queen of hearts

© 2018 Marcia Pilar 020918  beautiful gift from a friend …thank you, dear Sabrina (click to visit shm ARTworks)

Child of the pure unclouded brow
And dreaming eyes of wonder!
Though time be fleet, and I and thou
Are half a life asunder,
Thy loving smile will surely hail
The love-gift of a fairy-tale.

Lewis Carroll
Prologue to Through the Looking Glass

But the wisdom from above is first of all pure. It is also peace loving, gentle at all times, and willing to yield to others. It is full of mercy and the fruit of good deeds. It shows no favoritism and is always sincere.

And those who are peacemakers will plant seeds of peace
and reap a harvest of righteousness.

James 3:17-18

Peace, she likes to nap in our garden. I’m learning a lot from her but have so far to go. Her beautiful eyes reflect all that is lovely and fair.

She is queen of the garden, surrounded by love and beauty and kindness.

My potting bench has become a gentler place than my art table these days.

And again.

Peace, teach me to be just like you, to let go

and sleep.

…true …noble …right …pure …lovely …admirable …excellent …praiseworthy

fix your thoughts on these.

Enjoy the little things in life
…for one day you’ll look back and realize they were the big things.

The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light.

But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness!

Matthew 6:22-23 KJV
