Orange... for some reason orange is an enticing color for me. There are so many intense oranges and subtle oranges, but they really make a painting pop with life. Horse 90 is one of the bright ones in the herd.

I keep throwing these closeups at you so you can see the beauty of the paint. It truly is the Spirit of the Paint for me.  It is the salt and pepper of color that finishes a painting. 

We went to the Christmas Symphony yesterday. It was a large part of the family. Lady L and her parents, our youngest son Morgan and his wife Kelly...and of course Terry and I.  We fill 7 seats out of 8 in a box.  With Lady L being young we always go to the afternoon performance and it is always spectacular and yesterday was no exception!  Music, lights, action, dancers, stories and excitement.  Sitting in the Loge Boxes puts you in perfect view to see it all.  

God has the perfect spot watching over the birth of his son, Jesus.  Think about it... Music from the angels all around, Stars creating light and beauty, Shepherds, sheep, cattle, horses, town folks, a dirty stable, new parents and a little baby. Can't get much more exciting than that. It was a simple time but magnified and glorified in the heavens.  Glory to God in the Highest, Peace on Earth Good Will to Men.

Lady L is reminding me we have only two days to go to Christmas Eve. Three to Christmas day. Get ready... take in the joy and simplicity and do not feel to overwhelmed with all the stress around you.

"So Joseph also went up from the town of Nazareth in Galilee to Judea, to Bethlehem the town of David, because he belonged to the house and line of David. 5 He went there to register with Mary, who was pledged to be married to him and was expecting a child. 6While they were there, the time came for the baby to be born,  and she gave birth to her firstborn, a son. She wrapped him in cloths and placed him in a manger, because there was no guest room available for them." Luke 2: 4-7
