"They met together to go and console and comfort him." Job 2:11

The Painting: This is all acrylic. I started with a charcoal sketch of the horses and then I began to see shadows and colors. Cross Hatching the palette knife gave it a woven feeling and that is where I saw the flowers...wild flowers.

The Thought: Almost late for the day for me...busy catching up on email...

Reflecting on the bible verse above... and tying it into the painting is always a start for me. Where do you go or what do you seek when you are sad or in need? Sometimes a good walk will clear your head enough that you can get your brain back in balance.

We all need comfort in our lives. It is this part of living that happens to all of us, the feeling let down by someone or something in your life... the feeling that you want to run away or hide under the covers. Perhaps that instinct is not bad, the under the covers instinct. This is the time to take an inward journey to the core of your being. That is were you will find God.
That is where you will be aware of His great compassion and love for you. God will strengthen you and reassure you as you become uplifted by communing with Him.

When you realize that this source is never ending, you begin to realize you can comfort others around you. God gives you the gift of compassion and empathy to speak to others in need. He will give you the words to comfort them.

I am lifting you up today in my prayers, that each of you will find comfort to fill whatever hurt is there.

I have a visitor today to the studio. My high school friend Barbara is in visiting from Salt Lake City. This will be the third summer she has come to paint with me. She has a natural way with the brush and I cannot wait to see what will become of today and her painting.


(He will find you ....)

Can anyone hide in secret places so that I cannot see him?" declares the LORD. "Do not I fill heaven and earth?" declares the LORD.” Jeremiah 23:34
