The Painting:  This is a close up shot of this painting, just a piece of it.  This painting was varnished yesterday and I took a few close up shots of it.  I haven't painted much but will be starting some new things right now you get a snap shot close up of the red ponies.

The Thought: A shot at the phrase that comes to mind.  Things that happen in our lives often determine our direction.  Unfortunately that is when we desperately come back to the Lord, seeking what ever it is that we need.  Why wait until things are so bad?  

Of course as I reflect on those words I know the answer myself.  Life.  Life keeps us caught up running to catch up with the "next best thing".   The entire time the best thing is right inside of us waiting to be opened.  That would be our hearts. 

We all want a shot at life.  What is your definition of this? What is a "good life" to you?   I think the older you are your priorities change. You find with the accumulating years of life that accumulating stuff only weighs you down with more responsibilities and bills.  I wish I had answers to how to have a quick fix, but that does not exist.   Only hard work and prayer can help you realign your life to the point that you have a good shot at life.  It is a give and take with yourself between the needy side and the wanting side.

Your best shot is to let go and let God.  He provides every need.


“For, "All men are like grass, and all their glory is like the flowers of the field; the grass withers and the flowers fall, but the word of the Lord stands forever." And this is the word that was preached to you.
” 1 Peter 1:24-25
