The heat has been relentless.  We are still patiently waiting for our truck to be done... altho we just dropped it off... as we want to head out to Colorado.  First things first and that is to visit with family before we go... and then maybe visit with more family when we get there. Uncle Charles and Aunt Barbara live in Denver.   

My mind is racing around getting paintings ready to carry up to the Mirada Gallery and finishing up and shipping commissions pieces that are here ready to go... and then making plans for Paddy, the house the watering etc.
  Vicky will be busy! Don't forget washing and packing and of course cleaning the house entirely before leaving.  Why do we do this?

Often just the thought of 'getting out of Dodge' makes us feel unbounded by responsibilities and headed toward what we consider freedom.  Bottom line is we do it to ourselves as far as chaining ourselves to so many responsibilities and signing up for so much stuff.  Can't help but feel if we did one thing really really good, that is better than spreading ourselves thin among so many projects.  We are so tied down that the simple thought of vacation can actually spread more fear into us as we have to do double time just to get out of town for a break.  While we are gone, we tend to 'hurry' through the vacation to get home and back to work.  

We are never satisfied.   Freedom is a state of mind and heart. Freedom is the state of Spirit.  Think about Paul from the bible when he was in jail.  He was still free.  If you have a grateful heart and are willing to embrace and use the gifts that God has graced you with, your life will be full with the simple pleasurable things.  As you honor God, you basically honor yourself with a sense of freedom.  

Be the you God created. Authentic living is effortless. Live the life that God has given you and stop trying to muck it up by doing so much.

"If then your whole body is full of light, with no part of it in darkness, it will be as full of light as when a lamp gives you light with its rays."  Luke 11:36
