Thought for the week....
Everyone has talent; what is rare is the courage to follow the talent to the dark place where it leads. ...Erica Jong
"He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall he not with Him also freely give us all things?" Romans 8:32
Painting of the day
As promised I am sharing a completed painting each day, this one has been done in one of my art journals and say 'Release your potential and walk into your blessings.!
I am sharing some love with those who are also taking part in the challenge, it's not everyone whose blog starts with the letter A, but a few of them for you to start with....

When you look out of your window in the morning, what do you see, really see. What sounds can you hear - from the car passing to the rushing wind as it blows through the trees, do you hear the birds chattering or rain drops falling? can you hear the movement in your house, the door creaking, a cupboard closing, the laughter of your child?.
Don't let another day pass without really taking note, how can you contribute in a positive way to your surroundings, and make it better for the next generation? As you go about your day take the time to really appreciate what you have.
Tomorrow kicks of with the first A-Z April Challenge post, and its been great making the preparations for it. Don’t forget that the clocks go forward today, so you gain extra day light. It really does make a difference and the evenings will be brighter as well.
With April being a celebratory month for me my posts will reflect that, I will be holding a daily celebration of life and hope to encourage you in the process!
I look forward to seeing your comments and insights along the way. The preparations have been made, the table set and all that’s missing is you. You will definitely get something out of being part of the process come and take the time this month to share a piece of you!
I lift up my eyes to the hills – where does my help come from? My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth... Psalm 121:1-2
Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart ...Psalm 37.4
for riches do not endure forever, and a crown is not secure for all generations

It has come round to that time of the year again, where thousands of bloggers around the world have made preparations for taking part in one of the biggest challenges of the year – the A-Z April Challenge!
If your new and have not yet heard of it, you in for a treat, and need to check out the A-Z challenge blog for details. If you are an old hand and you’ve taken part before, then you know you’re in for a month of inspiration, connection, insights, laughter, creativity, passion and more as you visit and take part in what can be an assault course of planning, preparing and sharing your posts. There are some great tips in keeping yourself motivated, and staying with the challenge Here
This is my third year and I must say I have been looking forward to it. It’s a great way to visit blogs that you may have not come across, make new connections and generally feast on the breath of variety of posts that are sharing during the month of April. Last year my posts were about my experience as a carer and I found it great to be able to articulate and share what I have been going through. You are welcome to take a look at some of the posts I shared last year - Here
This year is a celebratory year for me and I feel that despite what you are going through or have been through we have to celebrate our lives and the talents that we possess finding ways to use them to bless others. Each day for 26 days I will be sharing an encouraging word alongside a piece of art that I have been working on, and also linking to a few fellow bloggers that are also on this journey for you to check out.
I hope to bring you a visual feast for your eyes that will encourage you to tap into your creativity, and encourage me to complete some more art work! I look forward to linking up with you on this journey and encourage you to visit the many others that are taking part as well. If you haven yet signed up you can do so below, you will not regret it!
