I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me. (Galatians 2:20)

It is cold cold cold outside and there is a thick, inches thick, layer of ice on top of everything. Terry left for the airport at 5 am and it is 6: 15 as I am typing and he still has not phoned to say he has arrived. It is normally a 25 min drive....All the schools are closed today, but by 11 this morning temps will be up over freezing and life will return to normal. In our circle drive out front there is a huge 50 ft magnolia tree. Magnolia trees have all their leaves right now and a lower branch was so heavy with ice is was on top of Terry's truck. I do not think he will park under it tonight.

SO in thoughts of WARM, I posted RED HOT this morning. She is strong and full of energy! PAINTING is on the agenda today... I have a commission of four paintings, 24 x 36 which will be hung together. We have decided to use the commonality of family in the thoughts of the painting and she wants horses of course... final sketches today and I will begin painting.

Are you living your destiny? Are you there yet? Many of us keep prodding along waiting to get there. Where is there? Why does it take growing older to get a bit wiser? Why can't some of this dawn on us at an earlier age?

We visit about having Jesus in our hearts and following God's directions to live. We read in our bible and we pray daily. With Jesus in your heart, is He only three inches tall? Is He a "good luck" charm that if you "believe" you are protected from the bad stuff? Is He someone you turn to only when things are going wrong? Do you pray once a day like taking a vitamin to keep you healthy and wise? Is this what you are teaching your own children?

Actually living in Christ will transform you into a new person. It will change the concept of who you are and His personality will mix into yours and you will become "new". New behaviors, new attitudes, new likes and dislikes...all new as you are walking in His love. The change starts in your heart as you realize you must depend on God to help you make those changes to be more like Him.

"And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God." Romans 12:2

Believe in the good (GOD) inside of you...let it shine out to others.

Joy and Abundance... Terry just arrived at the airport at 6:40.


"I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; I will take the heart of stone out of your flesh and give you a heart of flesh. I will put My Spirit within you and cause you to walk in My statutes, and you will keep My judgments and do them." Ezekiel 36:26-27

Good Morning! Your art, faith, and story are truly inspirational! My verse is, "Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the LORD rises upon you." (Is 60) This verse is so evident in your work also. God keeps blessing you and others through you!
