The Painting:  I am currently painting new pieces for the Jackson Hole Gallery.  Hollee Armstrong, the owner, wanted another large pull of horses so I did this striking piece that is busy curing and waiting to be shipped.   I have a music piece I am working on as well and one other composition of my new water pulls.
The Thought:  Well yesterday I spoke of spiritual freedom.  I began my day with great expectations of nothing but tuned to staying tuned with Him.  I actually made it until late morning when of course things begin to overwhelm and I was sucked right back into the vat of mess between scheduling appts and securing addresses and counting out postcards.
Even last night with ALL good intentions of heading to the shower by nine didn't occur.  I returned a phone call to a fellow artist and a storm hit outside. I was rushing around the studio to pull blinds down so my oldest dog would not have a heart attack and I knocked over a huge gallon container of white paint I was using and I had not taken the extra time to secure the lid.  When  gallon container goes, it dumps quickly.  Not only was that a huge expensive loss, it was a mess. Terry was a huge help as we cleaned the floor area.  Took about 30 min though and by the time that was done, I had sheets still to go back on beds and meds to pull and a shower to take. It was close to 10:30 when I climbed between the sheets.  We were back up at 4:45 this morning to start the process all over again.

I made this list with 12 things on it that I made yesterday.   I only crossed two things off.  I am moaning.  Does that mean double time today?  I think I have to give it back to God and trust that He will guide me through this day to accomplish what I am suppose to do this day.

Yesterday I did teach our new daughter how to play the guitar.  She caught on fast.  Within minutes she hungrily grasp 8 chords and was playing away. Her request was to play LUCY IN DISGUISE WITH DIAMONDS... the chorus at least.   Of course we did not learn that, but we did DESMONDE by the Beatles and JOHNNY BE GOOD.   I am impressed by her musical ability.  We will continue with guitar and head on to piano next.

May your list today be less than ten... and may you be strong of heart and filled with trust to allow Him to guide your day.

What you heard from me, keep as the pattern of sound teaching, with faith and love in Christ Jesus. Guard the good deposit that was entrusted to you—guard it with the help of the Holy Spirit who lives in us.”- 2 Timothy 1:13-14
