Summer! I hope you doing well and that you are enjoying the summer weather! I am. I have already taken a swim in the icy cold southern Swedish ocean. Today is the last day of school for my husband and we are looking forward to hanging out and resting up in God's beautiful creation. We have had very warm weather with very little rain here in Sweden and that makes the crops die. Many of our farmers have experienced a 50% drop in their crops which is very sad. Rain is so important for them. We are hoping and praying for a change here.
In life, you can feel periods of drought too. Sometimes life seems equal to hard work and no play. Sometimes we have conflicts between us and loved ones that leave us lonely. Life is tough. We need periods of renewal and we definitely need unconditional love - tons of it in order to keep pumping love out to those around us.
Unconditional love is like water for the soul. As I continue to work on my music and books I keep reflecting on the fact that unconditional love is the key to happiness. Without it, we feel forced to prove our worth by what we do and what we own, constantly comparing ourselves to others. We all need to know that we are loved for who we are.
I have this graffiti painting that I did a few years ago hanging in the Featherhead Media studio. It is a constant reminder that I have to take time to fill my unconditional love heart account with the love of God in order to keep on loving a broken world. God's unconditional love meets us where we are and takes us to where we need to be. In him there is real satisfaction for the soul through Jesus Christ. It's just like Jesus said.
Threadless.com This painting has become the theme of all that we do here at Featherheadmedia, so much so, that I have now created various products on www.threadless.com with the "Love in/Love out" motive on them. I have designed a whole series of products that can help remind you to fill your love account daily. At my "store" on Threadless you can find t-shirts, mugs, notebooks, gym bags, pillows and more. The profit I make there (minus taxes) will help me pay my bills. It's a win win! If this goes well, I'll add more items soon. Here's a sneak peek of the stuff I've created with the "Love in/Love out" theme:
Here's hoping that your summer is warm and full of fun! Until next time!
