The Painting:  Easier to watch! This painting was created to raise funds for Diabetes Research.

The Thought:    Do you think it is important to take time for yourself?  Sometimes I think it should be a mantra ... 'TIME FOR ME'.  Of course that is after 'TIME FOR HIM'... and I mean time for God, not for your husband.  

I heard some country western song... btw, that is all I seem to pick up on my radio here...about a CW singer croaning out the story of 'It's all about you..."  and he wants to say it needs to be about him now as he is weary of the "all about you" syndrome of his girlfriend.   I don't know where he found that woman, but the women in my family are not that way.  We are caretakers of everyone but ourselves.  

You my dear friend, are God's child and you are His beloved.  He would want you to set aside some time for yourself to do something fun and in the painting, collecting shells at the beach or scrapbooking or something that feeds and nurtures your creativity and inner soul.  

Some of us may just need a few quiet moments to recharge.  God doesn't sit there and put conditions of His love for us.  We put enough conditions on our lives all by ourselves. Divine love comes with out strings.

Take care of yourself this weekend.  Spend time with yourself doing something fun.


"There for be imitators of God, as beloved children, and live in love, as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us."  Ephesians 5:1-2
