The Painting:  Energy... night... passion... it all seem to appear on the canvas.

The Thought:  A lot of stuff appears at night... just ask my Kerrie Blue Terrier, Paddy.

 We moved to the country and this dog does not like the outside and especially does not like the outside at night.  He is not a tiny dog... He is about 40 inches tall and almost 60 pounds.  We already established he cannot catch a deer, but he is swift and can out distance us pretty quick.

Night time is not his time anymore.  He used to love night life.  We never could get him to come in. I remember going out in the backyard in Justin (Where we had two acres) and using a flashlight to herd him and Annie back in the house. They loved the nighttime.   

If it is after seven PM.. Paddy is NOT going outside.  The noise is deafening on the pond and he will not budge from the house.  He is convinced there are more than lions and tigers and bears out there....he truly doesn't know what it is, but he does not like it at all.

I can't blame him. I am squeamish about the walk from the back door to the hot tub.  

We have to remember God made the night just as He made the day.
With the rotation of the earth we pass from the rays of the sun to the careful watch of the moon... beaming God's grace to us... accompanied by the host of stars in the heavens.  Symbolically night is the time for rest for us humans... but for those darn bull frogs... that is when the action begins and the symphony starts.

I guess you have to be there. Maybe I need to record it all once.  God is there with them and Paddy and I and He is just grinning to beat the band, or is that to outshine those frogs?

We had a special day yesterday with a fabulous visit from my heart sister Jan that lovingly proofs all my Heart books each year. She and her husband Arlo were in for a grand-daugther's graduation from college here in Texas. The drove two hours to spend the day with us and it was a glorious day. Jan has not aged a bit in the three or four years since I last hugged her neck and Arlo is as handsome as ever.  We promised to return the visit to Phoenix this year so I can visit her wonderful life.  We may have to leave Paddy at home.


“The LORD your God is with you, he is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you, he will quiet you with his love, he will rejoice over you with singing.”- Zephaniah 3:17  (Even with the singing of the bull frogs.....)
