Sorry that I will not be there Sunday

Sorry that I will not be there Sunday

The ancients thought that the breath of life was your soul

My demons are attacking and testing me.

I know the body is not the soul

Then why do I ask God to heal my Body

This week came another health event

I developed high fever, sweats. And pain

My leg was infected

I am diabetic, my sugar very high

Fear griedd me. I liked to walk

But then I thought my soul was not in trpuble, jost my body

I was not afraid

The Doctor did his work and with treatment and a special boot I will be soon walking

This event gave me a greater understanding of self and God.

Building Blocks

Paul Harvey Writes: We tried so hard to make things better for our kids that we made them worse. For my grandchildren, I'd like better. I'd really like for them to know about hand me down clothes and homemade ice cream and leftover meat loaf sandwiches. I really would. I hope you learn humility by being humiliated, and that you learn honesty by being cheated. I hope you learn to make your own bed and mow the lawn and wash the car.And I really hope nobody gives you a brand new car when you are sixteen.It will be good if at least one time you can see puppies born and your old dog put to sleep.I hope you get a black eye fighting for something you believe in.I hope you have to share a bedroom with your younger brother/sister. And it's all right if you have to draw a line down the middle of the room, but when he wants to crawl under the covers with you because he's scared, I hope you let him.When you want to see a movie and your little brother/sister wants to tag along, I hope you'll let him/her.I hope you have to walk uphill to school with your friends and that you live in a town where you can do it safely.On rainy days when you have to catch a ride, I hope you don't ask your driver to drop you two blocks away so you won't be seen riding with someone as uncool as your Mom..If you want a slingshot, I hope your Dad teaches you how to make one instead of buying one.I hope you learn to dig in the dirt and read books.When you learn to use computers, I hope you also learn to add and subtract in your head.I hope you get teased by your friends when you have your first crush on a boy\girl, and when you talk back to your mother that you learn what ivory soap tastes like.May you skin your knee climbing a mountain, burn your hand on a stove and stick your tongue on a frozen flagpole.I don't care if you try a beer once, but I hope you don't like it.. And if a friend offers you dope or a joint, I hope you realize he is not your friend.I sure hope you make time to sit on a porch with your Grandma/Grandpa and go fishing with your Uncle.May you feel sorrow at a funeral and joy during the holidays.I hope your mother punishes you when you throw a baseball through your neighbor's window and that she hugs you and kisses you at Hannukah/Christmas time when you give her a plaster mold of your hand. These things I wish for you - tough times and disappointment, hard work and happiness. To me, it's the only way to appreciate life.Written with a pen.. Sealed with a kiss. I'm here for you. And if I die before you do, I'll go to heaven and wait for you.

I Fear No Evil
Gramma Ann has left a new comment on your post "I Fear No Evil": I loved that video, if humans could just get along like the animals, but someday they will...Thank you for popping by and visiting my blog. Have a great week-end!

From Marion Boddy-Evans

If you're struggling with the concept of painting in an expressive style, think of it as letting the application of the paint do most of the talking rather than the realism of the subject. Someone looking at the finished painting should be able to share how you applied the paint, to experience the tactile qualities of paint and brush, to realize what they're looking at is something which could only be done in paint, as well as enjoy the subject of the painting.

away we Go

I am full of body rust
Soon to turn to dust

I will not complain
Because it is the game

To day I must play
Doing Gods way
When young
I saw the Devil's work
And was an atheist
When I was middle aged
And partial sighted
I was an Agnostic
Now old and blind
I have Faith in God


Love Melts Stone

When I am all alone
My heart is like stone

Then I do remenber
We meet in December

The does stone melt
For love we truly felt

Where ever we will go
This is what we will know

Mary and her Art

love tigers. They are such clever, playful cats! This one is a mini (4 x 1.75") done on crescent watercolor board. I think it's time to give my eyes a break now and work on a larger piece!

The ART OF STARTING OVER click on title
"It's never too late, or in my case too early, to be whoever you want to be. There's no time limit. Start whenever you want. You can change or stay the same. There are no rules to this thing. We can make the best or worst of it.I hope you make the best of it.I hope you see things that startle you.I hope you feel things you never felt before.I hope you meet peoplewho have a different point of view.I hope you live a life you're proud of,and if you're not,I hope you have the courageto start all over again." Lines from the screenplay by Erin Roth-"Benjamin Button"
