Mothers Day Gift Guide - Jane Loedding Art

Earlier this month I came across a Truly Inspirational ArtistJane Loedding . I was so overjoyed when she agreed to sponsor a giveaway and product review of one of her art pieces. 

Summary: When I reviewed the websites it was so hard to choose just one print. They were all so inspirational and encouraging. Then I found one print that just hit home for me. It sent a shiver down my spine and I knew that it was the right print.

In my mind it represented change and moving forward. Things may be rough or not as beautiful in the moment, but eventually, you will come out of it bigger, beautiful and better than before. It was just a blessing to come across this painting.
When I received the package Jane had also include 2 prints, so I can now keep one at home and one at my desk at work. She also provided me with custom note cards as well.

Overall, I think that Jane is a wonderful talented and inspirational artist. She is able to tap in the emotion that comes with being a great artist and creates raw emotions in a person when you look at some of her pieces. I was extremely pleased with the art work that she provided for a product review and now I am looking at other pieces from her collection to add to my home to add more warmth and inspiration throughout the house.

Overall rating for Jane Loedding Art: 5 Stars

Inspirational Song of the Day: This is the day that the Lord has Made

This Is The Day lyrics by Fred Hammond

Just clap your hands like this
Just clap your hands like this

Yeah, let's wake up the church with this old school jam
Shout to the Lord in here
You know that He's good and His mercy endureth forever
And the people of God said, they said what

And the people of God said, yeah
And the people of God said, yeah
And the people of God said, yeah
And the people of God said, yeah

Now we serve notice to depression, confusion
All manner of evil and every sickness
You came in to bind but you cannot stay
'Cuz the people of God we ain't havin' it

It's a good day, even though I cried last Tuesday
And I was out of cash by Friday
No matter what comes next, I'm gonna stand up
And give him the praise 'cuz this is the day

This is the day, this is the day
That the Lord has made, that the Lord has made
I will rejoice, I will rejoice
And be glad in it, glad in it

Inspiration for the Day: Memories

Each of us have memories.
Good ones and sad ones.
 Unfortunately, our mind is mostly filled with the sad ones.
 It’s easier to keep sad memories because it comes with a scar.
 Good memories come with laughter and they all fade away.
 Every night, before we sleep, we have to remember all these sad memories because before we sleep, we think about people we care about and miss, but we lost the chance of holding again.
Nobody really wants to forget these memories, but nobody wants to remember them either.
