Traveling always takes a full day out of the work week, but I enjoyed the trip into Dallas yesterday. Not only did we see Ben, but we saw RAIN.  Real rain.  Also saw Interstate 30 spotted with wrecks, mostly 18 wheelers going to fast on the rain slick highway.   We travel in the Passat and made the trip in and out safely with a quick stop at Whole Foods for fruit.
I have been busy with the in the planning of our second annual art show at the Dutch Art Gallery in Dallas.  The postcards have been ordered, book marks are ordered, Judy Mackey is doing the coordination between the gallery and the artists, I am building an ad for American Art Collector and we have an article for Western Art Collector, Debbie Lincoln is tracking our spending... and all is in order but I still feel things are on the edge. I did not do all of this last year, Kay Wyne took care of everything.  EVERYTHING.   Judy stepped up to help with the show since Kay has a daughter getting married in September.

We have probably 25-30 participating artists in the show and the work is solid. I cannot wait to meet our newer members.  That was the absolute best part of last year was gathering with everyone at the opening reception and all that creativity bouncing through out the room.  
On the way into Dallas yesterday, I had brought a small Bible with me to read out loud as Terry drove.  I was at the back of the New Testament and thinking of beginning Revelations, but hesitated and read The First Letter of John.  I was a bit perplexed as I read it verse by verse and John basically hammered home the same words in about 50 or more combinations.  It struck me so because I can't remember the last time I read word for word the entire chapter.  Reading aloud you are even more aware of the consistent "mantra" he is pounding home.  So I chose then to read the First Letter from Peter. I really liked that one. It was a mini writing of some of the strongest points through out the bible.  Why have I not been back in this area to study?   Would welcome your thoughts comparing the two books and writings of Peter and John in their First Letters.
 "Do not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For everything in the world—the cravings of sinful man, the lust of his eyes and the boasting of what he has and does—comes not from the Father but from the world. The world and its desires pass away, but the man who does the will of God lives forever." 1 John  2:15-17
