Shadowed Hearts

heart-shadow-web

She wanted him
more than he ever knew.
And, within just a few seconds,
he could make her feel like
a thousand years of being with him
was not enough.

 She was willing to take anything
because every second
and moment with him
was a piece of his life for her.

~~~~~

A bicycle pedal is the part of a bicycle that the rider pushes with their foot to propel the bicycle. It provides the connection between the cyclist’s foot or shoe and the crank allowing the leg to turn the bottom bracket spindle and propel the bicycle’s wheels. Pedals usually consist of a spindle that threads into the end of the crank and a body, on which the foot rests or is attached, that is free to rotate on bearings with respect to the spindle. info: wikipedia

Repurpose Plastic Bottles

st-thomas-11-recycled-ornaments-web

Our recent visit to St. Thomas was this past December.
While waiting for our tour bus to whisk us off to our designated tour spot,
we wandered through town and came across a park in the center of town.

We noticed red ribbons hanging from the branches and blowing in the wind.
As we walked closer we noticed other items hanging.
They were plastic bottles, tin cans, paper plates and CD discs.

One tree had nylon bags floating special thoughts and prayers messages inside
for family members who were no longer with them during the holiday season.

Prayers and messages were ceremoniously placed after the tree had been decorated.
The churches were made from paper tubes and cardboard boxes.

Groups hand painted each portion of the church according to their own creativity.

The red roofed white gazebo stood in the midst of all of these spirited gifts

created for the blessings of these departed souls.

A simple gesture from children from the ‘Glady’s A. Abraham Elementary School’

touched the hearts of all who stopped to view these loving gifts they’d made.

Art is the outer vesture of love.
Art, like love, is a force of oneness with the infinite.
When we create a piece of art,
we are really re-creating
or reflecting some
beauty of the Infinite.
