Horse Oil Painting by Laurie Justus Pace

15 x 30 inches Gallery Wrap Canvas


Friday has not dawned by sun time but it has by the clock. I worked until after nine last night painting and will be jumping back in front of the easel in a few moments. I noted it is difficult to ever catch up or get ahead. Strange that I chose to post this painting today...traveling to greener grass....chasing the elusive and missing what is right there in front of you.

Living in the moment is the key here. There is no catching up or getting ahead with God. That was part of my thought process this morning around one as the phone rang waking us up. As we settled back down to try to sleep again I realized this moment is the most important moment. It could be the beginning moment, the middle moment or an ending moment....but it is the moment of truth of being and being with the Lord in your heart and soul is the ultimate. In my heart as I laid there listening to the quiet of the night I felt a peace knowing Terry and I were safe in His care at that moment. Terry is there for me, and I for him, and together with God we make our time in a gentle peace enjoying the bounty we have in our love for Him and for each other. That is what is important to me in this moment.


“There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love.” 1 John 4:18
