This morning is not a painting morning. I have to do house cleaning, bed sheet changing (Three beds) dusting, etc. At Noon it is hair time to make sure all is well for the weekend in Marble Falls.

The painting above was like something from a dream. The colors are very unique, the horse is there and yet not there... the colors of Nevada seem to thread through the painting. NOT the dry colors but the warm colors. Can you feel it?

I know I have shared many times I have rose glasses. That is the only way I can view the world and people, always seeking the best of what is there in both people and situations. Terry said he would engrave it on my tombstone..."She lived her whole life wearing her Rose Colored Glasses."
I often pride myself on this ability. BUT, pride goeth before the fall...

If you stay so focused on "the positive", you often miss important things. You need to view it all to create and carry through for your vision and plans for tomorrow. Sculptors start out with a large block of marble. From this point they begin cutting parts of it away before their vision really comes into focus and the marble emerges into that vision.

You must stay focused on the "entire block" of your life, discarding what you do not need as you live through each day. This is how you get to a better tomorrow.

Isn't that what our Father in Heaven does with us? He watches over us as we begin to emerge from our "BLOCK" into what he intends for us. Occasionally he has to step in and whack something off that we won't let go of, be it a bad habit or a situation we are not willing to face or deal with.


"But the plans of the LORD stand firm forever, the purposes of his heart through all generations." Psalms 33:11
