Lord, guide my path during the time in between.
That the desires you have given me will be ignited into a fiery flame.
Help me to persevere in the face of those who wish to douse my passions with
fear, doubt and envy of a life that is lived with the consuming fire of your love!

This is a watercolor painting of an old dead snag set against a brilliant orange sunset and gathering dark thunder clouds. The limbs tell an ageless story of strength, perseverance and a lifetime of survival against the elements.

How we deal with life’s big
disappointments tell us who we truly are.
What do you do when the hopes and dreams you have,
are served up not as the fastball you were looking for
but a sweeping slow curve and the mighty swing
you take hits nothing but air?
Do you dust yourself off and try a little harder
and not ask for help?
Promise to never fail again, even if that means
never trying again?
Become cynical and blame others for your failings?
Downplay the importance of the dreams?
Never let them see you sweat, cry or the fear?
Realize that life is full of disappointments and the loss
of your dreams and hopes is the biggest disappointment.
The lack of any thing to look towards,
to live for, to love and to pursue is a life void
of any love, grace, passion or story to tell.
Live your dreams!

viewers mind to fill in the rest as a horse (or any object) will be perceived differently
by every person. The background of this picture was done using watercolors to
portray movement by the blurring lines within the background.
