Artist Samantha Keely Smith paints breathtaking abstract landscapes that resemble the swirling waters of the ocean. Using oil paint, enamel, and shellac, Smith builds up multiple translucent layers of color, alternating between soft brushstrokes and large, sweeping gestures to evoke crashing waves, surging tides, and stormy floods.

You are not a burden.
You are not a bother.
You enhance the lives of others.
People smile, not groan, when you text them.
A comedian changes your immediate mood but not your worldview. An artist changes your worldview even if you keep your mood.
Some people think in pictures, some in ideas. I think entirely in words.

Why should I feel lonely? is not our planet in the Milky Way? This which you put seems to me not to be the most important question.

My friend Maggie, at the young age of 34, just found out she has a twin, and now it’s up to all of us to help her find them!
I love a mystery!

When someone doesn’t fit your stereotypical view of a Christian, you’ve already shortened the arm of God.
Everyone is accountable, but everyone is also being chiseled in their personal relationship with Christ — and you are not the judge of that. You don’t get to judge someone’s life over a tiny slice of their lifetime.
Do you ever just sit and stare at your bookshelf and take out your favorite books and feel the covers and slide them back on the shelf or is that just me
