Children Playing Cards Oil Painting by Artist, NORA KASTEN

"GO FISH"
Painting #145 of 1181      Oil on Linen   (26"x 38")          Painted in June, 1994 

"Of course, this isn't a "good" painting but I do like it because these children are my grandchildren, Kristin, Dustin and Jessica.  It was a Sunday afternoon at our home on Lamb Lake in Indiana.  Karl had taught them how to play "Go Fish" and often played cards with them.  The good man that he was, Karl secretly let each one "beat" him from time to time because it encouraged and brought them such joy.  I remember Kristin saying to Karl, after a particularly good game, "You are the bestest grandpa in the whole world".  What good memories!    Note little Jessica. . . . She's only two and a half years old and is happy, pretending she is playing too."

Freedom
Today, and every day, I celebrate my freedom!
Who is in charge of my freedom? I am! I have been given the gift of free will. I alone choose how I will live. I alone choose my attitude. I am free to choose the thoughts I think and to speak the words I wish to speak. I can choose to rest in the Silence, where I meet with Spirit and receive guidance. If ever I feel restricted or constrained, I affirm: The Spirit of the Lord is in me, and I am free!
If I am unhappy or feeling unfulfilled, I am free to make a new choice. I choose to let go of limiting thoughts. Instead, I imagine my highest good and my limitless possibilities. I choose how I spend my time and set priorities accordingly. I live the best life I can. Today, and every day, I celebrate my freedom!
Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.—2 Corinthians 3:17
