Portion of "SELF PORTRAIT" 2007
Painting #917 of 1181 paintings /Oil on Linen  (24"x20") Completed February, 2007

"No time to write this morning.  When I returned to the Ft. Myers Int'l Airport last evening from my Maine vacation, the battery in my car had died.  It's not two years old yet but AAA told me they see this often.  I'm headed out to the Lincoln dealership to have the battery replaced.

It was really hot waiting outside the car in the Long Term Parking lot for the AAA service man.  The wait was 45 minutes and I realized if I put the trunk lid up, I could sit on the back bumper in the shade and feel cooling breezes from time to time.  The first thing the nice man from AAA did after getting out of his truck was to hand me an ice cold bottle of water.  I am always Blessed."
The peace of God comforts me.

Even during the dark and stormy times of my life, God’s abundant peace is only a thought away. As I close my eyes to fear and confusion, I see the steady light of the Divine at my center. Just as the flame from a single candle dismisses darkness, the light of the Divine dissipates fear.
I am comforted by the divine inner light shining peace, power, and love within me. I affirm: God is my power; God is my strength; I am safe. Any temporary experience has only the power I give it. I choose not to empower adversity.
God in me is the strong comforting presence upon which I rely. I am comforted by the power and light of God within.

Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I fear no evil; for you are with me; your rod and your staff—they comfort me.—Psalm 23:4
