The Painting:  This is a painting rich in life and color. It is painted for a college student and preplanned by the mom to surprise her with it when she comes home.  I think it might be birthday/Christmas.

She liked the Autism donation painting so the horse is very similar to that painting from earlier in the summer.

The Thought:  This is from my laptop in bed.  I am totally not sure what is wrong, but lots of chills and fever.  Tylenol is my friend right now.  My body aches; some muscles are sore and I think they are sore from shaking with the chills late yesterday.

Forgetfulness is where I am heading today. Our daughter managed on Friday to admit five minutes before we were leaving to drive her to school that she forgot to make a poster board assignment.  My question was 'Which is more impt the assignment or not being tardy?'   She chose to be tardy and jumped in to get off the internet the info she needed for the poster.   She appeared home with it after school still working on it.

She of course had a hundred and one reasons why she forgot it.  She had told her Dad the day before she had to do it, but it would not take long.  She promptly forgot it totally.   

I am an opposite personality. I DO ALL WORK FIRST...even before taking a bathroom break.  Must have been something in the way I was raised.  I am not sure even that is healthy.  Work always comes first before play...and somehow I play very little.

Coming up sick like this presents an opportunity for me to rest and I am going to take advantage of it and truly rest as much as possible. Somehow I need to FORGET the work that awaits me in the studio.

Do you forget things very often?  I believe it is easy to drop the ball when you heart is not in the direction of what needs to be done.  We are that way with God too.  Our hearts are usually going opposite ways than spending time with Him.  We put it off; we forget it; we go on with our lives with out Him. 

Start your day with Him this morning, don't forget!


“For we know him who said, "It is mine to avenge; I will repay," and again, "the Lord will judge his  people." It is a dreadful thing to fall into the hands of the living God." Hebrews 10"30-31-
