Contemporary ART Sail Boat Sunrise Oil Painting by Laurie Justus Pace and Morgan Pace

20 x 20 inches of unbelievable thick thick paint. I can say that because Morgan painted the basic painting last year and I saw it hanging there and decided it needed some contrast and began playing with it.

"He grew strong in his faith as he gave glory to God, being fully convinced that God was able to do what he had promised." Romans 4:20-21


Restoration is a major area of concern with older prized pieces of art. So many pieces are NOT in galleries or museums where they are cared for to help preserve their beauty.

Terry bought me a porch swing yesterday with a canopy. I have a wood swing out front where we sit and watch all the neighborhood kids play...but the porch swing is on the porch area between the studio and the kitchen. My easel pulls out there and it is the outside extension of my studio and a place I can RESTORE myself. I will take pictures later today as it was dark when we finished putting it together. He also bought blooming plants for me to enjoy and paint outside, setting me up with areas to renew my thoughts. COLOR!!! God's beauty.

How about you? What is being done to restore you? I am not talking about restoring the look and body of you at age 25....but you, the real you inside. There is within you the graciousness of good, love and joy. There is a pureness of your heart that only our Father can see. We all keep it hidden from others not wanting to hurt. We protect it from the elements outside.

There are many things I can write about that you can read and but not feel. Certain things seem to come with age and the major one I have noted is wisdom about who I am. The "I AM" that God made. The pure faith that there are times I have to let go of those squirrels running around in my head, let go of the "what ifs" and slip into His arms and know He can heal me. For those of you that do Yoga or meditate, it is close to that same feeling. If you are able to sit still and quiet your thoughts, be aware of slight quiet noises around you and begin to zone out and only hear and feel your breathing.

That is when you are able to hear Him. That is when He is restoring you.

Divine Love Heals All.


“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.” Romans 15:13
