“I am fond of pigs. Dogs look up to us. Cats look down on us. Pigs treat us as equals.” ― Winston S. Churchill

There is so much going on inside of our home I am not sure how to share it. I started this wonderful bible study called The Armor of God.  It is by Priscilla Shirer.  The days are different, our thoughts are focused and I am hoping we can keep these changes in our lives. I have not been this relaxed since college days.  I am just on the beginning edges of realizing how to let go and really let God.  I am sure we will be tested along the way, but for right now it is like wading into the water and not being afraid of the deep.  We are able to enjoy the moment, the day and the feeling of not worrying. 

It is hard to just PUT this out there, but for the next six weeks I am doing the course each day and it was even hard to paint today, but I did.  It is after six and I am eager to finish up my blog for tomorrow and get back in His Word.

I have to share the piglets with you.  This is painted for a friend that lives in the mid-west, the great state of Illinois. Yes, he raises pigs among other things. He has a pretty large farm.  This is going to hang in his office.  It was really fun taking a break from horses and getting to paint these little babies. I worked up about four sketches before I decided on which on. I had actually seen a photo somewhere of piglets under the other piglets!  So I had to include one in the painting.

 "Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes." Ephesians 6:10-11
