May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope. Romans 15: 13

A Painting A Day: Contemporary horses created with layers of palette knife paint, oils and impasto are apart of this painting. This was a commission piece for a very special doctors office opening here in Dallas. Color and energy are all apart of the healing process...waking the body to the "good news" of life through empathetic viewing, as energy passes from the canvas to the viewer.

My thoughts for the day:

The last time I was really sick was about a year ago in February when I had the flu and we had no heat, no hot water, and partial electricity. Go back and read my blogs from then. It was not a pretty thing. Terry would trot off to work as I laid in bed sick, with a space heater in my one little room. I was too sick to even get up to get myself water or food. He would literally leave me with a pitcher next to the bed. I was lacking hope at that time. Seems like when you are sick, that is one of the hardest times to have hope.

What is hope? Hope is defined as the ability to look forward with confidence or expectation.

Everyone needs hope in their life. Every day there are times we feel so hopeless that we cannot react to do anything. Despair begins to creep in. We begin to loose hope. In these economic times many of our friends have lost hope. Our days seem to be filled with hurts, problems, sicknesses, troubles, financial issues, world issues, political issues, bankruptcy etc. Can you rise above it?

Hope is real, and it is something we can give to another person. When you see someone in need suffering from hopelessness, it is time to share the greatness of God and the hope that Jesus offers to all of us. Hope is not something you can see or hear, but you can definitely feel it. Trust in Him. You will face disappointments many times in your life, but He will never disappoint you if you give Him the time to work in His way.

Remember as you pray today, "... those who wait on the LORD will find new strength. They will fly high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint." Isaiah 40:31

Share a bit of "hope" with someone today....


"Show me the path where I should walk, O LORD; point out the right road for me to follow. Lead me by your truth and teach me, for you are the God who saves me. All day long I put my hope in you." Psalm 25: 4,5
