The Painting: It was a red day and I immersed myself in values of red highlighting with rich oranges and soft yellows. A complimentary background of green pops these summer beauties right off the canvas.
The Thought: Did you ever wake up in the morning NOT wanting to do what was on the agenda for the day? Sometimes we want to break free of the monotony or the constant demands on our schedules and just be free.
What is being free? Free to skip out on premade plans and obligations? Free to walk away from responsibility? Free to lay in bed and read a book? Each of us has our own vision of freedom. Unfortunately in our world it is not easy to find freedom. We have cornered ourselves and covered up our freedom with our lifestyles. We did it to ourselves, no one else did.
Today would be the day to embrace the idea of spiritual freedom. It has absolutely no limits. You have the choice on what thoughts pass through today and what fills your heart. Choose today to fill it with love and thanks staying in constant contact with God today. You will find yourself breaking through many of your own self-imposed limitations by indulging in spiritual connectivity with God.
Choose encouraging words today. Choose uplifting thoughts. Create new positive habits and enjoy new freedom.
"For you were called to freedom, brothers and sisters." Galatians 5:13
