PROTECTED from myself.
Yesterday I did not work on the two little girls. I got up Saturday morning with the intention of spending about two hours on the computer and getting my body outside to work in the yard. When Terry didn't get up, I got tangled further in the www.artistsoftexas.blogspot.com redoing some of the content and the next thing I knew it was almost 11:30 am.
I spent the next hour kicking myself for allowing that to happen. I hate wasting time inside on the computer when I could be outside taking in God's glory. I spent about an hour with the cloud hanging over me, feeling discouraged and disappointed in myself. I gradually begin talking to myself to recenter and find my spot with God. I had the mind's eye thought that I could successfully do this and I was going to follow through. It took about two hours, but the balance came back and I was back in a good place emotionally.
I will not paint when I am in a negative mind frame. Nothing positive comes out of it. No matter where you are or what is happening around you, you must learn to allow those negative thoughts to roll through you. Begin breathing in God's breathe of life and slowly find a quiet place to talk to Him.
You are His beloved child. The very heart of you is secure in His serenity that Christ's Spirit remains at your core being. From this inner warmth and belief comes protection from those negative thoughts and happenings. I was able to return to my day, smiling and enjoying the afternoon with Terry. Allow your peace to maintain your presence.
