Check out on my left sidebar the VOTE FOR EDDY. This remarkable young man has achieved so much in his young life and when his mom wrote me,  I promised to share the vote to have him apart of the legends team for College Baseball.


The Painting:  I worked today on several small paintings and this is one. I always remember NY fondly and the beautiful hydrangea in blues, pinks and whites.

The Thought:  When I wrote yesterday about fear, I should have mentioned vulnerability.  That was probably more accurate.  In the hot tub it was more vulnerability than anything else.  Today I was hit with another vulnerable wave of 'where am I in this strange house'.  Conni Togel (http://www.Charisma-art.com) told me you cannot dig up and replant old trees.  They just won't make it.  I know Terry and I needed to make this move out of Dallas and so far we do love it here. Life is so much more peaceful. Paul and Vicki always said it was a slice of heaven and we are beginning to understand that.


The vulnerability creeps in to unbalance me.  So whatever the situation is, I know I am not alone nor am I vulnerable. At any time anxiety begins to creep in, I can close my eyes and take slow deep breaths and know the feeling will pass.  I spend that time centering myself in God and the indwelling pure love of His Grace and Holy Spirit.   With this I am comforted and reassured. Calm will follow and I can go about my business.


Yesterday I attended the 'Tall Tree Women's Club'.  I meet at least 40 new faces from our neighborhood and several from our street.  Vicki Fletcher just happened to be the guest speaker, so I loved hearing about her adventures as a police woman.  The food was good, the fellowship even better and every single woman made me feel at home.  


I also found out they have a canasta club.  Now I have to remember how to play. I used to play this growing up with my cousins. 


I will pray for you today, what ever your vulnerability, give it up to God today.

Good Morning Laurie from Nevada!
Whew...you always put it in a nutshell for me and manage to make my day better....it's no wonder I still read your blog EVERY Morning! Not to mention your fantastic art work!!! Vunerable is the word I've been searching for as to my feelings on our recent move...Although I absolutely love where I am now, I have felt a little lost (vunerable) and just trying to find my place and get that wiggle your bottom, cozy kind of comfortable in our new home. Your new place looks fabulous and I'm sure it won't take you long to get that feeling.
Take Care
