The Painting:  Something about a journey sinks in with this painting.  The roughness of the terrain beneath the hooves speaks of unpredictable ground;  the background also uncertain as to sky or mountains, leaving much up to the observer. I rather enjoyed my journey as I painted it.

The Thought:  The painting reflects my thought as I realize how uncertain I am of the wheres and whys of both today and tomorrow.  The steady hand of the Lord in my life is what maintains my sanity.

I have found myself falling asleep at night with my prayer beads in my hand.  Last night I looped it twice around my wrist and when I was jostled awake by Terry's snoring, I had them in hand and pulled them off. Circling around I begin praying using the ACTS method on the four groups of seven.  Adoration, Confession, Thanksgiving and Supplication.  In the early hours of 2 a.m. I normally cannot make it around the circle. When I am wide awake and praying, the circling takes 30-45 minutes to make the circle. They bring great comfort to me at all hours.

I had misplaced my original set given to me by a friend and ordered a new set for myself and Crystal from  Inner Light.   Nancy is a wonder to work with, especially with my artistic wants and needs. Crystals is done in beautiful greens and turquoise...and Nancy did mine in something called Jasper beads I believe and they have all the beautiful earth tones I wanted.  Since getting them last week, it gives a deeper purpose as I pray because of the hands on effect with my mind. (That is the left side of my brain!)  I use them three to four times a day and my prayer time has increased as has my focus.

Focus today on those you need to pray for who many not be able to pray for themselves. There are many in our lives battling cancer, Alzheimers, diabetes, unemployment, divorce, alcohol, drugs, loneliness etc....

Remember when you pray to give thanks for the many bounties we do have with our food, shelter, love, family, friends, the soil of the earth, the song of the birds, the fresh water, the cover of the sky with the sun and moon, etc.

Adoration, praise and thanks to our Father who cares for each of us.


"God's love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit that has been given to us." --Romans 5:5
