KINDNESS IN THE MAKING

Experiment in Kindness by Brandon Dayton

The moment has arrived…My writing class is now in session–Yea!  The first assignment is finding an image that represents kindness…that’s easy enough.  The image above struck a cord with me.  Notice the directional movement of the group, yet one person is going in the opposite way.  Isn’t this interesting?  Also notice the color of the main group is dark while the woman shines brightness around them.  Her hand points to the center of a bright butterfly yet only one man notices…hence unfolds the experiment in kindness.

Kindness is the language of the heart given freely and not necessarily earned.  Take for instance a smile will surprise and perk up someone’s mind.  Any act of kindness is free, fashionable and contagious.  So why not give it!

Just like in the image above…”If we all do one random act of kindness daily, we just might set the world in the right direction.”

  —Martin Kornfield

 

PUMPKIN MAGIC

Pumpkin by Yayoi Kusama

Pumpkins bring about poetic peace in my mind.  Pumpkins talk to me. Pumpkin as both humble and amusing.”

Yayoi fascinates me in that she finds the pumpkin to be a whimsical vegetable to represent an alternative self-portrait to obliterating her mental illness. In this fashion, Yayoi surrenders her madness, and her art animates energy in the visual and verbal.

Yayoi Kusama is bold and passionate and still creates art between Heaven and Earth.

WHAT IS PEACE?

“Peace is a virtue born out of the strength of the heart.”

–Spinoza

Let’s think this out in reverse.  Peace is no war, pain, hostility, turmoil, anxiety and so forth.

If we think like Saint Augustine, “Peace is the tranquility of order.”  What kind of order is this a part of our chaotic world?  The order of Love is what is needed to make peace happen.

“Peace is like a butterfly which, when pursued, is always beyond our grasp, but if you will sit down quietly, may alight upon you.”

–Nathaniel Hawthorne

People, we become the blessings of peace by ordering our lives in Love for God.

May this week’s transition into September bring you much peace and love.

ABOUT WRITING, PART 2

Writing a redemption story is like savoring a piece of chocolate melting delightfully in the mouth.

On looking back at my 3,600+ posts, they captivate a snapshot of my redemption stories through the people that have touched my life personally.  Writing such stories is not that difficult, especially if you bring to light your best heart encounters.  As you sit still in silence, your precious memories will unfold and you can begin to write boldly and share your precious events.

So now, why not write your own redemption tale?  In so doing, you will raise souls in need and your heart will prance with joy.

One more thought, Christ gave the world His redemption story; just follow his…

FINDING JOY IN WRITING

Throughout my upbringing and education I loved to take notes and journal my experiences.  Then when I took up an informal  writing course, I was encouraged to create this blog.  For those of you who have followed me since 2015, I bless you!  My thoughts have evolved as your “scribeforlove” to encourage anyone that comes my way to be attracted to God’s Way.  Since  beginning this satisfying journey, I surmise this to narrow my popularity, but I cannot refuse God’s inspiration to remain true to my calling.

“The most important things are the hardest things to say…Writing is refined thinking.”

–Stephen King

Like in most of King’s writing, I scribe with a sense of expressing good versus evil, as the Lord prompts me to do so.

“Good is the Word of the Lord.”

–2 Kings 20:19

“Writing isn’t about making money, getting famous, etc.  It’s about enriching the lives of those who will read your work, and enriching your own life; as well.  It’s about getting up, getting well and getting over.  Getting happy okay?  Getting happy.”

–Jeffrey Keeten

This quote propels me to continue writing, bringing joy to my soul.

So grateful am I for your ever presence here.

A REASSURANCE

Pink Tulip by Linda Mullen

“Hold your eyes on God and leave the doing to him.  That is all the doing you have to worry about.”

–Jane Frances de Chantal

This exquisite pink flower is a good and perfect gift from above.  It reminds me of the motivation that art expresses such beauty to write about.  My journals and blog posts hold many treasures.  This appreciation for beautiful things to share comes from Jesus and his anointed seers and prophets.  

“Do you know that Jesus loves flowers, dancing and sweets?

–Kat Kerr, seer

This thought tickles me no end.
