“People are like stained glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealed only if there is light within.” – Elisabeth Kubler-Ross
I am always on the lookout for expressions of The Twelve Gifts.
Yesterday, at The Farmers’ Market in Winter Garden, Florida, I found several. I’d like to share three with you. One is this delightful bottle lamp that features the word “Joy.” I see this lamp as an expression of Beauty and Talent too. Another is the Elisabeth Kubler-Ross quote that accompanies this whimsical creation. The third is the woman who makes these unique lamps. Her name is Kathleen Bee. I saw pretty much all the gifts in her in the course of a conversation. If you wish, you can see more of her work by visiting: www.souljourneydesigns.com.
Consider trying this yourself…
Today, be on the lookout for examples of Strength, Beauty, Courage, Compassion, Hope, Joy, Talent, Imagination, Reverence, Wisdom, Love, and Faith. Like a child on a treasure hunt, look up, down, and all around. Look within too. And listen, with your heart as well as your ears. With the intention to find examples, you are likely to notice several. Perhaps many! Be ready to notice not only The Twelve Gift words in such places as quotes, advertising, conversations, and music… watch for demonstrations of these gifts in action. For even more fun, deliberately put one or more of these gifts in action. Let your inner Beauty sparkle… no matter what. Let the light within YOU shine!
