It's then that I have to shake myself, look up, look around, see the good that's here. Look at the brilliant green of the leaves, walk along the creek and feel the coolness from water which has just
melted from alpine snowfields and listen to the birdsong. It's then that I have to be amazed at how soon the robins realize I've set the sprinkler. It's then that I'm reminded of my amazing daughters and their lives. It's then that I drink in the colors of the pencils and markers and boxes of inspiration in my studio or gaze in awe at the never ending beauty of the Bighorns.
And John 16:33 - These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world ..... means something very personal.
