“He who covers over an offense promotes love, but whoever repeats the matter separates close friends.” Proverbs 17:9

There is something comforting about seeing my husbands cowboy boots on the floor by his chair. Usually his socks are stuffed hanging out of the top of each boot. It tells me he is home and when he is home I feel his protection and love surrounding me tightly. I am no longer alone at home.... he is with me.

What is your comfort from the Lord? What do you have visually that reminds you He is home with you, both in your heart and your home; what do you see before you that He is filling your every need, loving you and protecting you? Is it your bible? Is it a cross hanging in a room? What visually reminds you of Him in your home?

For Terry and I it is our collection of different bibles in every room. We enjoy reading different versions and then of course cross referencing as we go. I just stopped and called him and asked him what visually triggers GOD's presence in our home... and he said the cross by the front door. We have a wonderful metal cross we were gifted from John at Patina in Marble Falls, one of my representing galleries. The second thing he mentioned is my painting below. It was done back in 1999 and I have never wanted to part with it. I sell prints and giclees of it on occasion. It is the descending dove in fire and water, the symbols of baptism. The verse is:

"I baptize you with water for repentance. But after me will come one who is more powerful than I, whose sandals I am not fit to carry. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and with fire."
Matthew 3:11

Then he said, "Our Home." This house is a home of healing and the presence of God is very strong with in its walls. It is undeniable when you walk through the door.

Praise Him.

As far as family catch up....

ART SHOW FROM 1 - 3 pm
I will be there along with many local artists celebrating the arts!

It was a good day yesterday. Stacey looks very "dropped" and ready to deliver. They are in waiting... God will start the show sometime... and we are all ready.

Terry bathed the dogs yesterday and today after work will do haircuts. I spent an hour scrubbing down the floors in the studio. I still have to clean off my desk and organize somethings...but that will be today AFTER I paint. The new series above is stretching my mind in different directions. Growth is important as an artist. Change is part of God's world. There is so much to see and do... and one lifetime hardly seems like enough.

Wishing you a joyful weekend.... and abundance for all.


"The second is this: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.' There is no commandment greater than these." Mark 12:31
