Love can rebuild the world, they say, so everything’s possible when it comes to love. Haruki Murakami

Love makes everything possible. Anthony Liccione

Many things are possible for the person who has hope. Even more is possible for the person who has faith. And still more is possible for the person who knows how to love. But everything is possible for the person who practices all three virtues. Brother Lawrence

With, and through love, anything is possible!

My belief is if one tries hard enough. Has belief in oneself. Anything is possible. I am fairly certain that before man actually stepped foot on the moon. Nobody even considered this was a possibility. I know before I sold my first painting. I had times when I thought this would never happen.

Like the scientists who designed and created the rocket that boosted the astronauts to the moon. I persevered till I sold my very first painting. Like the scientists who had many failures and succeeded. I had to work very hard at getting my paintings to the stage they were ready to sell. I had to get my website on to page one and row one for my keywords on Google. And so many more hurdles successfully leapt.

I never gave up. Though there were times I really felt like it. Exhaustion was at times a burden too heavy to carry. And, sometimes the bills just kept mounting up. But, the sheer exhilaration when one is sold. Is worth all the heartache! Is worth all the hard work and determination!

Anything in life is possible with the incredible power of love. I believe more than anything else that my ability to put a brush onto canvas is a true gift from God the Father. To put less than all my heart and soul into this endeavour would be an injustice to this amazing gift. So, this is what I do. I give all that is within me to all of my creations. Not only hoping for a buyer. But, also so to capture the essence of the beauty of Australian nature.

What is love? I do not believe I or anyone else can truly define love. I will try to put into words what love is for me. Love is the ability to put others first. Always put the needs of the other person before me. Easier said than done, I know. It is so easy to be a little selfish. It is easier, in the long run, to love first and not need to seek forgiveness.

Putting love into action by helping others through my stories. Is, I hope, another example of love. It is not easy trying to put the written words down. I can speak the write words easily enough, face to face. But, it is a different story just typing into a computer. I keep reminding myself there is indeed a reader on the other end.

Showing my gratitude to God the Father for the love He has bestowed on me. This story is written genuinely from my heart. The more love you give away. The more love you receive and then the more you have in your heart. Therefore, the more love you have to give to others. It is a free gift you can give to family, friends, neighbours and complete strangers.

Where there is love there is life. Mahatma Gandhi

Just in case you have forgotten today: You matter. You are loved. You are worthy. You are magical. Unknown

Here is an article on love.

Love is infinite, therefore anything is possible through love. I can and will use this incredible gift to help my readers.

Do you agree that anything is possible through the incredible power of love? Have you witnessed this power in your life? Can you think of ways that you can use this incredible and infinite power to comfort and help others?

Ways where this amazing power can strengthen bonds! Can ease times of isolation and loneliness! Where forgiveness can be granted to unite broken relationships.

There were times in my life when the impossible proved to be possible. I had been diagnosed with three types of cancer at once. To say I was devastated. Well, wouldn’t you have been? I had only two weeks previously buried my mother who had died from cancer. Now this, why me?

I begged God the Father for the strength and courage to get through this. It took over three years. Get through and survive I did. Times of not being able to get out of bed. Times of not being able to eat. Times of feeling so terribly alone. Survive I did. Now, I am a Professional Artist and a published author on

God is great! He answered my prayers for healing. Love’s incredible power to heal worked through the professional hands of my surgeon and the other members of my medical carers.

The simple beauty of every day demonstrates the incredible power of love. Just to hear the voice of my youngest son when he rings me, is proof to me of love without limits. Each day brings simple blessings of love. The pleasure of rain on my flowers. The rainbow shining, reminding me of God’s covenant.

Even when I am alone. That is, no other person around. I am not really alone. God the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit is ever-present. If I only open myself to Him. I can feel His presence. He never leaves me. I simply forget to pay attention.

The greatest treasure in your life is the power and simplicity of love. Whether you are alone or with your dearest family member. The trembling of your heartstrings reminds you of the power of love. It can cross oceans and the expanse of time. Love knows limits. Love shows no discrimination. True love holds no grudges. It is in your heart to give and receive. Absolutely free!

You can achieve anything your heart desires. Nothing is impossible with the incredible power of love.

Here is an inspirational story by a fellow author on

This story is quite humorous.

The miraculous power of love has many qualities. I have had it transform a quite ordinary day into a day of magic. Or a quite ordinary moment into a moment of sheer amazement. When God the Father placed me in exactly the right place at exactly the right time. On a cloudless and moonless night to be the witness of a bright shooting star. To say this changed an ordinary moment into a magical mystery. Yes, oh, yes!

Love is the alchemy in your life. You have had moments. When an ordinary moment is transmuted into magical. The very first moment you held your newborn child, perhaps? The dawning of a new day with an exceptional gently coloured sunrise. The power of love in these magical moments was not only miraculous but may also have been healing.

For me, the magic of a falling star one night healed my broken heart. No, I am not exaggerating. A beloved member of my family had again broken my heart. My heart was again shattered into a million pieces. I cried out to God the Father for His comfort. His peace and His solace. He gave me His shooting star.

You too have felt how the power of love heals. When a prayer was answered and your heartbreak turned to peace and gratitude. Scientists have been searching for the alchemy to turn base metals into gold for centuries. Love transforms your simple and basic day into one in which a miracle has occurred. You are left with a sense of wonder! A deep sense of gratitude!

The power, the incredible force of love is the most important asset in your life. Love flows out from within you. Shining onto others, showing who you truly are.

With the incredible and infinite power of love, you can achieve anything. A lonely day can be transmuted into a day of wonder! Simply by being the witness to a rainbow or a butterfly passing by in your garden.

I believe if one works hard enough, anything is possible. You can achieve your desires with the incredible power of love as your arsenal.

Love is free, infinite and available to everyone!

Love has many miraculous powers. Including the invaluable power to heal. Love has the power to bring peace and to unite a relationship through forgiveness.

Love flows from within you, shining onto others. Love shows who you really are.
