Wednesday's Words on Thursday-- and one more painting.

This is my submission for the Virtual Paintout, which this month is located on Prince Edward Island of Canada.

Please visit Virtual Paintout to see other great paintings contributed to this blog.  I chose to do this painting of the cows because I thought it was so funny the way they were all turning very suspiciously to eye the car with the Google camera on top, as it passed.  If you don't know what I'm talking about, take a look at the link I gave above.


Last week my Wednesday Word was rather long.  So this week I will try to shorten it

"Depend on the Lord; trust Him and He will take care of you."   Psalm 37:5
As as long as I have been a committed Christian, the more I have learned to trust God.  There's a lot of things as well as people I don't trust in this world today, but I know I can trust the Lord.  Trusting a person means you have to know them personally and know that they keep their word.  You can trust a person when you know he only wants the best for you and that he has the ability to to take care of you.  
It's rather like a good marriage. A husband and wife have to trust one another, not just to be faithful, but to be the person he/she claims to be.  I have been married 50 years and I know my husband.  I have trusted him for fifty years, I can trust him for the rest.  I have been a Christian for 53 years and I have learned to know God and to trust Him.  He's not going to change.  He's given His word.  I know He will take care of me, even when things don't seem to be going well.  He didn't promise to take me out of this world and its evil, but He did promise to be with me, take care of me and lead me through it all until He takes me home to be with Him. That's Someone worth trusting. Just trust Him to do what He says He will do.

I love your painting. What an interesting challenge. I had to have a look, being the nosey person I am. I do like Google earth :-)
