The Painting: This is the second in the mini series I am doing. Again a perfect stocking stuffer for your equine lover.
The Thought: With this season of advent I am challenging you to renew the SPIRIT and enrich your life. Every year at the end of the year we all begin thinking about New Year's Resolutions. I do not even want to go there.
Give some thought as to how you can renew the Spirit in your life. You might think about praying a bit more and talking and walking with God. Do it when you are not distracted...when things are calm. If the weather allows, try walking outside and surround yourself with God's creation. I guarantee you will be calmer and more rested when you are done.
Yesterday I continued on with my calmness and my moment by moment talks with God. Every single time I began to stress or allow fear to creep in when I was dealing with things, I told it NO. And I turned my thoughts to God immediately. I took a breath and continued with my day ignoring the things that beckoned me to chaos. Whenever it seemed I was getting buried with too much to do... I turned to Him and said... let it be done as you will it to be done. ... in Your time and not mine. Oh my did the stress dissipate... someone else was responsible and it was not me.
Today start that walk and let Him have the chaos and stress... He is waiting with open arms and an warm heart....
"In the sixth month, God sent the angel Gabriel to Nazareth, a town in Galilee, to a virgin pledged to be married to a man named Joseph, a descendant of David. The virgin's name was Mary. The angel went to her and said, "Greetings, you who are highly favored! The Lord is with you.” Luke 1:26-28.
