The Painting: Another piece from the workshop tape I have been watching. Using negative space to carve out positive pieces....fun to work with color and thick oil paint.

The Thought: Not any painting right now as I am busy with school registration and unpacking and settling in. Terry continues the work on the bathroom...slow but sure...very steady and with out complaint. The best part of our vacation is the sleep. I have found I can actually sleep more than five hours in a row. We slept in yesterday morning until 8:30 am. ANYONE that knows me knows I am a five a.m. riser. I told Terry I could get use to the 8-9 hours a night of sleep.

God intends for us to be rested. I am the world's worst of always working, getting things done and forgetting about myself and my body's needs. When I do this I am not respecting my body and its needs. Healthy eating, healthy exercise and a full night of rest. How many of you actually get this? I do not. I am guilty of mistreating myself.

Think about yourself this morning. Are you taking care of the body the Lord gifted you with? Are you overweight? Are you exercising? Are you sleeping at night? Now figure out how you can adjust the things you need to in order to get your body back to balance.

Be kind to yourself. The Psalm I enclosed at the end is a favorite. From me to you...

Laurie

By day the LORD directs his love, at night his song is with me— a prayer to the God of my life.” Psalm 42:8
