A Moment in Time...Something is crawling through the air.... and I do not want to touch it. Makes you say 'HUH?' 

Sometimes I just sit and meditate and ask 'Why' because I do not get what is happening at that moment.  It could be a painting conflict, a personal conflict, an untimely conflict; it could be anything unexpected that makes you think, Why?

For the past two weeks I have battled an allergic reaction to dust and dust mite residue in one of the rooms Terry was storing model boxes in. He had opened up and emptied the room into two other rooms upstairs, spreading the "joy".  You can compound that with the extra cold temps we had a few weeks ago where it hovered around 25-32 for about 10 days and our central heat ran non stop. So add in now low low humidity in the house, a feasting place for dust and dust mites. Humidity levels are running at 30%.  And we both wondered why we kept getting sinus headaches?

Over the next month the carpet will be removed from the game room, the media room and the three upstairs bedrooms.  The wood flooring has been ordered and Terry will install it.  We are investigating humidifiers debating putting one in the main system or just getting two of them, one upstairs and one downstairs.  The precious balance is the second fact that I am very allergic to mold and mildew.  

Somewhere has to be a safe place in the middle of it all.  So my meditation has been on God to stay centered. My prayer has been to be well for the upcoming birth of our grand-daughter.  But I cannot worry about any of this.  We can only use the knowledge we have to work forward to remedy the situation for this day and hopefully resolve the issues. 

Matthew 6 has a wonderful section on DO NOT WORRY.   Remember this and look it up.  Matthew 6:25-34.   I have only this day, today. I have only this moment right now.  Worry about what is to come is wasted time.  Meanwhile I am anxious to get back to my easel. 


Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.  Matthew 6:34
