|It's Summertime! Remember to stay cool, drink plenty of liquids, have fun, and be good to one another. God Bless You Guys!|
Let your heart not be troubled, and allow The Lord to comfort and guide you.
This year, break your *own* mold, and step out of your old habits of the years before. Be extra good to yourself, so when someone may need you, you have even more to give.
Don't shrug off how much you can bless someone today. A nice word, said in love, can change a person's life!
Be good to someone today everyone, and show them the love of Christ.

Personal Quote: "I want to decrease, so God can increase"
Generations of Catholics have admired this young saint, called her the "Little Flower", and found in her short life, more inspiration for own lives than in volumes by theologians.
Yet Therese died when she was 24, after having lived as cloistered Carmelite for less than ten years. She never went on missions, never founded a religious order, never performed great works. The only book of hers, published after her death, was an brief edited version of her journal called "Story of a Soul." (Collections of her letters and restored versions of her journals have been published recently.) But within 28 years of her death, the public demand was so great that she was canonized.
I created my previous version, as there are no laughing photographs of the Saint, so I thought it would be nice to create an artwork depicting her laughter(you can find my first version in my DA gallery in the 'Iconography' folder). This version was a request to create a custom, featuring many of the same details, but slightly different in it's own way. In this one, I also decided to add a little finch bird on her shoulder.
Prints of this piece will be available in my shop on 4-22-15. Feel free to check here to see it's availability.
