Twilight Tree of Life Painting by Blenda Studio

You and I are the lambs of the Good Shepherd.

Wolves will snare at us on the serpentine roads of life, but the Good Shepherd will lead us into loving green pastures.

“How shall I make a return to the Lord for all the good he has done for me?”  –Psalm 116:12

My answer is simple:  I shall ‘take refuge in the Lord” always.  I may bleed from time to time with shock and longing, but I will always concede that the Lord is my Shepherd, and there is nothing that I shall lack.

With a new week ahead, may you experience “How lovely is your dwelling place, Lord, God of hosts.”  -Psalm 84


Oil Painting by Alexei von Jawlensky


At the beginning of the 20th century, the Fauvism style of art was led by Jawlensky, Kandinsky and peers, known for their uncommon colors which separated them from the previous Impressionists.  For sure, this invigorating still life painting perks ordinary and sometimes boring life.
