Sidewalk Chalk

As many of you know I have recently moved from Central Washington to Bend Oregon.  We are currently living in our Motor Home while we wait for our house to close.  A retired couple in our campground gave my boys a container of sidewalk chalk......  We had a great time decorating the circle drive in front of our site.  Slowing down and just playing with my boys for a bit allowed me to reflect on the fact that I really need to enjoy life in the moment for what it is.  I have really been anxious about the future and tying up all the loose ends.  God really impressed on me to trust.

Philippians 4:6

Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.

Standing alone


Posted by PicasaLast week I let you in on my process a bit when I posted the beginnings of this painting.  Typically I wait to post until I have finished a piece, but God has been speaking to me specifically regarding those times I feel that I am standing alone.  While painting this I found myself wondering why I dwell in that place.  I feel as if God is prompting me to lean into his presence.  It is as if he is saying I am right here with you, all you need to do is trust.   This painting has taken some interesting twists and it is not yet finished.  It is my prayer today that I would recognize the fact that I am not standing alone, I am standing with the father.

John 8:15-17

You judge by human standards; I pass judgment on no one. But if I do judge, my decisions are right, because I am not alone. I stand with the Father, who sent me.  In your own Law it is written that the testimony of two men is valid.
