The Painting: This was a special commission piece for a truly loved soccer player. This is the style painting that I really enjoy but these pieces take months to finish. Careful planning and layers of thinner paint build to the excitement on the canvas.

The Thought: Still on vacation but Terry is still working non stop on the bathroom tile. He has one more wall to go. So hopefully tomorrow the wall will be done and then he will tackle the floor.

It is a 'match' to the finish between him and the tile. Do you feel that way with life sometimes?
I had to remind our youngest daughter of that today. She allowed herself to get into an altercation with a younger child. She is 17. I explained gently that she was old enough to walk away. She is old enough to know what is worth battling over and their situation was not one of them. Younger children fight to the end of the battle every time. They have no knowledge skills to know the battle is hopeless and there are no winners.

I know life feels that way sometimes, but if you truly believe, you will always have hope in your heart. He has plans for you even when you feel totally dejected and rejected. He has something in store for you, but you have to do your part and believe.

There are no losers with Him.... only believers.

Are you ready for what He has for you?


But, "Let him who boasts boast in the Lord." For it is not the one who commends himself who is approved, but the one whom the Lord commends.” 2 Corinthians 10: 17-18
