"Rehab" Boy and Dog Painting by Texas Artist Laurie Pace

9 x 12  Oil on Canvas

I had a request to repaint this subject. I had done the original several years ago and it lives in Oklahoma.  A movie director had contacted me for use of the image so I painted another one very similar for them to use the image to make a puzzle out of it for a movie being made.

This new original painting is available to purchase.
Contact me to purchase by check or paypal. Laurie

I received my email from Neale Donald Walsh yesterday on the "continuation day".  That is the day you die... the continuation to the next journey where you are embraced by all of those who have gone before you.  When you think about it, people are born and die daily.  We all have to do born and die. Life is a continuation and death is just part of that continuation.

I do believe this message came to us at the perfect time.  We know Dad (Ben) is released from his earthly pains and discomfort. He is in the arms of those he loved here on earth, his wife and son, his parents, his brothers and sisters and many of the folks he has known through out his life that preceded him in death.

Seems as I have grown older my view point of things has evolved and continued to a new place and new insight. God is great in His touch on our lives, always knowing what we need before we even have the thought in our head.  Trusting our lives to Him and to His plan does not come easy to our nature. 

Yesterday when I told you to share with three people who mean something special in your life, I hope you did it. I will share mine with you....

I have three good friends that live out of state from me. The first mentioned, I know by sight (Niki) as she has come and helped me pack and move, attended my art shows and adopted me as her treasured lil sis. Niki paints as I do and has the true soul of an artist and she is the giver of the heart.   Another  friend (CL) that I want to mention, lives in another state and I have not had the opportunity to meet her in person; our relationship through phone and email has grown stronger over the years. She is the tough cookie big sis that always tell it to me straight and does not sugar coat it. Her insight into the soul sends me scampering to read more and pray openly. She reads situations well like Terry does and summarizes things and sorts them out methodically. I can always depend on her to set me straight when I am doing it wrong.   The third friend, (Jan) is a woman I knew when we lived in Trophy Club, TX. She then moved on to Arizona to be closer to her kids, but we were blessed with several years together as neighbors and she came to help me unpack from one of my moves. Jan grew up in the same religious denomination I did and in a similar family, so we had much in common. Jan is my tender sister of the heart and my prayer partner. 

 Always God's timing.  These three women are TREASURES in my life. They are gifts from Him. Their constant presence in my life has brought joy, guidance, empathy, laughter, wisdom and love.  They are sisters of my heart and I want them each to know they have touched my life forever and in very positive ways.  They are full of grace, beauty, wisdom, kindness and love... and have led by example through out their lives.  I am richly blessed with them in my life and their gifts surround me always. 

I am off to walk... may your day be filled with abundance....


“And this is my prayer: that your love may abound more and more in knowledge and depth of insight, so that you may be able to discern what is best and may be pure and blameless until the day of Christ,”- Philippians 1:9-10
