"Not until I felt your sunshine, did I realize that I had been in the shade. Not until I saw all your colors did I realize that mine had faded. not until I heard your dreams, did I realize that I was still sleeping. And not until I experienced my life with you, did I realize that I was barely breathing.  Suzy Kassem, Rise up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem.

This painting always make me smile... a big smile with contentment. I love the colors bursting across and the herd of horses moving forward. This is a beginning, a middle and an end in so many ways.  God is a beginning, a middle and a never ending. His love and grace endure forever. In turn I commit my work and my art to His glory and rejoice that His love holds me close each day. 

He is the ALPHA and the OMEGA. God has existed always and will continue throughout time. Not until you feel His love and his sunshine will you realize how much you have lived in the 'shade'.  Not until you look up into the sky to see his colors painting your world will you realize how faded you are. Not until you realize he knows your desires and dreams and is working to bring the best to you... will you begin to realize your life is with him... to live and breathe and have a purpose.
