A Time For Renewal...

Whether you are religious or not , you must admit that it seems this world is in dire need of renewal.
Bare with me as I do a non-design rant today.  
If you are Christian and celebrate Easter it  represents a second chance, a time to change since you believe Christ gave himself up so we may have peace in heaven.  For Passover one may celebrate the mass Exodus of Israelites from Egypt and once again a chance to start a new.  Even if you do not believe in a higher being you must crave a sense of peace and hope, right?  I think it's time to reflect and take note of the true beauty in this world. As parents I think we need to put our phones down and talk to our children and really get to know them and the pressure that today's society puts on them.  I think it's really time to stop and smell the roses, open the windows and let the air in, show gratitude and good manners. A simple thank you goes a long way. All of these little steps can bring a sense of renewal and a hope. It's Spring and life starts again let's really treasure it.
Have a wonderful weekend and whatever you choose to do please take a little time to look around and find peace and love.
Don't worry I will be back to the world of design come Monday!

  10. É Páscoa! Cristo está vivo, o túmulo está vazio, Ele ressuscitou!!! A mais bela festa dos Cristãos.
    Crentes no Amor de Deus Pai que nos deu seu Filho Jesus Cristo que permanece conosco pela força do
    Espírito Santos, seguimos nossa caminhada na construção de um mundo mais justo, fraterno, humano,
    harmonioso e de doação.
