Morning in Sangre De Cristo
Abstract Horse Painting by Laurie Justus Pace
24 x 36 Oil on Canvas
Contact me for Commission Work.

Good morning from Woodbridge VA. I have arrived with Terry and my mom at Mama Nik's house. We flew into Dulles arrived around nine thirty. Got to Niki's about ten thirty. Stacey will be posting my photos during most of the trip. So if you are tuning in for pictures, tune in later today. She said she would try and post before she left for work, but with her being pregnant, sometimes she sleeps in!

We leave to drive from here up to upper state New York where we will be staying in the care of Billie Bauman the Gallery owner of Earth Works Art Gallery. We will be guesting in a lovely home on the Bluff of Lake Keuka. THERE IS NO INTERNET WHERE WE ARE GOING!

I will take pictures. Today I have to stop somewhere and buy the card reader I left at home. We left in a haste trying to make the plane we caught. We travel on passes with American and it was difficult to find somewhere to fly into.... Dulles opened up and we fly first class all the way!

More later and I hope Stacey ads the picture and a thought for you too. I am on Niki's computer as we are in a hurry to get on the road. We have a good nine hour drive ahead of us.

From the heart of Daily Word today and my lack of reflection time to share:

Daily Word — Friday, August 15, 2008


I experience the joy of Spirit that overcomes any circumstance.

There is a tremendous difference between feeling contented and knowing pure joy. I am content when everything is going reasonably well. My exuberant joy, however, surpasses any feeling of contentment.

Joy is within me no matter what circumstance life may bring my way. Knowing that conditions can change in an instant, I find joy in knowing that life is eternal.

I derive joy from daily times in the silence, during which I more fully realize my oneness with God. I discover joy in the beauty God has created around me: the rain's gentle patter, the sun's warmth and light, a flower's aroma, a child's unbridled laughter.

God's spirit is within me, within all people, and within every situation. This understanding fills me with joy no matter where I am or what I may be experiencing in the moment.


"Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth."--Psalm 100:1
