“He who kisses joy as it flies by will live in eternity's sunrise.” ― William Blake

Summer thoughts sent me back to a memory when I saw this painting in my archives.  My cousin Dawn was visiting from Florida with her granddaughter.  One morning before they were to fly home I took the little girl into my studio. I think she was about six ... and I painted this painting. Part of the joy of this little one watching me filled my soul as I painted... the sun was just coming up  outside and seeing her face light up watching these colors layer together... I fell in love with painting all over again. 

Every child's smile is like a sunrise ... a burst of light filling our lives and space.  Keeping our grandson Noah, who is now 8 months old... has been days filled with light and joy. He constantly smiles and grins and now is learning so many new words.  God is good.

He is like the light of morning at sunrise on a cloudless morning, like the brightness after rain that brings grass from the earth.’ 2 Samuel 23:4
