REJOICE and be GLAD! It is a beautiful day indeed! A new day brings hope and promise of a closer walk with Christ and His glory fulfilled. One of my daily devotions talked of being ready. Ready for what comes your way! How does anyone without Christ in their hearts make it through any day? I know I couldn't. The old adage of "if you don't feel close to God, guess who moved" is very true. If you have a single doubt in your heart, STOP, right now where you are and confess your sins and unbelief. Turn to HIM and BELIEVE! Ask Him into your heart and He will never leave you!

To comment on several:
Each day give God the praise for all the good in your life. Thank Him for the many blessings and show Him your love by spreading his message to everyone you meet. If like me, a quiet witness, then simply show others the way by your own quiet voice, smile, word of encouragement, sharing of blessings and talents. You will be blessed and be a blessing to others in ways you can never fathom.

I sometimes fail to follow His nudgings and that

- you have paint on most of your clothes
- you think about art most of the time
- you see art ideas in the simplest of things
- you buy things on sale or with a coupon even when you don't need it
- you think of art before sleep and when you wake
- you want to check out art stores everywhere you go, even if it's the same chain
- you never tire of browsing other artists' sites and blogs
- you visit museums and galleries over and over again
there are many more of these....respond with your own.....
Image is of a watercolor and crayon melt note card. I've really been into doing lots of art with crosses lately.

Got to the stop light. Stopped short to give him space, not wanting to follow him to Stanley (4 miles) and suddenly he started to roll back and right into my bumper before I could even shift into reverse.
In Matthew's car (old Camry), just roughed up bumper. I was okay (I thought but got up before the chickens with my back and sciatic nerve hurting into leg.) When the driver got out he was acting shaky and drunk. Younger man with him. Both claimed he had a bad clutch and wanted me to back up. I said "No, I'm calling the police. Dialed 911. Lincoln county answered. They decided to transfer me to Gaston. Stanley police responded.
I thought the old man was drunk. I told the police what happened. The old guy admitted he rolled back into me. They asked him how much he had been drinking. He said "Just one beer." They questioned him saying they could smell it on him. Tested him and asked about drugs. Both men appeared to have prescription drugs with them and the officers tried to determine what it was but was not completely sure without their ID book. Meanwhile, I had called Matthew while waiting for police. He came and took the movie back. Got to the store as they were locking up and told him he'd have to put it in the drop box. His watch and the clock inside said 9:59. They would not budge. I will take care of the late fee today. (But I went by this morning and it had been checked in with no late fee incurred.)
Officers said I could get a police report today. They said they had other reports of this guy that evening and I happened to be the one to help them get him. I said, "lucky me."
Of course the mind was going through all the what ifs and if onlys. I finally decided it was meant to happen this way. Maybe I saved him from killing someone. Oh, and the police report had errors with my phone number and drivers license number. Got to wait till Wednesday to get one now.
