This painting was way way too fun. Is that possible? Find joy in everything you do. I certainly did. I am trying to figure out how to do this on a large scale. I love it. I loved creating it. Started with a mess and continued to grow. The first one was the Snow Drift painting just before Christmas. Then I played with this one.  As soon as I can figure it out on larger canvas, I will do it!

Do you have your favorite jeans or slippers of Jamas? We each are surrounded by 'comfort' items in our lives. Mine is the heated mattress pad on our bed. OH MY... do I look forward to climbing into a warm bed when it is cold outside. What are your comfort items? Where do you feel at home and relaxed where you can block it all out. All of the tension and stress that has followed you around needs to be banished. How do you do it?

These are material comforts. That tiny babe we celebrated  a few days ago can actually give you even more comfort. I think of it coming from the other part of the Trinity, the Holy Spirit. Jesus told us  "I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you forever."  In my mind, the Holy Spirit is woven throughout my being. He is constant comfort and often sits waiting for me to realize that when I get over taxed and stressed. He can instantly calm my emotions and my fears if I turn to him. Be aware of the presence of the Spirit in you. Center on God and you will be filled with the Holy Spirit.

"But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things." John 14:26
