The Painting: This is a large version of a small painting I did entitled "The Moon."  The little one just sold and as I was packing it to ship, I decided I wanted to paint a big one. That is what I usually do with the little ones is use them as a test for colour and movement.

The Thought: Wii is still happening in the morning.  When I do over 45 minutes though, I feel whipped.   That is what I did yesterday.  I hit the shower when I was done and dried off and began to dress realizing I was so tired I wanted to fall back into bed.

The journeys we face in life are not always easy. Whatever you are confronting right now, know you are gaining both experience and strength as you go through this time in your life.  

Last night I began to wonder if I was doomed as I walked into the daughter's room and she had used permanent marker to draw on a piece of clothing...with a symbol of something not acceptable to this household...and permanent marker staining her less than two month old bedspread.  (Massively on her bed..not just a few markers...more like BLEED from the tip of the marker.) Of course it does not wash out... the comforter is in the dryer right now and it will be back on the bed with the marks in tack as scars to remind her of thinking of house rules of not doing "art" in bed.  As I lay in bed last night I prayed really hard to have an open heart and mind to the situation and the ability to forgive and move on.  I can only pray she has learned something in the process.  I have.  No markers out of the studio.

I will pray for you today...and please pray for me as we both go one step at a time with Him by our side.
