"You then, my child, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus." 2 Timothy 2:1

The Painting: This is a second painting I was working on when Barbie was visiting. I finished it up yesterday. It began with a bottom layout in acrylic for value placement. From this point there are layers of oils piled on top using a wide brush.

The Thought: Not sure of what it is, but I have been "down" for two days straight. Hopefully today will be better. Anytime I ate or drank water it felt like a tightening in my stomach, like an old fashioned tummy ache. Did not get to go visit our best friends in Mt Vernon I am a bit sad. Hopefully today I can eat again.

Terry continues to rip out the bathroom in our bedroom. The shower is completely torn out and tonight I think he intends to pull out the toilet and the rest of the floor. I suggested he stay on schedule because getting up at night makes it hard to remember to stumble down the hall to the other bathroom. He is actually working today. Normally he is off on Mon/Tues but there are impt meetings at the airport and so he works 7 days straight. It will be a long long week for sure.

The baby has begun to babble and giggle. Stacey phoned late yesterday afternoon to let us hear her laugh. She was watching the food network.

I have been studying in the bible where David is taking over from Saul. There are so many events happening around those two men, it is difficult to keep up with them both. There are many players on each side of the turnover of power, and there are many deaths.

In comparison our lives seem simple with out the physical battles of warfare surrounding us and the every day anxiety of survival. Each battle has a reason in our lives. If we didn't experience the battles, we would not be stronger. Out of each blooms a grace from Him. His good is there to pour out into your life.

There are times you cannot find goodness or grace in your life. That is when I would remind you to seek Psalm 20.

Psalm 20

For the director of music. A psalm of David.
1 May the LORD answer you when you are in distress;
may the name of the God of Jacob protect you.

2 May he send you help from the sanctuary
and grant you support from Zion.

3 May he remember all your sacrifices
and accept your burnt offerings.

4 May he give you the desire of your heart
and make all your plans succeed.

5 We will shout for joy when you are victorious
and will lift up our banners in the name of our God.
May the LORD grant all your requests.

6 Now I know that the LORD saves his anointed;
he answers him from his holy heaven
with the saving power of his right hand.

7 Some trust in chariots and some in horses,
but we trust in the name of the LORD our God.

8 They are brought to their knees and fall,
but we rise up and stand firm.

9 O LORD, save the king!
Answer us when we call!

Be assured that the grace of God is with you always.


"From the fullness of his grace we have all received one blessing after another." John 1:16
