True Grit
Horse Oil Painting By Laurie Justus Pace

24 x 18 x 2 inches

Inquiries: Laurie

Tuesday dawns with over 25 triple digit heat days in Dallas. Can I say HOT???

I am taking the day off today so no painting. I will turn energies toward grocery shopping, getting mom's passport updated and general wash etc.

Sometimes sorrow creeps into our lives. Painful events, deaths, dark moments etc. Last night Morgan arrived home to find his apartment broken into. I am thankful he was not there. They didn't clean him out, and I am thankful for that. They took some key very expensive things and somethings that cannot be replaced. Not just physically things but the emotional security of feeling safe and not violated. His Mac Laptop is gone along with the book he was writing. I only have through page 26 so there are 50 pages missing.

Often when we are so distressed we don't even know what we should pray for, or how we should pray. That is when I believe the Holy Spirit within takes over for me, when I cannot expresses the deep grief in my soul. I know though, despite my babbles, God knows what is in our hearts and the spirit with in pleads for us.

Words may stick in your throat and tears sting your eyes and nothing is unnoticed by God. He feels the pain you are in and he catches your tears in His love. The Holy Spirit is comforting you always as God is working.

I leave you to thought of who you need to pray for today, for those that cannot pray they are in so much hurt and pain.


"And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them." Romans 8:28
