“The same law that shapes the earth-star shapes the snow-star. As surely as the petals of a flower are fixed, each of these countless snow-stars comes whirling to earth…these glorious spangles, the sweeping of heaven’s floor.”
What Shapes Us
This law I believe applies to all things live.
Can we all be glorious spangles?
Perhaps not. Perhaps yes.
I hope yes!
Are we capable of seeing the connection?
Can we try harder?
Can we open our eyes a little wider?
I hope yes.
The same law shaped our hearts.
When tragedy hits, we feel the hurt of others.
What shapes us is not a mystery;
It is divine.
It is intentional.
all of us
shaped in the same way.
Can you dig it?
Poem by Emily Dickinson #444
Painting by Melba Christie (c) 2015
A different language
That no other flower can
But when they speak to me
Somehow I understand
They stand tall in attention
listening very carefully
To the songs of the angels
their message is to spread your love
completely and openly
as often as you can.
This is why I try to paint
Sunflowers like Van Gogh
Although they may be a little rough
I know one thing is for sure.
I follow through with the message
Sunflowers were created to make.
Love is the most important thing in life
Make no mistake.
