Behind each book There is an author Behind each design Is a designer Behind each quilt Is a quilter Behind each sermon Is a pastor Behind each creation That is made Is a heart that may be tender And perhaps a bit afraid. Afraid they might be a failure At what they love to do But willing to take that chance And offer their heart to you For behind each product Is a heart that can be Hurt to it's very center By remarks from you and me. Where would we be without the contributions That those who God great talent has given What would our world look like Without those folks so driven. For although beauty of our earth Was done by God's own hands He so lovingly bestowed talent I nto His most precious creation -man. And He must watch us from His Heaven And beam with Fatherly pride As He sees those who use the talents given From their hearts He placed inside. Let us enjoy the beauty God gave us In the form of earth, land and sea But appreciate the gifts of others At every opportunity. And remember that behind each one Each precious work of artwork, poetry or prose Is a person, is a heart, is a spirit......... All of those. Thena
Fame is fleeting and fickle. I have been reading so many messages where ladies were hurting because of not making a design team, winning a contest or being published in a magazine, but yet they have these wonderful memories and wonderful pages recording those memories.
Embrace and enjoy each publication experience as it comes but don't mourn it if it doesn't. Enjoy every moment and spend this time in making wonderful memories, you can always make the pages later!
The life of a layout in a magazine is brief and fleeting. The life of a wonderful memory in the heart is eternal.
