Horse Oil Painting By Laurie Justus Pace
18 x 18 inches of abstract colors and a dashing horse!
The sun is up and the birds are in full chorus outside...it is a wonderful day. This is the day that the Lord hath made. Let us rejoice and be glad in it!

Exploring in life is always a must. God is really good about closing doors. We must use our wisdom gained through our life experiences to be wise and find an open window. Yesterday morning I went to my parents house and fixed breakfast. It was a treasured time to share a meal with them. God is good! After eating mom sent dad into shower and we sat and visited. She has been seeking direction on several issues in her life that involved changes. Major changes. She sat back and said, "I guess I will wait until God knocks me upside the head." I sat forward and yelped "NO". I have been knocked upside the head several times and have watched it happen to those close to me. That is not a good thing to wait for in my opinion. I really don't think God likes to "knock us upside the head" and I think he would prefer us to be quiet within and listen to the wisdom he provides. It is hard to make decisions in your life that affect your entire earthly being, the way life has been for almost 60 plus years.
Nothing in life is constant but change. You can only count on change, not on better or worse, but change. Allowing God to knock you upside the head because you do not want to make decisions is really leaving yourself wide open for many painful things. My dad was always the best on Making Lists. "Make a list" is a major part of my life when making decisions. Pros and cons. This is a tool he provided for me that even my mother reminded me of last year as we made the decision to move back to the city. The wisdom of the Father....from the Father.
"Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will direct your paths." Proverbs 3:5-6
