Home from France by Artist, NORA KASTEN

Painting #1153  Oil on linen on board (20"x16")  Painted in March, 2011 Destroyed

"The French Countryside Tour came and is now over.  It was a first, going to Europe for me and I am so thankful.  Monet's Giverny, the impressionist museum, Musee` d'Orsay and the Louvre were what I treasured most.  Being able to see the Impressionist's paintings up close at the Musee` d'Orsay was like visiting dear, old friends.  What a wonderful experience!"
This is from Unity's "Daily Word"
I meet every challenge with strength.
Thursday, May 8, 2014
Strength enables me to persevere when I am challenged; yet I don’t need to endure alone. The presence of God strengthens me whenever I need energy to meet any adversity.
Just as I nourish my body at mealtimes to remain physically strong, I nourish my spiritual strength through prayer and meditation. Prayer reminds me that God and I are one, that everything I need is already available to me. I connect with God’s mighty presence by affirming: My resilience comes from Spirit within. My strength is the energy of God.
As I partner with God in prayer, I become stronger physically, mentally, and emotionally. I meet any challenge through the presence of God that strengthens me.
The Lord is my strength and my might, and he has become my salvation.–Exodus 15:2
