48 DAYS UNTIL SPRING

Life is a Special Occasion!
Today is Inspire Your Heart With Art Day, which celebrates art and the effect it can have on your heart. Art is valued and appreciated for all sorts of reasons. The key to getting the most out of this day is being selective about your art, and choosing something that will inspire your heart rather than expire it.
If you can't see the Bright Side, polish the dull side
‘Cherish Every Moment of your Life'
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
What art offers is space — a certain breathing room for the spirit.
I do believe that art in all it’s many forms can inspire us. A few years ago, when I redecorated my living room, I purchased some new artwork to put on the walls. I wanted something that expressed a calming and peaceful effect and today’s pictures are of what I found.
None of the artwork was expensive but all of it was an expression of what I like. Before the renovation, I had pieces that had a patriotic theme. I liked that and the colors of red white and blue, but I was ready for something new. We all need a change now and then.
Looking at art can inspire us, make us creative, even improve our health. Anything that inspires feelings of awe and wonder, whether it’s a Van Gogh, a sunset or a symphony, is enough to boost our immune systems. So it’s best to get your daily does of wonder !
Art can also inspire faith. I once visited a museum that had a beautiful display of Crosses. Who knew that so many even existed. That visit inspired me to start collecting them and now have many hanging on the walls here in my dinning room. They are all works of art in their own right.
Everyone sees art in a different way, but I do think it inspires our hearts.
I hope you all have a RELAXING Sunday !
