THREE TEXTS

I have created several new mandalas that have been posted on the Brightlight Mandalas site. This is the latest one. They are designed to be posters, but can be adapted to use for cards if you like. I am not giving them an image # because you can reference them by title. They can be paired with text that could be put on the inside of the card. I want to offer three new texts of my own creation as examples of what you can use.

God wants to reveal Himself to us
and does so
in the beauty of the flower,
the wonder of the night sky,
and the smile of a baby.

JUMPING CHOLLA MANDALA 1

This mandala is made with the flowers of the jumping cholla cactus. We have these growing in our front yard along the fence. They act as a deterrant to anyone trying to jump the fence, but I look forward to the beautiful blooms every spring. I have paired the mandala with this Washington Irving quote, but both could be matched with other images or text. Can be made into prints, posters, or cards.
