Sometimes life provides life.
As this year is rapidly drawing to a close, think back to how you started. The dreams, the goals, is anything left unfinished? Did you get off track? What can you do now to refocus to move closer to your dreams?
Start by remembering what you are truly grateful for, especially those things right in front of us that we do take for granted.

A pen and pencil drawing of a sleeping puppy in a santa hat.
Hoping to capture the simplicity of the moment, when dreams are real and the troubles of this world fade away.
Simple outlines of the shape capture the subject and the black and white allow the viewer to recreate in color within their own minds. Enjoy!

An invisible storm swirls about me,
as I cry out for your mercy.
The winds cleave the words from me,
amidst the streaming tears of pain.
Mixed with the ceaseless pouring rains,
my tattered heart begs for grace.
The roar of thunder drowns out my cries,
I fall dumbstruck to my knees.
The blackness surrounds me from within,
a single light pierces through.
Casting shadows in the deep and dark,
a path down into the confusion.
Towards the dreams of dawns first light,
clinging to visions of hope and love.

With winter's cold and dark quickly
approaching, a gentle reminder of the
seasons inevitable changes.
The color and beauty reminds me everyday of God's faithfulness and the many simple things that come our way with no intention nor effort on our part.
