“She left pieces of her life behind her everywhere she went. It's easier to feel the sunlight without them, she said.” ― Brian Andreas, Story People: Selected Stories & Drawings of Brian Andreas

Sometimes I find these quotes and they truly take hold of my heart and soul.  This is one of those. We carry so much of life with us and because of it we remain distracted to the 'sunlight' or things God has sent to us.  When you are over involved, lost trying to help someone battle their storms, taking on too much to carry in life. . .  YOU MISS OUT.  You are so busy doing other things you fail to feel the sunlight and gifts God is sending to you. 

The painting is resting... and I am starting something new while we take a break.  

 "Come, descendants of Jacob, let us walk in the light of the LORD." Isaiah 2:5
