I have already talked about the Altered Reality and Whimsical Light and Bright areas of my world of digital collage art. Now I would like to invite you into my Encourage and Inspire world. When you go to my Gallery page and click on Gallery of Encourage and Inspire, you will notice something different about this art gallery. It is the only area where I have combined words and digital collage art.
The words are not random words or words that I have copied from another source. The words I use here come from my book, Spirit and Heart Words to Encourage and Inspire. That book is based on words written in my journals for over a 20-year period. I started journaling as part of my study and worship time. My faith is central to my life and my journaling became a way not only to write about what I was studying, but to write down what I was going through. I was a registered nurse for 40 years and faced many difficult challenges along the way. In my times of pain and distress, I would cry out to God, writing down what came out of my heart. I also learned to listen to the Holy Spirit and wrote down the words that came to me.
I gathered these words together and in December of 2018, I published Spirit and Heart Words to Encourage and Guide. Over a year later, I published the second edition Spirit and Heart Words to Encourage and Inspire in both paperback and eBook format.
Now, I have taken words that brought comfort, inspiration, encouragement and direction to me and I am sharing them with you, not only in book form but in combination with my digital collage art. I try to balance the art with the words, so art does not overcome the words, but enhances them. There are times in everyone’s life where things look hopeless, or you feel frustrated, or even afraid. I understand, because I have been there. It is the desire of my heart to reach out to you and share some of the words that strengthened me in my faith and helped to keep on going, even when I felt like giving up.
