HOPE brick at https://www.instagram.com/macinspcrnr
A bit of comfort
Springing up in time of need
Tiny flower of hope
Hope springs eternal in the human breast;
Man never Is, but always To be blest.
The soul, uneasy, and confin’d from home,
Rests and expatiates in a life to come.
—Alexander Pope, “An Essay on Man”
Today as I went out to visit my “Inspiration Rock Corner” to place a few new rocks I had painted, I happened to notice a tiny yellow flower blooming right next to the HOPE brick I had painted.
It seemed to match the little yellow flowers I had painted on the brick and I thought it not to be a co-incidence that the tiny flower had chosen that exact spot of all others in the yard to appear in bloom.
Plant seeds of hope in your heart. Give them plenty of love and attention. Then watch as your beautiful dreams bloom” – Amy Atherton …
Edwin Rolfe said,
“You can’t judge a book by its cover”
Jesus once said,
“You will know them by their fruits”
Don’t judge, examine fruit.
Life is passing by
Enjoy the living moments
While you have time
Savor every moment
Before it is gone
Grasping all those good times
While they’re in reach
Will give you good memories
A storehouse of treasures
It is often said that before you die your life passes before your eyes. It is in fact true. It’s called living. —Terry Pratchett

I am my mother’s face in the mirror,
As I speak her favorite quotes
To myself, that “This Too Shall Pass”.
I am dad’s voice echoing,
“Don’t Forget, Smell The Flowers”.
I am God’s Spirit,
To the world,

Humble abode, yet it’s the
One place where I can be
Every man’s castle

Seeking better days,
With some sunshine in life?
Looking for the light?
Are you standing in the sun
Or sitting in the shadows?
If you want light to come into your life, you need to stand where it is shining. ” —Guy Finley
“Keep your face to the sunshine and you cannot see a shadow. ” —Helen Keller

In US Bank’s Town Square.
His wisdom behooves
Those who listen,
Learn,and get involved
“Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn.”
“Either write something worth reading or do something worth writing.”
“You may delay, but time will not.”
