Sunday Sketches - Soar



"Refuse to be average,
let your heart soar as high as it will"
A.W. Tozer

It's time for Sunday Sketches!
"Soar"  was inspired by a poster I saw earlier this week made up of 3 simple words....
RISE ABOVE IT
This is the first image that came to mind when I got home and started thinking about those three words.
If we want to achieve happiness and contentment and live well,
We must rise above adversity, anger, jealousy and unhappiness....
and spread our wings, fly and soar
for ...
"the higher we soar, the smaller we appear to those that cannot fly"
so, I am off to do just that....
care to join me?


PS a HUGE congratulations to our host Sophia over at Sunday Sketches!
Sunday Sketches turns 2 today!
Happy Birthday!
  Come join the fun, say hi, and sketch away with us!

thanks for this image - I think I will need to come back and look at it much in the coming weeks! What a great portrayal of 'soaring', especially when there's too much n your plate and life moves too fast... etc etc...
