“The third-rate mind is only happy when it is thinking with the majority. The second-rate mind is only happy when it is thinking with the minority. The first-rate mind is only happy when it is thinking." [War With Honour, 1940]” ― A.A. Milne

I love this painting.  It came with passion and not thought.  I entitled it Second Thought because it grew out of a prior attempts to 'get it right'. So at the time I painted it in 2007, it was Second Thought.  The weave of painting and color is pretty unusual and I can honestly say this weave has not happened again. This is an Akhal-Teke horse. 

I want to share with you this morning that you are never a second thought to God.  He gives us 'second chances' and he will do it over and over again until we 'get it'.  Do not give up, know he is there with you as you breathe and move and live.  He is the power within you. He is the light within you. He is the joy and beauty within you.  He made you in His own image. 

"If someone slaps you on one cheek, turn to them the other also. If someone takes your coat, do not withhold your shirt from them." Luke 6:29
