I seem to paint a trio picture once a year of these contrasting horses.
This abstract horse painting is for my Denver show.
It is a nice 36 x 36 inches in size with the painting extending on the wrap canvas 2 inches deep. No frame is needed.

Throwing Rocks

I once told you how I felt about life that we tend to gather up rocks and stuff them in our pockets. You never know when you will need all those rocks you carry around.  Your load would be much lighter without them.

This next story is about rocks but slightly different.  We have a pond out back behind the house. Normally we have mini fishermen and their grandpas instructing them on casting and fishing.   Last week there was a little boy with a small sailboat on the bank.  He was so excited placing the boat into the water and realized there was not much wind so he splashed the water making waves and the little boat ended up stuck in the middle of the pond.  His grandpa was sitting on the park bench and he realized what had happened.  He was across the end of the pond from where the little boy stood.

Grandpa gathered up some nearby rocks and pebbles and began throwing the rocks at the little boat. Oh that little boy was hysterical. He thought his grandpa was trying to sink his boat.  His grandmother hurried across the little dam to where he was standing sobbing his heart out crying to his grandpa  to stop hurting his boat.  Grandma gathered him close soothing him and pointed out to the pond where the little boat was rocking on tiny ripples heading right back to where the little boy stood.  He reached down and grasp that sailboat to his chest and you could hear his sigh across the water.

I would say there are times in life when we truly feel God is throwing rocks at us.  Our boats are literally rocking and we are totally unstable. NOTHING seems to go right.  God is throwing those rocks at us to bring us back home to Him. The longer we deny Him, the more rocks hit the waters around us... the ripples are slowly going to bring us back to Him.

It is up to you...are you floating freely and allowing Him to work in your life or are you struggling and fighting Him?


Isaiah 41:10 "Don’t be afraid, for I am with you! Don’t be frightened, for I am your God! I strengthen you – yes, I help you – yes, I uphold you with my saving right hand!"

The rock story made me have tears in my eyes (good tears) thanks for sharing that. Your horse painting is awesome in this form.
