The Painting:  This is similar to one that I sold this week.  It is a second huge painting of thickly applied Holbein Duo Oils in gorgeous roses.

The Thought:  Well Mr Truck was up and running and Terry drove it to work. It sounds about 2 years younger at least.  Perhaps we might have replaced the waterpump before?  I don't think so... I think they just give up.  Other than  a sore body from the contortions he made while fixing it, he is a happy camper.

This was my second morning on the Wii fit.  The first day I did 1 hour of exercising. I hurt so bad the next two days I didn't do anything.  This morning I got up early and worked out doing yoga, Aerobics and running.  It takes 45 min to do 30 min of exercising.   At least I am in the normal range...altho it is up at the border on the BMI.  I hope to try and get it 30-45 min at least 5 days a week.  My oldest daughter allowed me to borrow her Wii fit.  Maybe someone will think about that for my birthday.  Yes that is next month, or actually in about three weeks.

Keeping fit for the body is a challenge as we grow older.  The body creaks and aches a bit more when you over do it.  Seems like keeping fit in my faith and walk with the Lord comes easier as I get older. I feel more relaxed and less pressured by go go go and do do do.  It become less important at times to push myself...I stop and breath and take the time to think before reacting.

How is your "keeping fit" with God?  It has to be more than five times a week for sure.  He is a constant for you... realize that this moment.


“Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.” Romans 12:2

Hi Laurie, needless to say I love your horse paintings. But, I find your flowers and your sailboat paintings fantastic as well. I love your technique of application....all that lush, thick oil paint. WOW!

Good morning sis,
Everything is coming up roses. I had to use that phrase. Gorgeous roses!
Our Bible Study group is studying Romans and last night was studied chapter 12.Coincidence. It is short chapter and I thought we would finish in no time but it opened up a lot of discussion - a very good thing.
Arlo has not been up to snuff lately, intestinally(did I just create a word? I think I will keep it :-)) speaking so today he will have a CAT scan. Dr suspects diverticulitis and I am praying that it is nothing more than that. We can easily work with that as I have had those diverticuli for many years as have most folks over 50.
Love you
