This was the 2nd painting that I did taking Kay Smith's "Recycling" workshop, yesterday. Two in one day! This is number 19 of my 30 Paintings in 30 Days Challenge. I can't believe the 30th day is fast approaching. I can't believe, either how this has gotten into my system. It's on my mental checklist. I'm thinking that I'll continue, even after the challenge is over. This was once a failed painting, and has been revived. I've never known a purple cow, but I do remember the days long ago, as a child; when I wouldn't drink milk unless it was from the purple cow. My mother would color the milk purple so that I would drink it. It reminds me too, of how every time I get together with an old friend of mine days gone by are rehashed. I know too, how so many times I rehash them in my old mind. I have to catch myself sometimes when I begin to regret wasting so much time. Time in which I wasn't living for the Lord. But gently, He brings me back in. Back in to His goodness and mercy, and reminds me that the plans he has for me are not behind, but ahead of me. The plans that are so good for me. An old life, failed and brought back to life. Amen.
