It is early Sunday. Mom is sleeping gently in the other room and I will tiptoe to paint this morning, no music, no news, just me and the colors pushing on canvas. Sometimes I enjoy quiet paints!

I worry about the phones though. Brothers all started calling at seven thirty yesterday and my phones going off in succession is enough to wake anyone. I am reloading my book cover for the new book for hopefully the last time. I used EXACTLY the same cover we used for printing last time and it rejected it...go figure.

Well, the words rejected it but I think they used it anyway. I have redone it again for the 8th time and am reloading it. Do you think God gets tired of reloading us? We all seem to have trouble seeing the real world we live in. Last night we watched "THE BUCKET LIST". Mom chuckled as we did through several scenes, but the ones that pulled your heart were deep. Have you experienced JOY? Do you share JOY? These two men that are terminally diagnosis with cancer flee the hospital together to complete that last list of things to do. I do not want to give out the ending so I can't make a full point other than to suggest you watch it. During the film for only a few seconds I saw pure JOY. That small segment placed the entire movie. I am sure that small segment of joy would vary with the watcher, yet I know the writer made his mark on my heart and although I cannot describe it, I could feel that moment of JOY and it remains with me this morning as something to be open to, because it is right here, right now.


“The LORD will keep you from all harm— he will watch over your life; the LORD will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore.” Psalm 121:7-8
