Welcome to my "Amazing Grace Artists" Blog!

Here is a little corner of the world devoted to all things to do with the "Amazing Grace Artists" Faith Based Art Group on Facebook and what we have going on on there and out in the world...Perhaps I can persuade you to join us if you haven't already!

I hope to at least be able to inspire you to create something, make you think, and maybe, just maybe, show you something new now and then! Most of all, I hope to give YOU, a safe and caring place to just relax and share your special, God Given artsy gifts with others! So be sure to leave comments if you are touched by anything here, and please-share your thoughts and ideas with us all! Art is for everyone-it comes from our hearts and souls, and I think we should share it with everyone and show them how easy living an art-filled, creative life can be. Be sure to watch for free product giveaways and contests also!

Summer Daisies

Happy Flowers

 Today on this stormy and windy Monday, simply a couple of poems I have written, and some watercolor postcards I have made for cancer patients...be well and "Happy Arting"!

  Cast Lives

We cast our lives upon the winds of chance
and wonder if we will ever dance.

While running down streets that have no end
and waiting for things that never come.

We wait, we dream, we dare, we try
to run, to fly, to laugh, to cry

All while standing still as stone
in a room of people, all alone.

I come to you with my soul bared
and wonder if you ever even cared
that I was not a perfect girl
who lived within a perfect world.

I bring you my heart's aches and pains
and all the baggage both pretty and plain
I wonder if you'll feel the same
when you see my soul is wild, not tamed.

I'm like an animal, small and scared.
Im looking for a life that's shared
with someone gentle that I can trust
whose ways are honest, tender and just.

Can I begin to let "us" stay
in this relationship for another day?
Can I rest in peace and just relax,
trusting the pain is in the past?
