She has put "one foot in front of the other" more times than anyone I know. The elegance & grace with which she has done that has kept many shadows at bay - for others whose lives she has illuminated as well as for herself. Continue reading
Your artwork, swirling & blooming out and around us, is at least as luminous as this poem. The light you draw spins and fans and turns just as do you, "knowing your heart will break but turning it still." Thank you, Liz

Does unwrapping morning's gift "a ribbon at a time" take too long? Only if we have decided that rushing is more important than living. Continue reading

Note: offered by Liz Sorensen Wessel I’ll Tell You How The Sun Rose ~by Emily Dickinson I'll tell you how the sun rose,-- A ribbon at a time. The steeples swam in amethyst, The news like squirrels ran. The hills untied their bonnets, The bobolinks begun. Then I said softly... Continue reading
You and your angel captured a LOT of magic for all of us, Liz. Happy New Year.

Happy is nice but joyful is better. Happiness is a bouncing ball that can sail out of bounds. Joy can endure. It is the light that does not go out when storms blow in. Happiness is fed by events without. Joy is fed by gratitude from within. Renew gratitude every day & it will illuminate joy in your life. Have a Joyful New Year filled with gratitude.

Shared by Liz Sorensen Wessel. Something so whimsical & light of heart as this little angel who perches within the freshness of an evergreen. Even more extraordinary is the tradition of a living tree standing majestically in our living rooms adorned with baubles, each with a story of its own.... Continue reading
Very grateful for your words of affirmation, Liz.
"using our God-given gifts..." Thank you, Terry.

It is the best gift you can receive & the hardest to accept. It is the gift of gratitude - from you to yourself. Breathe in the light that flows from every kind thing you have done. As you celebrate Jesus' birth bathe in the joy of your own. Continue reading
"Onto our world Love is born." What a magnificent drawing, Liz - wonderful bright yet soft energy. This should be a Christmas card also, eh? And the Dickens quote from Christmas Carol is also classic. Thanks so much.

Thank you so much, Liz. Yes. Bitter-sweet. Thank you for the way you understand the feel of loss that comes in the midst of great memories.
You are such a kind sou to have given this quiet tribute to your days and your fellow staff at Castle Point. We Chapmans must have a gene for sentimentality! Thank you, Terry.

Advent reflection shared by Liz Sorensen Wessel The meaning of Christmas can become obscured by commercialism and the whirlwind of activities that accompanies this season. We worry, about so much to do and so little time. It can crowd out the mystery and beauty of love's unfolding. Quiet reflection reveals... Continue reading

Organizational living kills many of our truths. Some people may not like this picture. But because the truth of this image actually lies in decency no educated adult should be offended. "If you are going to tell people the truth, you had better make them laugh or they will kill you," Oscar Wilde wrote. Yet many lack humor not to mention an understanding that art is the opposite of pornography. Continue reading

Reflection offered by Liz Sorensen Wessel Advent Poem by Rainer Maria Rilke In the winter forest the wind drives the flock of snowflakes like a shepherd, And a fir tree senses how soon she will be blessed with candle-light, and strains to hear. She shelters the white ways with her... Continue reading

Time tricks us, Reality fools us most & we are brief breaths across earth's face. But this is the stage for our drama, our comedy & your healing. This is the pale blue dot on which we whisper our dreams to each other before we voyage, ourselves, to a different consciousness. Continue reading

Reflection by Liz Sorensen Wessel: Parting with apt affection I embraced and bid Tom farewell; his care package in hand for the long trip home. The road hugged the river’s edge, we passed the covered bridge on the left and I felt compelled to stop at the Old Jelly Mill,... Continue reading

Forty percent of Americans nap after Thanksgiving turkey. What if they took a 30 minute walk instead &, along the way, considered their fitness balance? HOW WOULD YOUR LIFE CHANGE if you took one of those walks every day? Continue reading
Yes. Gratitude is surely at the heart of all great prayers - Thank you to God rather than asking God for more. Thank you, Liz. Thank you, Terry. Your watercolor, Liz, says a wordless and beautiful thank you.
