I became a pear person this past weekend. I use to be known as the pear lady as I painted pears almost as much as I painted horses... but we had some new pears from the store and during the rainstorms there was not much to do but paint by candle light and I did... a pear and an apple.

Our trip to Dallas was short.  We bible studied in the car on the way in, the prophet Jeremiah.  The first mission, I did deliver all the paintings to the Dutch Art Gallery for the upcoming Artists of Texas show.  I was wowed by the depth of work that has arrived from our artists across the state.  We have 45 participating artists.  Pam Massar at DAG is a wonderful host for this group. I got to meet Texas Artist Shirley Quaid whose work I absolutely drool over and I got to see the work in person.

After we left the gallery we headed to the FLAG store and Terry brought home a new TEXAS flag.  Once it is hanging I will take pictures. We made plans to get a BIG TALL flag pole.

Then to Whole Foods for 'stuff' we cannot buy here... organic fruits, lactose free Horizon milk and cultured Coconut milk. YUM....and then to Mom's to visit for about an hour before leaving and fighting traffic exiting Dallas.  It was a relief to cross the GREAT WATERS of Lake Ray Hubbard and head back to the quiet of East Texas.

Wonder if that is similar to crossing that great divide between living here on earth and living with the Father?  

I leave you with prayers of abundance today and the promise of His love. Open your heart and lift your hands to receive His great love, grace and gifts.   Below is part of the prayer from Jeremiah to the Lord.  You can read the rest in Jeremiah Chapter 10.


 "I know, O LORD, that a man's life is not his own; it is not for man to direct his steps. Correct me, LORD, but only with justice—not in your anger,  lest you reduce me to nothing." Jeremiah 10:23-24
