Hope In The Desert Print
When Kim and I started our business, we were optimistic. It didn’t take long for the optimism that launched our big dream to fade. For the first eight years, it felt like we were living in the desert. Any encouraging email from a reader, or an order on our store that didn’t come from someone we knew, were like drops of water on a parched tongue.
The dream never died, but we wondered at times if it was merely a mirage. Often, we’d lie awake in bed, wondering if we were officially crazy. We certainly felt like the whole process of scraping to pay bills while struggling to turn a profit was driving us mad. The truth is, a lot of our early dreams never came true.
But I stand before you today to let you know that Elizabeth Barrett Browning was right: God’s gifts do put man’s best dreams to shame.
Like an explorer marooned in a desert, life can be a struggle. Things can seem bleak, desolate, hopeless.
Maybe this feels a lot like you, right now.
During these times, a simple glass of water seems like a priceless treasure. But keep going. Have faith. Stay the course.
What you ultimately encounter may end up putting your original dreams to shame.
This colorful artwork by Jason Kotecki comes in a variety of sizes.
11"x14" Matted Print. Each museum quality print is made on thick, archival, acid-free matte paper. Finished with a white mat, it will easily fit into any standard 16"x20" frame. Printed in America.
11"x14" Framed Print. You can also let us take care of the framing for you! Choose a luxurious white or black natural wood frame that features a smooth finish over a stately and curvaceous crown profile. It includes a glass-like 1/16” thick clear acrylic glazing, which is shatter resistant and half the weight of glass, but gives the same clarity as glass and protects the artwork from fading.
