Remembering to begin again

Relying on God has to begin all over again every day as if nothing had yet been done..."
--from a letter "To Mrs. L." (50) C.S. Lewis

I love this quote. It is certainly true for me. I need to be reminded everyday and I need to begin again every day to rely on God. I love the hymn "The Old, Old Story" because it is about reminding and I do not want to ever get tired of being reminded to rely on God. He is good, and He is always intending us good. Why is it so easy to lose sight of this fact? Why am I so easily distracted from remembering it? I can remember to feed my cat everyday...and take my pills....and check my is truly a mystery to me why I cannot remember to rely on God everyday!

Some artwork to enjoy

Ihave been wanting to add some of my art for a while and I think I will try to do that now. My last try was a failure, but I will keep trying til I succeed. Not that I have been doing much of late, but I am thinking alot about what I want to do next. Birdiedoc had a great trip to Peru and took some wonderful pictures...some especially for me...and I really want to put them into a collage. Seems like the team had a very productive visit and hope to go back next year. I would like to join them so I want to work some on getting into shape for hiking with no oxygen. It will be hard but worth it in the end ,I think.

Ok, I am uploading some artwork that I have done in the last year. Most of this is for Art Journal round robin swaps, etc, but a few projects are just for fun. The tiny spiral book if full of Birdiedoc's grandmothers pictures. We don't know who these people are, but they were having lots of fun as opposed to the usual dour expressions of their era. Enjoy...
