The Art of Giving

Mixed media by RLHall on a beautiful alcohol ink background created & gifted by Kathie Lyke

The Art of Giving

We give of ourselves

when we give gifts of the heart:

Love, kindness, joy, understanding, sympathy, tolerance, forgiveness...

We give of ourselves

when we give gifts of the mind:

Ideas, dreams, purposes, ideals, principles, plans, inventions, projects, poetry...

We give of ourselvs

when we give gifts of the spirit:

Prayer, vision, beauty, aspiration, peace, faith...

The finest gift a man can give

in his age and time

is the gift of a constructive and creative life.

Unknown author - verse given to me by my Peruvian friend Elsa, who now lives in Sweden

For You...

Mixed media by RLHall on alcohol ink background by artist Kathie Lyke

Dear God:

The Artist reading this is beautiful, classy and strong, and I love them.

Help them live their lives to the fullest, creatively and consciously.

Please promote them and cause them to excel above their expectations.

Help them shine in the darkest places where it is impossible to love.

Protect them at all times, lift them up when they need you the most,

and let them know when they walk with you, they will always be safe.

Love you !!!!

(adapted from a forwarded email from a generous friend)
