The Painting: I mentioned above this was a commissioned painting for a collector in Missouri and they already own Crossing the Mississippi...and now they wanted one with the color palette of November Days....and here it is.

The Thought:  I am late posting today because I have been working. Mom has been helping too and I still have more to do, but in the posting I am going to share a few things before jumping in to my thoughts of the first Sunday in Advent.

First,   I have opened a Cafe Press Store to enable you to find affordable gifts with my horses!  I chose some favorites from this year and some products to put them on. I did not mark them up much at all to have the artwork. Some have a 99 cent mark up and some have a $2.00 mark up...but I wanted to have something fun for stocking stuffers or for small gifts for friends.  If you can't find something you want or IF you want one of your horse purchases on something JUST for you...let me know.  Click on the name below.

There are many neat gifts to consider!

Next, note up in the top right corner there is a new REGISTER TO RECEIVE this blog as an email. The old one is just below it.  If you are signed up already, please redo it on the new link above on top. It was brought to my attention last week that there were ads that were questionable coming out with my blog.  The feedblitz folks wanted a fortune to  have the ads taken off.  I have a large readership with this blog and simply could not afford to go no ads and pay them $$$$ every month.  So I am switching to this new sign up with google, who owns blogger.

Advent... All week I have been reminding you to prepare, and here I am running late.  I was in tears before I even hit the kitchen at 5:30 this morning, knowing I still had so much to do to try and be ready for this blog this morning... and I am not ready yet.  My mind thought through so many ways to approach Advent this year differently than last.  I went through the process of maybe drawing and creating a piece of art each week recorded, or telling the story as Mary lived it, or just really doing in depth into the heart of it all. 

One of my most favorite books in the bible is Isaiah.  It is in Isaiah we find a mention of the coming birth of Jesus long long before it would occur.  Isaiah 7:14, "Therefore the Lord Himself will give you a sign: The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and will call Him Immanuel."
How could this be there so far ahead of the actual happening?  God spoke to Isaiah and provided him with the knowledge that this would come to pass.  Isaiah was a dedicated Prophet who lived close in heart with God. Isaiah was one of the four major prophets in the Old Testament. His prophecies include much about the coming Messiah. For this reason his work is sometimes called 'the fifth Gospel.'

We cannot predict our future or what is going to happen to us or our loved ones. To have such knowledge one would have to be of God and God of him.  Open your heart today and listen to the God and what He will share with you for your life.

For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.”  Isaiah 9:6
