SUNRISE OVER __________
Contemporary Art Horse Palette Knife Daily Painting by Laurie Justus Pace

18 x 24 inches of THICK gorgeous color!
This is SOLD. That is why I cannot complete the title above. It is a Christmas gift for one of my readers and they do not know about it. I love it. This is the best time of the year for me. SURPRISE SURPRISE TO ONE OF YOU!

WRITE ME when you open your package Christmas morning.

Yesterday we woke to the sleet/snow and by mid morning we were back out heading for Fed-ex. We have one more Fed Ex trip tomorrow and I pray the packages make it on time! I sent a huge one off to Italy yesterday, and one to Santa Fe NM. Still need to send one up to the east coast and one to Georgia.... Sorry I can't divulge more on the painting above... I am way excited on this one. There are actually several kind spouses that ordered work for their husband/wife. It is thrilling to be part of this! I want shared pictures for sure.

Jumping off into the thought scrambling in my head and I am NOT sure where it is going, I will ask simply, "What lies ahead?" Is the thought referring to the new year or to what God has ahead for us, or maybe both? It is in my mind stretching around right now getting a grasp on direction with this thought. Yes Kathy, I am late in posting!

Do you give space in your life to God? If you do not, you will often find Him making space for Himself in your life. I do not want to suggest this to be a happy or sad experience because He uses what He must to get our attention. Unfortunately for most of us, we have to experience something several times before we learn what we are to learn from it. No different than a child in school being taught vocabulary words. The average child has to use it, see, and write it at least 8-10 times before the words becomes theirs. I am definitely on board to say I do NOT want to be taught the same life lesson 8-10 times before I "get it". Although I do have some family members that never seem to get it. In the past I worried for them constantly appealing to God, but recently I realize I had to let go and let God work on them. God knows my heart. I have enough in my own life I need to work on.

God has called each of us to do things in our life time. There are challenges that accompany this work, often times making it difficult to be faithful to fulfill what He wants us to do. I would hazard a guess to think we are our own roadblocks 95% of the time. We simple to do not give Him space to work in our lives.

In this Christmas season, be refreshed and restored in Him. Give Him space in your life. Take time right now and visit with Him. There is something He needs you to do today. What lies ahead in your day? Elizabeth and Mary were both surprised with some changes in their lives. And those changes affected the world forever. God has something for you too. Open your heart and make a difference in what lies ahead.

Here are the photos I took of our snow on the road yesterday!

Joy and Abundance are yours, lift up your heart to Him and receive what He has to give.


“But after he had considered this, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said, "Joseph son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary home as your wife, because what is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit. She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins.” Matthew 1:20-21
