I am here, barely. Short blog as it may be. I painted this painting last week. As you can imagine I have not painted in three days. I got up this morning, have not showered yet, feeling rather weak. The house is filthy since I have not been up to keep up the sweeping to keep the dust down. There is still a huge trench in the yard for the repaired gas line and the dogs bring in that soil. It tends to spread as we go in and out of that back room where I paint. I have literally lived in our bedroom for the past three days with the crockpot steaming peppermint into the air and my mom dropped off a cool mist humidifier. My coughing is much better. Last night I had sweet potatoes for dinner. I have lost six pounds, but not sure I like to lose it this way. I never drink juices, I eat the real fruit, but I had Morgan pick up some real OJ Not concentrate...with pulp and I have sipped on about 8-12 oz each day along with at least 100 ounces of water. Also use oils for colds rubbed on my chest and wrists...altho I do not have a cold it seems to help the congestion in the chest.

The journey is here and as frustrated as I am about not painting, there is nothing I can do but lay back and allow my body to heal. We still do not have heat after 8 days now. I am going to find a filtering system for that room today on line and order it. We have an air cleaning filter and I have it in our room right now. I have everything going in our room. I hope the fuses hold together. I watched THREE episodes of Little House on the Prairie this morning.

Stay warm, stay well and check on those you love in case they need help. Speaking from experience these days are long and lonely when you are ill and no one is near by to even get things you need.

Thank you to the many that have written me and shared their concern. I especially enjoyed the photographer from Croatia, Lidija. Her emails have really lifted my spirits! click here for her website. Also from another painter, Austin and his site is available if you click here.
The prayers of everyone are treasured and have lifted me up to the Lord for healing. Thank you!

Grace,
Laurie

and the verse from Lidija that she sent to me:

Psa 1
Blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked or stand in the way of sinners or sit in the seat of mockers But his delight is in the law of the LORD, and on his law he meditates day and night. He is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither. Whatever he does prospers. Not so the wicked! They are like chaff that the wind blows away.Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the assembly of the righteous. For the LORD watches over the way of the righteous, but the way of the wicked will perish.
