“What an artist is for is to tell us what we see but do not know that we see.”
“Artists must be sacrificed to their art.
Like bees, they must put their lives into the sting they give.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson
“Every artist writes his own autobiography.”
- Bloggers are artists too. Novelists, poets, photographers, gospel singers, & storytellers are all artists. All ‘great gifts’ cometh from who? (Hint: He has a 3-letter name beginning with G and ending with D). Christian bloggers at their best are anointed artists.
- When you write a post (or poem) that people like, or are inspired by, give Thanks to the ‘gift giver’, his son, & the Holy Spirit!
- When you see a post that you like, or hear a choir sing in a way that ‘touches you’, let the blogger (or choir director) know how you feel.
- I pay tribute to all the bloggers who I follow and ‘like’; I pay tribute to the Gospel artists, and gifted photographers, who I highlight on this blog regularly. To Christine Mitchell and Deborah Ann Belka, two poets/bloggers I follow and admire: Thanks for your poetic expressions.

He has a great gift for finding insightful quotes. Those I’ve used in this post are from a recent newsletter . . . entitled “A Tribute to Artists”.
A phenomenal photographer whose work I love! I discovered him a few months ago; his ‘eye’ for nature, and spiritual images, is unique. By the way, he’s a Christian photographer.
