"Jesus answered, "If I want him to remain alive until I return, what is that to you? You must follow me." John 21:22

A Painting a Day: This composition was painted for my summer show in July in Hong Kong at the SR Gallery. Feeling alive and fresh and energizing was important to the final painting. Using contrasting colors for conflict and energy creates a feeling of need to climb into piece and reach out to touch the flowers. Using a wide brush with double loads of paint allows me to obtain a layered blend of colors.

My Thought for the Day:

So as far as you have come in this journey called "Life", have you been truly alive?

We all seem to plan every day and sometimes a week or more before for things to happen on schedule. I believe it gives us a sense of control, but do we really have control? I know I do not. I spend time on schedules and lists, and planning things out. I am loosing quality life time. Who am I living this life for? It is not like I have an audience and this is a performance and each time I can do it better; it is the real thing and every day only comes one time.

In prayer during stressful times you can hear the echo, "God where are you?". What you should be praying is "God, where am I?" Check your schedule, it might tell you... well it should, right?

If you are living and allowing Him to lead you you will be moving through life with His guidance and His blessing. We are all rather hardheaded and we always like to do it our way, so you can be sure I will not be far behind you... I am still learning to live with Him on His terms. Hopefully we will both catch up in the same place at the same time.


"The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged" Deuteronomy 31:6
