Christmas Light overcomes Chaos

I finally got some time off, Wow, what a season!
 the past few days have really been a respite for me. A chance to stay home and contemplate what my next steps are .

This whole year has seemed chaotic and spinning, between family, business, events in the US and the world, I am again humbled that the Father of all chose me to be one of HIS!

So, one of the things that I have tried over this period of time was a loose abstract, which is very foreign to me. It came out so easily, every stroke with precision, purpose. It was exciting to paint.

It wasn't until after, looking at it , that it came to me exactly what it represented. 

To me, it is a picture of a glimmer of what we are going to see in the not so distant future. That the LORD OF LIGHT, will, eventually come and overtake the chaos of this world.

Just a catch up...

This is the day the Lord has took the day off. I tried to sit on the couch and found out I couldn't....I just get ansy.  

One of the Lord's commandments is to keep the Sabboth, and rest.  I have learned over the years that I MUST take one day off a week or I get over~stressed then I get sick =-[    So, I have learned one of the many reasons that God told us to rest. 

I did putz in the greenhouse, replanted the tomato seedlings that I planted as seeds about a month ago, they are up about 3". I turned my head right at the right time to tell Ranger to NOT EAT THEM!!  She saw green and loves salad and grass....I could just see that...poof, there go the tomatos...LOL!!  I planted more Stevia, the first seeds did nothing.  I wonder how strawberries would grow indoors, anyone ever try it?   If we were to sustain ourselves, where would we get FRUIT?????? It saddens me to see all of the orchards gone, and the ppl with trees just let the fruit rot........what a sad, wasteful generation we have been. We have taken so much for granted!

The days are getting so short. I am thankful for the joy of painting holiday windows to make the first part of winter bearable. We are usuallly home by around 4 when the sun is getting ready to go down.=-[   Fashion goes out the door with the cold....warmth is the order of the day!!

Well, caught up for next time, maybeeee.

Thank you Lord!!!!

Why is it............

I wish that I had the passion for what I do when I was younger...I had the drive, yeah, but Passion? That is now coming since I seem to have found my nitch, my style if you will....

Too bad that we don't know things younger, or that we can't unzip someones brain and pour in what we know and zip em back up! LOL

I am blessed, always have been. Maybe not from someone else s point of view, but....I don't want to be rich...especially if it is offa someone else s back!! I don't want a big house.....I would have to clean it.....I don't want acreage because I would be responsible for it. I want to be me...and I thank God for that!

I always wanted to be a famous oil painter.....Guess what...I am .......LOL

But yes, I tried oil painting...I absolutely love it, tried to get commissions on ebay..It happened....20 paintings at the same time I had Christmas windows up the wazooo......I did it...but never again during the holiday season!

On my website. Go to the 'oil paintings' page for a sample of what I have done.....they are all different!! I haven't found my own style there is coming!! I FEEL IT!!

May the Lord Bless you and keep you!
