Egads, not sure why I am up this early, perhaps because I didn't sleep well last night. After the last Charlie Horse in my leg I decided it was not my time to be asleep. Terry and I walked the dogs for over an hour yesterday! Add in all my standing at the easel and you have the recipe for Charlie Horses. That's a pun of course with my horse art...just horsing around.

Today is filled beyond reason with everything I did not finish yesterday and I believe there is a chance we might see Jonathan our grandson today. On the agenda list, printing of posters, printing of 15 giclees, embellishing them, tubing them, boxing paintings for the The Red Tree Gallery and the Rain Bird Gallery, cleaning house for company tomorrow, grocery shopping and cleaning up the studio. Through in the window man coming to measure and give estimates on top of all of that. I had hoped Terry would do the boxing last night as I had all the paintings ready for spray and boxing. He did not. We walked the dogs and then he sat and enjoyed the TV and Computer for the next 4 1/2 hours. He did mention a few days ago the goals he had for the next two days, so I will wait and be patient. Personally I worked physically until nine thirty last night. Other than the trip to Church and the dog walk, I put in 14 hours.

Went to Church with my parents yesterday and gave much thought to the simplicity of the donkey as the animal Jesus chose to ride back to the city. Not exactly the beauty of the Arabian or the steadfast muscular stance of the quarter horse...just a donkey, a animal we connect with more negativity that positivity. The negative traits of the donkey seem to jump into your mind before the positive ones do. Stubborn, foolish and even those name calling words; But Christ chose a donkey to ride. In the Grand Canyon when you go on the tours, you ride donkeys. They are sure footed and dependable. They move at their own time and they have a secure ride to them. Sounds a bit like God. He is very sure footed and very dependable and most certainly moves at His own time. No wonder Jesus chose the donkey to ride into Jerusalem.

Grace to you this Holy Week.


"Rejoice greatly, O Daughter of Zion! Shout, Daughter of Jerusalem! See, your king comes to you, righteous and having salvation, gentle and riding on a donkey, on a colt, the foal of a donkey." Zechariah 9:9

"Say to the Daughter of Zion, 'See, your king comes to you, gentle and riding on a donkey, on a colt, the foal of a donkey.' " Matthew 21:5
