you never know

I titled this post ‘You Never Know’ because you truly never know where your words, actions, or life can make a difference in the life of another. I’d like to share this story as an encouragement to you: to live your life openly, be generous with words of encouragement, and always be yourself, never apologizing for who you are (flaws and all!).

digital art

This morning, I decided to pull out my old Wacom digital drawing tablet. It took a little time to set up and get familiar with using it again, but I had a wonderful time drawing and messing around in Illustrator and Photoshop. I recently bought a pack of watercolor paints, so I’m looking forward to getting back into fine art painting as well. Until then, I’d like to share with you my first digital art piece of 2011.

It’s simply titled ‘Child with Butterfly’. The Chinese symbols in the red stamp stand for ‘Peace’. May it bring you a sense of peace as you look at it. Think of the simple joys of childhood. Remember how something as normal as a butterfly fluttering about could send you into a fit of laughter? Take a moment to thank God for the blessings in your life. We each have something to be thankful for.

Today, I’m thankful for the gift of life; for conversations with friends and strangers alike; for God’s provision and the value He places on my life; for the love I can give because I’ve been loved first.

What are you thankful for today?

i am… a coincidence?

Okay, so this post is going to be really short, but I had to share it with you.

Just one day after publishing my last post [titled “i am”], Kevin and I were checking out movie trailers on and came across a new documentary titled [yep, you guessed it] “I am”.


Since I don’t really believe in coincidences, I thought I should share this trailer with you. I’m in no way endorsing the film or anything in it, but I can say that the trailer intrigued me. It’s always amazing to see when someone has a near-death experience and how that begs them to question, “What am I living for?” Looks like Tom may have found a few answers.

I’ll definitely be watching this when it comes out to hear more of the story and Shadyac’s conclusions. Maybe we could spark up some conversations after that? In person, of course. 😉
