The Painting: I really liked the contrast of the gold green and the crimson red in this horse painting. Each horse also is very distinctive. This is acrylic. I did not list it correctly the first few days. I use a template bringing the photos in and I simply was so tired I missed it!
The Thought: I remember how much I hate moving...but this move and house sale is truly in His hands. No panic yet. There will be by Saturday night! The Big trash pick up was suppose to occur on Wednesday and they have not come yet and this is Friday morning.
Terry woke up this morning at 4 am and could not sleep. I gave him a Benedryl to put him back to sleep and he was snoring in just seconds. I began doing my "Arlo" breathing. (For those of you who have never heard me use that term... Arlo Wenstrand is married to my big sister...Jan. He is proudly airforce...a pilot and one of the finest men we know.) When I had trouble sleeping years ago, Arlo told me to do slow deep breathing and I would fall back to sleep as all that extra oxygen reached my blood stream. It works 95% of the time and did for me. I have trouble convincing Terry to use it. (My back up system is counting backwards from 700. Rarely do I make 500.)
Put your hands on your stomach and slowly take in air through your nostrils. Feel your stomach rise like a balloon filling with air. As it expands outward, HOLD IT... and then slowly release the air, feeling your stomach return to normal. Do this 3-6 times. It truly works...tried and true. Your body relaxes as all the oxygen races through and you begin to respond to the natural power in your own body.
God worked hard on creating us in His Image. Do you think He ever sleeps? That is worth a response somewhere.... Does God sleep? We know He rested on the Seventh Day of creation, but did He sleep?
