Day 89 of 100

Here's yesterday's painting.

Yesterday was one of the most densely packed days I've had in a long time. Many many things to do, and even more to think about and figure out. My salvation was to turn to God and say, "This is Your show. Always has been. Always will be. I trust in You with all my heart, and I will stop trying to 'figure things out' on my own. I realize that dishonors You."

Based on that surrender, which I had to renew repeatedly throughout a day that lasted past midnight, I got so much good accomplished. Wonderful things falling into place for my aunt's upcoming move to a new assisted care facility,
a move that would appear to greatly improve her current situation.

On my own behalf, I was able to finally make some calls to roofers and insurance people, in order to take steps to take care of my home. It's been a struggle to accept living in this house alone, after an unwanted divorce. But I have finally turned some huge corners and am feeling a peace beyond anything I've felt in a long time.

Shared a very sweet few hours with a friend during the last part of the day. Only time to paint was when the friend stepped out of the house to make a quick phone call. I let the paint try to say all I was feeling. Then, just before bed, a few more layers were added. When I saw the finished product in today's bright morning light, I loved the rich fullness of the colors.
Truly it says what I was feeling yesterday.

Blessings to all who read this post. Leave me a note if you desire. I LOVE responses.
