Do Not Forget to Play

“Over the Mountains, Across the Plains, to Grandma’s House We Go” — Copyright 2012 by R.A. Robbins Available in the Espirational Gallery.

 

Do not forget to play in life

and really enjoy it.” 

  —Eileen Caddy

 


 

I believe that creating art is about play and having fun. 

Today’s art is “Over the Mountains, Across the Plains, to Grandma’s House We Go.”  This is a playful piece depicting a family’s adventures of driving cross country to visit Grandma in Florida for Christmas — and her response to their being late.  It is available for sale in the Espirational Gallery.

Seriousness is too boring

“Seriousness is too boring to the playful human condition.

A heart of stone that has a long face can never express love.”

Be Grateful

Copyright 2017 by R.A. Robbins

 

“Most of us never stop to consider our blessings;

rather,

we spend the day only thinking about our problems.

But since you have to be alive to have problems,

be grateful for the opportunity to have them. “

God Hallows the Ordinary

  “For Christians, every place they walk is, in a sense, holy ground.  We lose sight of the preciousness of our daily steps, that God hallows the ordinary that’s committed to Him.  Tourist who have visited Israel and have seen the places where Jesus walked often experience a sense of awe at being where Jesus was when He walked on earth.  Yet He lives today, and He still walks on earth–in our shoes.  Look around you, and see the holy ground on which you walk.” — Nick Harrison

 

 

We are talking about Holy Ground this month in The Espirational Community on Facebook.  Please consider this your invitation to join our community and participate in the discussion of this timely topic.

Thoughts of Unity

Copyright 2017 by R.A. Robbins

“If we are serious about dreaming our awakening into being and creating a peaceful, loving earth in which the heart, spirit and soul are the only true leaders, we must continue to keep our focus on thoughts of unity and all that truly brings us together.”
