Inquiries Welcome: Laurie

Thanks for Supporting Daily Painters.

Mom is sleeping soundly so I have no TV on and no music on. I am so behind on painting it does no good to even think about it right now. Changes in our family are occurring faster than I can blink my eye. She had fever again yesterday so on Friday we return to the doctor. My youngest brother is out of town with his job and my oldest brother is facing a trip to Houston to attend the funeral of one of his oldest friends. Change is a constant. Did you get that message yesterday? Wanted to make sure you were reading.

This was one of the days I did not want to get up. I wanted to pull the blanket back over my shoulders and nestle down for two more hours of sleep, maybe three. But I knew if I didn't get up and work I might as well shut down the studio. I cannot hide from my work and the responsibilities I have in life despite this inner urge to run and hide from the change and the feeling of hopelessness that I cannot fix what is broken in the loved ones in my life.
Wait upon the Lord, the words fill my mind with song, Wait upon the Lord with Faith.

In your life you will find that inner strength, divine qualities, that allow you to move beyond challenges in your life. This is your faith. With faith you can grow and this faith will shape the good in your life and allow you to handle the complications that come along with your journey. This divine nature is inside all of us. It is time today to call upon what is deep with in. Allow the guiding spirit of God to light the way.

"But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which is alive today and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, how much more will he clothe you-you of little faith!"-Luke 12:28


“Can anyone hide in secret places so that I cannot see him?" declares the LORD. "Do not I fill heaven and earth?" declares the LORD.” Jeremiah 23:24
