This was finished yesterday and is drying and waiting for a heavy varnish coat. This was so much fun to do and it is one I will always remember.  Emma and I have traded paintings of our own last year. This year I was able to paint this soccer painting for her family.

Our TV carrier has been out. We have one of those dishes on the roof. I am not big on TV so I have not missed it, but Terry is suffering.  If we did not have internet with NETFLIX on demand I think he would  have moved us to a hotel by now. I will look up the weather today as I have no idea what is happening and it has been back pretty hot in the afternoon.  Mornings it is about 50 degrees but afternoons are creeping up to ninety again.

I am going to spend much time in prayer this week for abundance for all of us.  Of course I must caution you that what you feel you need may not match what God thinks you need.  He will provide for you as He does for me.  The economy seems worse now then it was a year ago. Our household has learned to do cash only 99 percent of the time.  (that one percent was the trip to NY and the car breaking down.) We talk often about do you work to live or live to work?  When you buy something this week, think about how many working hours you put in to afford what you are buying.  When you go to the grocery store and spend $120, how many hours do you have to work to pay for those groceries? What about when you gas your car or make that car payment?   We tend to slave ourselves to working and working and working.  

Stop and smell the roses and believe that God will supply exactly what you need. Believe....


If you had faith the size of a mustard seed, you could say to this mulberry tree, "Be uprooted and planted in the sea," and it would obey you.--Luke 17:6
