three blogs each day that I find “Inspirational” to go with the theme of my three day quote challenge. ( I find so many of the blogs I follow fit in that category, that I am literally pulling three names from a hat…ok plastic bowl actually…at random to recognize each day. )


 

Day Two: Quotes from the New Testament:

Matthew 11:28 (NCV)

Whenever I am exhausted (and I don’t mean physically), this verse gives me pause to stop and lean on Him.


 

1 Corinthians 13: 4-8 (NCV)

Such a great reminder of what love truly is and isn’t.


Matthew 17: 20 (NIV)

Such an encouraging passage to remind us that anything is possible if we have faith.

Day One: Quotes from the Old Testament:

Proverbs 3: 5-7 (NCV)

This one rings home with me….we think we know it all, but we don’t. How many times has something come into your life you never imaged and it completes a dream or a need?


Psalm 118:24 (NKJV)

Each day is a new wonder and every time the sun comes up, a new opportunity is given to each of us.


Psalm 23:1-6 (NKJ)

Bottom line, He is always with us to comfort and guide us no matter what the circumstances are.

Inspirational Thoughts for the Week – Featured Art Prints

Today, I wanted to share a few thoughts with you. Each of us has a story…our successes, loves and struggles. We all know someone at any given time who is struggling and suffering (many times that person is ourself). Sometimes the struggle is self inflicted, sometimes it’s just circumstances. We all encounter challenges as we walk this journey called life. Some challenges are but bumps in the road while others are almost insurmountable mountains. It’s how we handle ourselves as we encounter these struggles that grow us and shape us. The beauty of being a blogger is that you get to touch a number of lives and share in others joys and struggles. There is a camaraderie that is formed and even though you haven’t met each other in person, you take on an ownership and you care about their lives and their journey. With some of the struggles a number of you have shared this last week, I wanted to give back some inspirational reminders that I have created and to be honest the creation has been more for myself than anyone else…

Perseverance….

The journey requires “perseverance” to get from point A to point B. What could possibly tell the visual story more than a rock climber who is a small red dot on a very large piece of rock slowly making his way up against great odds. He will succeed even when it looks impossible, because of his perseverance.

Faith…

Faith is at the center of all that I am and without it, I am nothing. Life grows and flourishes around that central aspect. Love, family, laughter and living all revolve around this central theme. Each aspect is but an extension of it. Love…put others first because of your love for them. Laughter…don’t take yourself too seriously, enjoy the moment. Live…live life to the fullest as our time here is limited. Family…our core support group. Take care of each other.

Thankfulness…

Greeting each day with a sense of thanksgiving. We are all blessed in many different ways. Do we take the time to realize it and give thanks for it on a daily basis? The blessings we receive come in many different forms and are often very subtle, yet incredibly powerful.

Just trying to focus on some positive elements and to thank you for all of your support. Have a great rest of the week!! Thoughts?
