Painting #1117  Oil on textured canvas  (24"x20")  Painted in March, 2010

"Wow!  The travel plans are now confirmed.  The tour begins April 21 and ends May 5, 2014.  My 77th birthday is April 23 and this trip is a birthday present to myself.  This is a first time trip to Europe for me during these 77 years and I Am so looking forward to the experience.  The tour is offered through the Florida Gulf Coast University/ Renaissance Academy and I feel most privileged to be part of it.

I used to always say "I will have to wait for my next life to go to Europe".  Now, look. . . . .  that is not so.  We cheat ourselves by putting on limits to the gifts God has for each of us.  Who can say what next wonderful gift is ours?"

FROM "THE DAILY WORD"                                   Wednesday, March 5, 2014

I am a new creation in Christ.
If I have been preoccupied with improving or transforming my image or outer appearance, I may feel an inner nudge to pay more attention to my spirit and soul. As I turn my attention inward, I remember that I am an expression of the Christ Spirit, which needs no alteration. My Christ Self—the highest expression of God in me—is all I will ever need to be.
As I let this awareness grow in me thought by thought, I begin to fully embrace its truth, and I am transformed from the inside out.
I honor the sacred perfection of the Christ in me. I am continually renewed. I am Spirit-filled!
So if anyone is in Christ, there is a new creation: everything old has passed away; see, everything has become new!—2 Corinthians 5:17
