This is a second in the series I did on Pop Art. Decided to continue posting a few of these pieces. It is another facet of my artwork!

Sunday is here and I am planning out my day. I was up awake with a headache at 3:30 this morning and spent the next hour and a half with squirrels running circles in my head! When you lay awake with your head pounding it is hard to go back to sleep and so darn inviting to solve the problems of the world. Was there a news flash about that yet? I spent time on every bothersome thing that popped in my mind and somehow with all that energy I HAD to solve something....but I do not think I did.

Worry was there on the parental front, the sibling front, the children front, the job front etc. Niki wrote on a reference for me that I have Time Management issues. Yeah, I need sleep. Time Management is a specialty for me. I am never late to work even here in my studio, paintings go out on time even if it takes me 25 hours in the 24 hour day; children get saved before they sink; food is always on the table; the house is always clean, my work is always done before I even take time to have bathroom break. I have time management issues to the fault of my health, but never the job. I do not think the school district I applied with will read it that way though, Time Management issues will be a red flag for NOT getting a teaching position. I had decided for retirement I needed to return to the classroom and get 10 more years of teaching in. It won't happen this year with this district once they flag my application with the red circle sticker...Time Management Issues.

With visions of RED CIRCLE stickers swirling in my mind, nothing was solved or resolved in my hours of debate this morning. Sibling rivalry continues with in my group of siblings; my children continue to encounter their bumps in the journey; money continues to be the root of all evil; possessions still clutter our lives; there are never enough hours in the day (Back to time management again): and in case anyone cares, I truly dislike Day Light Savings Time. If God wanted us to have more light at night He would have set the world up to provide it. Why does man continue to try and control and manipulate his world?

What I did resolve this morning was to know I have limited power and the rest is up to the Lord. My focus should be in prayer and listening for Him to lead the way. I think he can resolve all of the above except the Day Light Savings issue. Obviously He hasn't taken on our Congress yet, or the IRS.

At this moment take all the worries that are cluttering your life and give them to Him for the day. Promise yourself NOT to return to worry just today. Spend the day instead every time your brain wants to let in thoughts of problems to stop and tell yourself, "this is the Day that the Lord hath made for me, and all problems are taken care of by Him. I release my worry and control."


"If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? So do not worry, saying, 'What shall we eat?' or 'What shall we drink?' or 'What shall we wear?' For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them." Matthew 6:30-32

You're such a versatile artist, Laurie!

What's your methodology with pop art: how do you go about it?
