The Painting: This is Regal Leo. don't ask me why as I can't tell you. The colors are so rich with the deep sunset it just became Regal Leo. Leo like the lion with the thick mane...just like this Leo. There are over 25 layers of paint on this mane. Only in Holbein Duo oils and only in my signature style.
The Thought: Well, turkey day has gone but the left overs are in the fridge. We were blessed with our day at Stacey's. Crystal woke up feeling much better (Thank you Target Pharmacist for your recommendations.) She didn't mingle with family so closely but did enjoy playing video games with Jon and watching the UPS movie. I have not seen it yet... maybe this weekend.
Larry out did himself with cooking. Stacey was the pastry chef with 7 or 8 pies...yum, some of those are in my refrig right now. There were over 20 eating and we cleaned up that bird nicely. There were two flavors of dressing with the meal, whipped potatoes, glazed carrots and yummy bread, cranberries and Stacey's famous Ambrosia. Dessert came out as Pumpkin pies in a variety of types, pumpkin crunch cake, pecan pie, and apple pie. Oh, don't forget the whipped cream.
Stacey was smart. She went to Walmart and bought plastic containers cheap so we could all bring home leftovers. She had plans to be up and out shopping by four this morning with her best friend Shannon. Had Crystal been feeling better we would have spent the night and joined them.
So much preparation went into this fabulous meal. Our life should be no different. Preparation makes a difference. Reading the bible and praying prepares you for what you face out in the world. If you are not prepared you cannot succeed or even survive. Setting your mind to be in sync with God's word as you journey forward, you cannot fail. It has been said failure is only an illusion when you stop and sit and wallow in your misery or thoughts. Get up and move; when you do you will evolve form the place you have stopped. You will be moving forward. You will be growing.
Prepare your life for the good of God and what He has generously provided for you. Take your hands out of your pockets and lift them to the Heavens to receive. Prepare your heart to receive.
