“When we love, we always strive to become better than we are. When we strive to become better than we are, everything around us becomes better too.” ― Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist

So I finished up this painting and hoping it dries for shipping in the next three weeks.  Our weather is so unpredictable.   We have actually had a bit of winter this past week. We had seventies on Tuesday and then a front came through bringing us back in the fifties during the day. Something special about having seasons. My body really likes them! I love fall, winter and spring. I am not a lover of the heat in the summer.

Have you ever met someone that holed up at home and seemed dark and bitter about life? Love is missing from their lives. They might have loved once or been loved once, but they have closed in because the love has faded and they are basically broken in spirit. I cannot imagine anyone likes to walk around angry and bitter at life and the world. That is where your smile comes in ... smiling to share the contagious feeling of love and life.  

Never forget to tell someone you love them and tell them why you love them.  When we step up to the plate and speak our hearts, it is a homerun.  Sharing love is sharing the light and lifting the burden of self doubt and hate. If you are a believer, it is even more powerful to share God's love.

Satisfy us in the morning with your unfailing love, that we may sing for joy and be glad all our days. Psalm 90:14
