MY CURATED VIDA COLLECTION

VIDA SHEER WRAP (EVERLASTING LOVE) VIDA MODEL.jpgHello, wearable art lovers! WOW, am I excited!!! VIDA and I have completed my curated VIDA collection! What this means is that since I have moved up from Slate status to Steel, I had the awesome privilege and pleasure of selecting one item from my collection to collaborate with them on to showcase a beautiful, lifestyle photography model wearing it.

The curated item that I selected is my “Everlasting Love” Sheer Wrap. The model attired in it (picture above in this post) is featured on:

  • my personal online curated collection page, and
  • VIDA’s main SHOP section page (just scroll down until you see this model wearing the wrap–underneath her picture, it will say EVERLASTING LOVE Sheer Wrap)

My inspiration for this piece was a big, beautiful, crystal clear, floating candle holder centerpiece at my brother and his wife’s wedding reception last year. You can view the full picture I took of it by clicking on the arrows (< or >) beside the wrap.

Thank you again so much to all of you who helped to make this accomplishment possible with your purchases from my collection!!! The third and final status is Gold, and I am already more than halfway there!!! ūüôā

Again, thank you all so much from the depths of my heart–from my heart ‚̧ to yours ‚̧ !

Maxine ūüôā

EVERLASTING LOVE–IS IT POSSIBLE?

LOVE EVERLASTINGI just finished my manuscript for my next book to be released, DESPERATE HEARTS, which is my sequel to ONE OF A KIND!¬† Even though I now have to start the editing process, I always feel a huge sense of accomplishment whenever I complete a manuscript.¬† And since DESPERATE HEARTS¬†is a sweet¬†yet dramatic love story, I felt compelled to write this blog about love.¬† As to its release date, I’m not sure yet, but hopefully sometime this year (preferably in October.)DH

Song of Solomon 8:6 says:¬†¬†“For love is as strong as death . . . the coals thereof are coals of fire, which hath a most vehement flame.”¬† (The Holy Bible in the KJV)

As most of you probably know, I love writing stories about relationships.¬† I also enjoy not only adding touches of humor to them, but I like to add a little romance as well.¬† God created humans with the capacity to express love.¬†¬†¬† However, in our imperfect human society, love is disintegrating.¬† Therefore, some may wonder, Is it gullible or na√Įve to think that enduring, mutual love can last forever?

OOAKTrue love between a man and a woman can be exceedingly strong, firm, and unyielding.  The Bible well demonstrates this in The Song of Solomon 1:1-14 and 8:14 where it tells of the unwavering love that existed between a shepherd boy and a country girl.  This song also reveals that despite all his splendor and riches, the king could not gain the love of that beautiful girl, for she was saving her heart and her love for her one and only true love.  She thus showed that genuine love cannot be bought with material things.

God purposed that love and marriage bring joy to humans, yet that does not mean that we will not experience adversities in association with the two.  But as long as we do things His way, our problems will be fewer.

Well, good night, and HAPPY READING.  And as always, this is from my heart to yours.

Maxine
