Unconditional Love ~ A Song For The Heartist In Us All

Click here to listen to Unconditional Love by Talesha Hogan

When we stumble, we often don’t stand … Others stumble, we often stand by.  We are so innocent … falling off our feet in the dust.  We mistake the dirt and dust for who we are.
I invite you on a journey of stumbling, wobbling and standing with renewed faith. ‘Unconditional Love’ is an Epic and Interactive Musical of Life, Spirit, and Embracing that Spark within us that God never loses faith for.  ‘Unconditional Love’ is a revelry, inciting that spark in becoming a blooming bonfire!

Penned and shaped from a life of challenging experiences and triumphant breakthroughs lined with faith. Talesha urges our hearts to grasp that Love inside us with both hands.

Well I’ve tried to measure up, I’ve stood on tiptoe
Hoping somehow maybe I would grow
And I haven’t given up on happy endings
But I realize now, we’re all just human
Cause I’ve made mistakes and I’ve shared heartaches
Even hiding the Sun finds my face


What is this Love? What is this Love?
The only kind I’m looking for, sacred and secure!
What is this love? What is this love?
The kind my heart won’t break to endure …
It’s Unconditional Love ~

Verse 2:

Well I’ve worn some other shoes that didn’t fit me
Thinking I could not relate, here in my barefeet
And I’ve painted on a smile, when mine was fading
There were places in my life, I felt like trading
Cause I’ve made mistakes and I’ve shared heartaches
Even hiding the Sun finds my face


unconditional loveLove is where you stand when all you’ve lost is close at hand
Love is what you choose when all that’s left to give is you
And I say play your part, lose your heart or you will never know
All that’s hear that wasn’t clear is now an open road
It’s indescribable, it’s unexplainable .. It’s Unconditional Love.

My First Commissioned Masterpiece Motherhood Is An Art

In art, a commission is the hiring and compensation for the creation of an art piece, often on behalf of another.

So much of my heartistry has been inspired by my very first commissioned art pieces, my daughters .. Devin, Taylor, Kirstin and Mikalah. From the moment of their immanent existence, I felt the urgency of creating consciously .. the knowing that a lullaby sung, a stroke of paint or molding of my hands on their ‘being ..’ would inevitably shape their be-ings, their hearts, their minds.  Whether a simple shaky squiggle or an inticate brush stroke .. my mark would be on their canvas of life and carried with them into their own gallery ~ forever .. for them to refine, create and frame at their choosing.

mikalah love handsAs with any artistic rendering, I didn’t always create perfectly (in everyone’s eyes) but my art on those four canvases is no less beautiful and no less valuable in my eyes.  They are and always will be my greatest masterpieces .. commissioned by God and created with every exquisite color I had in my own pallet, with the very best of my minimal expertise.  We all set out to do the very best we can. I believe that none of us would say .. we set out to do our worst.  While I can’t say I had all the ‘right’ techniques down, I can say, I created with my whole heart and I created with every ounce of unfurled faith I could muster.

Now as for that commission .. there can be no greater reward than seeing your art, take on a life of it’s own and knowing that you had a hand in it!  I’m blessed with the knowing that my brush is an extention of a much greater creator, the divine artist’s loving hand .. who I very much long to run to with my renditions, in hopes of a prized spot on that heavenly refrigerator .. and then I remember, even I am a part of His masterpiece and we are all in the showing, consciously creating, or not.
