The Painting: Fun with an Appaloosa... color and striking compliments. Gorgeous Oil Painting on Stretched.
The Thought: Spots...I guess we all have them. We have rough spots, smooth spots and colorful spots...both on our bodies and in our lives. Crystal always tells me that the brains of the appaloosa and the dalmatian are similar and lacking some genetic powers of smart...but I find that hard to believe. I have never tried to look it up... but I know they both have powerful spots.
When I paint my Appy's I love having fun with my colors and blending to create that fresh look of spontaneity. Our 'spots' in life are the things that keep our life from being smooth all the time. They can be bright spots or dismal spots. They are often unplanned spots of things we could not predict happening to us in our lives. Our plans are never His plans and we tend to get panicky when we are free falling and not able to control what is happening. That is a free falling spot in life.
I know for a fact though, what ever 'SPOT' I am in, God is there with me, protecting, guiding and giving me the strength I need to walk the walk through that 'spot' in life.
What color are your spots today? God has a wonderful sense of humor.
“Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.”- Psalm 139:23-24
