Country Roads

                                         Country Roads,  Parkway Series # 508   12 x 16  oil   $350.

I know I'm showing my age but I remember buying this album by John Denver when it first came out in the 70s.  Even before this I was in love with country roads.  Going home, leading home, taking me home, nostalgia, the smell of dirt, the orange clay with purple shadows, the sunshine on my shoulders....these things call me to another place and another time.  Looking back is fun but looking forward is even better.  One day these country roads will take me home, a home not of this world but one much more longed for!

Open Your Eyes

                                   Open Your Eyes       Parkway Series #507  35 x 35  oil   $1,750.

When the LORD opened the servant's eyes, he looked and saw the hills full of horses and chariots of fire surrounding Elisha.  When it looks like you are surrounded, remember you are surrounded by Him.   Pray that your eyes would be opened to His power and salvation!

C. S. Lewis once said...we have choices. Flowers do  not;  flowers die in the winter.  But we have the power to respond; we can choose to withstand the cold winds and go on to those "high mid-summer pomps" in which Our Savior already dwells and calls us, or to sink back into the cosmic winter of discontent and death.  It remains with us to follow or not.  Choices make all the difference.
