Contemporary Art Impressionistic Horse Painting by Laurie Justus Pace

The Owner of this painting lives in Virginia. She is preparing for downsizing in her life and contacted me that she wants to sell this original painting. It is 24 x 24 Oil on Canvas.

Please email her if you are interested in this painting. NIKI

This piece is soft impressionism and done with a wild brush and generous paint.

I am still not adjusted to Day Light Savings Time. Between those government people and the IRS I share no love. I cannot figure this out because 100 percent of the people I visit with do NOT want DLS anymore. AND they do not want the IRS. It should be abolished and we should all pay national sales tax on what we buy. That way those that buy are taxed. You might say the wealthy will buy outside the country, but remember there are import taxes on things brought back in through customs. There has to be a better way.

The next thing jumping around in my mind are the conversations that swirl around my head. EVERYONE and I mean almost everyone I know is out adding another gun to their collection and piling up ammunition. I know I live in Texas, but this definitely scares me. I do not understand the whys to this. My husband owns guns, but in the 20 years of our marriage I do not think they have been shot more than once or twice. I will eventually learn to shoot one, but I always wanted my own crossbow not my own gun. Maybe I will look into that!

The past few days I have been writing about our need to control in our lives. When I reflect on stories from the Bible I think of Jacob in the old testament. Jacob wanted to get ahead all his life and lied to his dad to do it and cheated his older brother. This dishonesty caused him to live in fear and dread meeting up with that brother later in life and that fear grew daily. When you have things like this floating around in your life you are robbing yourself of joy. You begin to obsess and they grow from small things into huge monsters. We all think we can take our life actions in our own hands, and when things do not work we begin to worry over the things we cannot fix. When we do this we are actually avoiding the love of God. We are choosing to do this, God is not cutting us off, we are ignoring him.

Be honest with yourself today. Recognize the good that is in your life right now. Give thanks for what you do have and do not worry about what you do not have. Power, success and happiness are things everyone tries to achieve. The greatest achievement is actually Peace, Love and Joy. Reset your priorities today. Let go of the past, face God and begin to live again.

Joy and Abundance are yours if you let go


“For this reason, since the day we heard about you, we have not stopped praying for you and asking God to fill you with the knowledge of his will through all spiritual wisdom and understanding.” Colossians: 1:9
