6 [Rather] is not this the fast that I have chosen: to loose the bonds of wickedness, to undo the bands of the yoke, to let the oppressed go free, and that you break every [enslaving] yoke?
7 Is it not to divide your bread with the hungry and bring the homeless poor into your house—when you see the naked, that you cover him, and that you hide not yourself from [the needs of] your own flesh and blood?
8 Then shall your light break forth like the morning, and your healing (your restoration and the power of a new life) shall spring forth speedily; your righteousness (your rightness, your justice, and your right relationship with God) shall go before you [conducting you to peace and prosperity], and the glory of the Lord shall be your rear guard.
9 Then you shall call, and the Lord will answer; you shall cry, and He will say, Here I am. If you take away from your midst yokes of oppression [wherever you find them], the finger pointed in scorn [toward the oppressed or the godly], and every form of false, harsh, unjust, and wicked speaking,
10 And if you pour out that with which you sustain your own life for the hungry and satisfy the need of the afflicted, then shall your light rise in darkness, and your obscurity and gloom become like the noonday.
11 And the Lord shall guide you continually and satisfy you in drought and in dry places and make strong your bones. And you shall be like a watered garden and like a spring of water whose waters fail not.
12 And your ancient ruins shall be rebuilt; you shall raise up the foundations of [buildings that have laid waste for] many generations; and you shall be called Repairer of the Breach, Restorer of Streets to Dwell In.
13 If you turn away your foot from [traveling unduly on] the Sabbath, from doing your own pleasure on My holy day, and call the Sabbath a [spiritual] delight, the holy day of the Lord honorable, and honor Him and it, not going your own way or seeking or finding your own pleasure or speaking with your own [idle] words,
14 Then will you delight yourself in the Lord, and I will make you to ride on the high places of the earth, and I will feed you with the heritage [promised for you] of Jacob your father; for the mouth of the Lord has spoken it. — Isaiah 58… for me
We can’t tell you much about Miroco Machiko apart from her being a very talented Japanese artist and illustrator. Nevertheless we just love her charming take on flora in these beautiful paintings. Her use of colour is just stunning and there’s even more delights on her website of a whole menagerie of whimsical animals to admire. Maybe she could design a range of prints based on these paintings, we’re sure they’d be snapped up.

i pray that your mouth stays shut
till the day you learn how to mean your words.
and that on that day, they’d spell
sincerity generosity faithfulness selflessness
to the one who taught me what love isn’t

Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you too can become really great. When you are seeking to bring big plans to fruition, it is important with whom you regularly associate with. Hang out with friends who are like-minded and who are also designing purpose-filled lives. Similarly be that kind of friend for your friends. — Mark Twain
