Abstract in Architextures

The artist is a receptacle for emotions that come from all over the place: from the sky, from the earth, from a scrap of paper, from a passing shape, from a spider’s web.
— Pablo Picasso

Echinacea Imaginarium


“You can please some of the people all of the time, you can please all of the people some of the time, but you can’t please all of the people all of the time”.”
― John Lydgate

Today’s photo is a color interpretation of the B&W photo I used in yesterday’s post, Echinacea Monochromis. Having learned that at least one of my readers didn’t care for monochrome flowers, this is my effort at reconciliation. I hope you like it!

Echinacea Monochromis

“Never allow anyone to rain on your parade and thus cast a pall of gloom and defeat on the entire day. Remember that no talent, no self-denial, no brains, no character, are required to set up in the fault-finding business. Nothing external can have any power over you unless you permit it. Your time is too precious to be sacrificed in wasted days combating the menial forces of hate, jealously, and envy. Guard your fragile life carefully. Only God can shape a flower, but any foolish child can pull it to pieces.”
— Og Mandino

Today I am sharing the video of my favorite Sarah McLachlan song, which also happens to be one of her oldest. You know; back when she wasn’t quite so depressing to listen to! (Love ya, Sarah!)

Spay the Strays

Today I thought I’d share another desktop wallpaper. This one was designed to help spread the word about a very important and worthy organization that operations locally called “Spay the Strays”. This volunteer organization helps feed and care for feral cat colonies throughout Osceola County, including medical services, spaying, neutering, fostering and finding homes for rescued kittens and adoptable feral cats. If you’d like to help with something even as simple as a cat food donation, please visit their website or Facebook page.

Distorted Love: The Toll Of Our Christian Theology On The LGBT Community

earlharrisphotography.com:

Though not my usual fare, I am re-blogging this post because I am so impressed by it’s poignant look at a very real condition. I have long said that the majority of Christianity will have to answer one day to the people that it has turned away from Christ through intolerance. It’s refreshing to see a pastor who’s finally caught on and is sharing the message.

Love doesn’t always look like love.

When I published this blog post two weeks ago, I was prepared for some people to applaud it, and for others to condemn it. That’s what happens whenever you put an opinion out there.

I was fully prepared for the waves of both support and hostility that accompany any vantage point on anything, especially a controversial topic like Sexuality. 

What I was not prepared for in any way, were the literally hundreds and hundreds of people who have reached out to me personally, to thank me for bringing some healing and hope to their families. Parents, children, siblings, and adults have confided in me (some for the first time anywhere), telling of the pain, and bullying, and shunning they’re received from churches, pastors, and church members; from professed followers of Jesus.

Scores of people from all over the world have shared with me their…
