On this date I went to the club house to read and write while listing to music.  I’ve been asking God for answers to prayers and for inspiration.  Amazing what we hear when we change locations, whether a quiet place or not so quiet but different.

Other than the music being piped in it was quiet in the community club house with no one else around.  It afforded me the time to clear my mind, to allow inspiration and wisdom to flow inward.  So I put my headphones on, and chose a relaxing music  station on Pandora.

A lovely piece started and caught my attention.  I looked at the screen and saw it was from Adoration by David Nevue and titled “Just As I Am”.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UxcPPfSVyRs  I sat mesmerized by the music, and at that moment giving myself to God – Just As I Am, because I know He loves me unconditionally, even when I make dumb decisions.

Next from the piano of Chris Rice on his album The Living Room Sessions came “Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing”  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hps2_qf8hLk and I began remembering my blessings.

That was followed by The Hymns Collection b Anthony Burger and the piece titled “There is Power in The Blood/Nothing but the Blood/at Calvary”. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j74XbGtG0kY I wondered about the differences of working through blood, sweat, and tears; or through peace, joy, and the beautiful inspiration walking the pathways of our minds.

God’s gifts of various art forms to those who are so inspired, are then passed on to others in the form of encouragement,  peace within,  inspiration.

All of these were gifted to me this day.  And the final two pieces were just what I needed as part of this special time through music …  “Be Still My Soul” by Chris Rice, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_PglFWGZHy8 and “Peaceful Seclusion” by Nature on: Waterfalls.

How beautiful such peace and calm washes over me, and my forever gratitude to God, my Heavenly Father through His son Jesus Christ for the gifts He bestows on all those who are inspired to create such as these.

Heart

You opened your arms to welcome me
You spoke as to a friend
You smiled as we passed
Your heart whispered,
As it flowed alongside mine
“Come Home”

Your charm and beauty inspire me
Your soul reaches out and touches me
Your spirit fills me with endless possibilities, and
Calls Me Home

You wrap me in a warm embrace,
As if a long parted lover
You fill me with joy and comfort
A sense deep inside, that you are
Calling Me Home.

When I first got my little gardenia plants I read about planting and caring for them.  It was recommended that when a blossom comes out, that it is a good idea within a couple days to cut the flower and put in water indoors to enjoy for a few more days.  So I did just that with this first one, put it in a martini glass to set next to my computer where I can get a whiff of that wonderful Gardenia scent and enjoy the beauty of the white blossom.  I took some photos.  Enjoy.

I decided to share another of my favorites of Michael’s works of art.  It reminds me of the times when I am in a space of time by myself; and of Little One the protagonist in my book Little One~End of Journey Alone.

I have been working on a serious piece for my post, but decided I need more time to think on it. So I decided to share a beautiful work of art by a friend of mine that is more peaceful than reading the post I am working on 🙂

This is the first piece I ever saw of Michael Cox’s art and still one of, if not my favorite.
He titled it “Together”… if only we all could work together and be more loving it would be a beautiful world. Thanks Michael.
