Share the Joy Thursday–Joining the Circle of Love

My friend Spadoman is being encircled with love.

(For Joe – 12X12 Canvas, acrylic and collage)

I am a part of the circle.

And I am joined by some incredibly strong and loving hearts.

I took some time yesterday to create.

That creative time helped me focus on sending my friend love from deep within me

and joining into the loving web that surrounds him.

There is a special Soul Joy in that.

In getting away from the worry, the wanting to help but being unable to in the physical ways,

and instead, just focusing on what the Heart does best.

Sending big love and light.

We are with you, Man. And I know you feel it.

Meri generously brings us together each Thursday to Share the Joy.  It’s a beautiful thing !

She is also sharing wonderful things by and for women of substance, on her new site, Finally Me. My recent post Just Jump In has been featured there today. Thanks so much for the recognition, Meri !

This beautiful thing is also bringing me much joy this week.

Miss Pumpkin is a total love bug ! She is settling in very well and will probably be able to meet her feline brothers and canine sister gradually within the next day or two. Nothing like a cat who give head butt kisses ! Love that !

I hope you find joy in sharing your heart and love today, Beautiful Ones !

Big, big love !

Dear Kim,
Your Artwork for Joe brought tears to my eyes and the circle you created with stone hearts and candles, a little vigil altar of love for him. I have been bearing up well but for some reason your entry finally made me cry. I think that is a good thing. It is just beautiful. Thank you so much for sharing it and for what you have done for Joe.
xoxox,
Noelle

You have such a beautiful heart and soul and it shines through in your art.

One of my kitties give head butt kisses, too!

lyle said...

kim, what a wonderful picture! I am sure joe will enjoy it! and what a great kitty.

Meri said...

Kim, your post is already generating comments on FinallyMe. People love seeing how the page developed, stage by stage. It gives them confidence to do it on their own.

And as for the painting you did for Joe, it's perfect -- feathers, dream-catcher and all. I trust that the love is going straight to the broken places.

Chel said...

So beautiful. And so much love to Joe - will travel over there and send him some support after I leave this comment.

Okay, your kitty? THAT FACE!! Oh my gosh. SO sweet. Sweet, sweet Pumpkin! Looking at her makes my heart so happy. Now I need to go find my kitties (no head bumpers in my crowd, but they are all LOVIES in other ways, so I am so grateful!) and give them some love.

Miss Pumpkin is a sweetheart :)
