The Painting: From 2006 one of my favorites. I call it delicious color! Very thick paint and very creatively done.
The Thought: I spent half the night before up so yesterday seems like a bad dream... daughter is trying to pass the state MANDATED ION TEST for chemistry. Really? Yes really. I get disgusted hearing mandated this and mandated that. We are becoming like robots in our learning and our living. Between Social Security numbers and being tracked everywhere we go, we really do not have much privacy. The internet wipes out any that use to exist. What is sad is the fact that so much of it on the internet may not be reliable information.
Gaining wisdom takes more than memorizing that ionic chart mandated by the state. Any one can memorize, but to be able to apply what knowledge you are gaining is so much more important. Terry and I spent no less than four hours preparing flash cards, test sheets, match games etc. I never took Chemistry and I sincerely know why.... yuck. Somehow the chemistry mandate reached down into our lives too.
We gain wisdom each day as we walk through our lives with out any mandates. Knowledge exists all around us and we must sort through what seems important and retain only that which may serve us in our lives. The media bombards us with too much information. If we spent a little more time in prayer and a little less time watching TV we might find our lives a lot more calmer and livable where we actually enjoy being alive everyday and look forward to waking and starting our day.
I am tired of the mandated chores that tie me down here in the studio. There is an incredible amount of computer work that ties into painting and marketing. Then you have all the bookwork, etc. I would rather be on my piano or my harp part of the day. I want more Goddated events....celebrating His grace and His love daily.
Will you join me?
