Where before there was anonymity, now there is intimacy; where before there was fear, now there is courage; where before in your life there was awkwardness, now there is a rhythm of grace and gracefulness; where before you used to be jagged, now you are elegant and in rhythm with your self. When love awakens in your life, it is like a rebirth, a new beginning."  John O'Donohue, Anam Cara: A book of Celtic Wisdom I have not read John's work a

Because life is a world full of risk taking and possibilities. No matter how hard or easy life is; I will always find a way to enjoy myself; even in the midst of circumstances; because problems is a sense of adventure in Sheep's clothing." Temitope Owosela The richness of paint reminds me of the richness of life.  I write often of the layers in life and the layers in the life of a painting. I love scribing my name into those layers making it part of the composition in a dimensional statement.   Is t

Charles Dickens, Great Expectations So this is a close up of the head of the horse...still in colors not the norm for me but truly enjoying the beauty of each of them. I was not going to use my knife, but i am most comfortable with my knife. Some things I cannot change so easily. I wante

Elinor Glyn Life can be filled with times of "haze".  This particular canvas started out with a haze.  I will be sharing progression on it for the next few posts... but it is not done as of this journal.  For the artist that is reading... this is oil using walnut oil with it to blend the subtle colors together. So soft and so not my normal palette.   I have been contemplating the current changes just in my life as it happens, journeying into the life of a grandmother to four little

Hallelujah is our Song . . . Laurie Pace Journal

We are the Easter people and hallelujah is our song.” ― Pope John Paul II "Easter means that this life on earth is not all there is. Jesus went "to prepare a place for us" in His Father’s heavenly mansions for all eternity. Jesus died for our sins, paying our penalty, so that we could be forgiven. He was resurrected, to prove that death has no hold on those who repent and accept Him as Savior. This life on earth is a prelude to eternal joy with our Lord. Easter is a celebration of our eternal destiny.    Joanna Fuchs I am with fami

Not necessarily with the love of our desiring, but with a demanding love, even a demeaning love—as in washing the feet of faithless friends who will run away and leave you naked to your enemies.” ― Richard John Neuhaus, Death On A Friday Afternoon: Meditations On The Last Words Of Jesus From The Cross This week continues as we have arrived today to what we call Maundy Thursday in our home.  It is the day of the Last Supper or of the Las

The LORD is the stronghold of my life— of whom shall I be afraid? Psalm 27:1 #horsepainting  #lauriepaceart  #equinear

Our Deepest Fear . . . Horse Paintings by Texas Artist Laurie Pace

Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, 'Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?' Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not
