If you were to come into our home from our garage, through the laundry room, straight ahead you would find two delight-filled prints by Brian Andreas http://www.storypeople.com/ He says so much in a few well chosen words accompanied by his sparse, funky, engaging art.
Maybe without knowing about him, you've possible seen his work in gift shops around the country. One of our favorites is this greeting card I framed, and one I see every day as I head into the kitchen to make the morning coffee.
"...a failure of imagination..." In our strife-torn world, some hours or days, it's hard to imagine what all is taking place. There is darkness out there giving unfortunate birth to uncertainty, even fear. But that is not all that is "out there."
You and I are "out there" hopefully bringing words and acts of encouragement and peace, even to the strangers we will meet today. To look someone in their eyes (...how often we do not look at someone's eyes...), smile, nod and acknowledge their own existence on the planet, with us.......well, just imagine what might happen with that passing glance...that "thank you," not just a hurried, non-connecting "thanx"...with complementing and thanking them for the service they give you...?
At that moment you and I both have the world in our hands. What will you and I intentionally be about in our world this day? It only takes a moment to make a life-changing, life-enhancing difference...that only unique you can make. (74+298)
