Throughout all my travels in this life, I seek to merge intrinsically with life to propel the unity of a higher conciousness toward all. Organizing Kaleidoscope Butterfly, Inc has been one way of doing this. We strive to create a pathway for sojourners to reach through the chaos of life and confussion of thought while being nurtured with truth, light and love. We desire to watch everyone emerge and take flight in a majestic display.

Watercolor: Broken?..Beyond Despair Artist: Candace Huffmaster Therefore we do not lose heart, but though our outer man is decaying, yet our inner man is being renewed day by day. 2 Corinthians 4:16 But as for me, my feet came close to stumbling; my steps had almost slipped Psalms 73:2 There are many times when those around us want to state that due to certain moments in our life we appear to be beyond repair. Thank God He not only has us in His clutch, but He continually matures us, stands by us, covers us, heals us, leads us and empowers us to keep going beyond the despair. Broken as we are, in Him we are transformed, as we renew our minds and believe by faith He is faithful to complete us.
Those who say such things make it clear that they are looking for their own country. If they had been thinking about the country that they had left, they could have found a way to go back. God created all things: He perceived, He conceived and believed; He established their goodness and set them in place. He opened up all time with opportunities: Made in His image: we create; we conceive, we perceive and believe.
Be appalled, even shudder But don’t worry, I’m here Don’t live your life fearful. Don’t lay down in defeat If you find yourself sinking…. Under pressure you deflate….. Speak my words of wisdom; Rise up on your feet!
A box no matter how magnificent is still a mere box. It is the heart given which creates the present.~ ch Having just come through the holidays, witnessing so many exchanges between individuals my mind opened wide to perceive a few things. Is it the quality of the content within the box which sets the value of wealth a recipient receives? We know the verses which state it is better to give than to receive. Yet as a society many times we are purchasing out of obligation and or for image reasons. We can spend a great deal of money “doing the right thing” and looking good doing it but that little bit of good fades – people forget how great the gift was. God tells us when we give love, charity, mercy, kindness, patience that not only are others blessed but we are blessed and He is given glory. Let’s not put these gifts in a box, let’s simply share them as they freely flow down from our heavenly Father. For when we do this each present moment will be more magnificent than the last. Think on these things if only for today - Kisses, Candace
Our travels move us through many moments, much information and even some truths. However, it takes much more than human intellect to unravel fact from fiction. Some people choose to align their thoughts with God's truth, it is from this perspective these words form. Ref: Proverbs 22:6 Teach children how they should live and they will remember it all their life. Mark 10:15 I promise you that you cannot get into God's kingdom, unless you accept it the way a child does."
As we know all things are common to man. That means anything that is happening to you is not out of the ordinary. So when we use the cliché “You have no idea” that is simply not true. Why then do some individuals enter into these so called “common moments” and end up in crisis while others do not?
The journey of life is not merely about desitination, althought we waste large fractions of emotion, energy to obtain a particular space or postion. This poem has been in transformation for years, and I believe as I travel the moments of my own life and am progressively being transformed by the renewing of MY mind this too shall evolve. But for now, this is the water I dive into. I encourage you to take a dip or a dive yourselves, then share of your experience.
At times we believe we see clearly, however without proper insight we are not able to discern gleaning accurate vision. Art forms allow us to take pause and meditate in order to pull away, to go deeper, get closer and find out what some of our beliefs truly are.
