Why must people kneel to pray?
“Why must people kneel down to pray? If I really wanted to pray I’ll tell you what I'd do. I'd go out into a great big field all alone or in the deep, deep woods and I'd look up into the sky—up—up—up—into that lovely blue sky that looks as if there was no end to its blueness. And then I'd just feel a prayer.” LM Montgomery . Ann of Green Gables
It is late Sunday that I am blogging. I should have done it this morning but Terry and I were setting up a big paint in the studio.... three 30 x 60 x 1.5 inch canvas with the intent to carry the design across. My easel will not hold 90 inches, but I may start looking for one that does. I have been on my feet for 10 hours painting today. God has seen to my every need as I painted. I even found missing paints I needed. I ran out of others, but tomorrow is another day. I have not used this much paint in the past year. Time for an order from Jerry's Artarama.
The situation that stunned us last week, is totally in the past. The Lord stepped in and surrounded me with things to divert my mind into a positive place, letting go of any dismay or surprise that caught us off guard. That 'thing' I have prayed about for almost 2 years... has been answered. I may think about sharing it all in my newsletter. I will work on getting it out this week. One more day on the big paint and I can catch up in the studio.
Wishing you the best ahead this week.
I smiled at the verse of the day. It is my confirmation verse.
"Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight." Proverbs 3:5-6
