Flower Oil Painting by Laurie Justus Pace

18 x 18 inches


Morning has broken and I am cleaning the studio. Terry is still asleep and the dogs are under foot at the moment. I put off my morning shower to finish doing the dirt in here. I just found my favorite exercise dvd, DANCE OFF the Inches with Juliane Arney. It is pretty good! I will be cranking it now that I found it.

Want to figure out how to get my drying rack in here. I want to sell my large drafting board to make room for it. Terry did not want to do that when we moved here, but it has become a catch all for everything. It is not a place I can work. If he can get it fixed (The drawer is broken) I can set my watercolors up on the table and use it, but right now I do not like it in here. No catch alls are needed.

I was glancing at daily word this morning before rolling out of bed. Sometimes I refer to the thoughts from there in my blog. I think I have to this morning. It touches on miracles, faith and peace. They make reference to a scripture verse in the Chapel at Unity Village that says "Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen." Not sure where that verse is in the bible. I used my verse look up for key words and did not pull anything up in the first two tries, but I will continue. In my reading I enjoy cross referencing because I learn so much more.

How do you connect faith, prayer, miracles and peace? I find the thought of all of this rolled into such simplicity quite powerful. When going to prayer you are acting in faith; in your prayer you pray in that faith believing miracles happen through out the day and all around you. The peace is always yours if you have faith. This faith and peace surpasses pain, discomfort, sadness and all negativity in your life. Hold your hands up to the Lord, close your eyes and feel the peace that envelopes your body as you breathe.


“And to the centurion Jesus said, ‘Go; let it be done for you according to your faith.’ And the servant was healed in that hour.”—Matthew 8:13
