Welcome to my new blog where you'll have a chance to see the best I have to offer from Doyle Arts including original paintings, quotes, haiku's, poems, and Doyle Arts news. Those of you familiar with my previous "Inspirations Newsletter" know that the old format was email only. Now you can not only receive the "Inspirations" blog via email, but you can also visit it at anytime in the future by simply saving it as a favorite on your computer. Also, anyone can now access it via the web, so it really broadens our audience. I appreciate you forwarding on the blog address to your friends and family.
Today's post is not only special because it's my first, it is also my opportunity to publicly thank a very dear friend who has been instrumental in helping me reach my dreams. In the face of some very difficult times, she has always been there for me, and for that I am eternally grateful. She is a "True Friend", and an inspiration to me. My art, and writings seem to be the only way I can thank her, but somehow in my heart I am certain she'd have it no other way. So for you my friend..."thank you"!
I gave of me, yet it wasn't returned
I offered my hand, to which it got burned
I sacrificed myself, but soon shunned aside
I offered my truths, to my face they all lied
I gifted my secrets, to others they'd tell
My heart's now a fortress, my surface a shell
Yet despite all the others, I'm blessed in the end
For God took my hand when He made you my friend
