The Painting: I am trying something new on my blog posts. I will give instructions for awhile underneath the paintings. Click on the painting one time and allow a window to open. There will be a small image. Click on the small image and it will become large. This is where I will be able to show close ups of the paintings. Once sold I will delete the link to the close ups. So if you like the painting, click it, wait for the small image to appear and click it again. You will have to back track to read my thought for the day.

The Thought: Obsession with time. That is my huge issue these days. There are often not enough minutes in the day to complete my list. Yes, I made the list, God did not. It is "Laurie-made" not God made.

While Terry was on vacation this past week, we had several philosophical discussions. What would happen if I chunked it all and spent my day totally in the word and in prayer? How long before they seize our home? And then the bank starts garnishing Terry's paycheck to cover the college loan we are paying on for number two son....

Seems to be necessary to find that balance. I am obviously lacking in that area. Our world today seems obsessed with using days, saving minutes and stuffing more daylight hours in a day. We have all the time in the world but run around acting like there is not enough time. We must stop living on our time and start living on His time. God created time, He rules time and He transcends time. When you feel frustrated sit quietly and real Psalm 90.

To know the true value of time, you must have a true view of eternity.


"Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever You had formed the earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting, You are God." Psalm 90:2

Laurie, this is a great post. Painter's Keys newsletter today is about using every minute. I am just not that way and don't like to fret about passing time. It does pass. Your outlook is much more in line with the way we need to live.
