"KARL, on the Porch"
Painting #344 Oil on linen on board (24"x 36") Painted October, 1996 Archived
(This painting really isn't as bad as it looks here but my photography skills were very limited in those days.)
"Karl had retired about six months before this painting and it was GOOD to have him home with me. That day was a beautiful Fall day there on Lamb Lake, Indiana and Karl was enjoying sitting out on the upper porch studying his financial reports. I Am Blessed with such Loving memories. Thank you, Karl."
I am one with Spirit, one with joy.
FROM UNITY'S "DAILY WORD" Sunday, June 29, 2014
Nothing surpasses the joy of Spirit; nothing is stronger than the indwelling Divine Presence.
Joy is always available, regardless of outer conditions, other people, or adverse circumstances. If I ever lose touch with inner joy, if I ever feel discouraged that life does not seem to be going my way, I simply bring myself back to center. I look within to find that joy has never left me. I am loved. I am strong. I am one with God in every way. My sense of joy returns as I allow my consciousness to rise to an awareness of Spirit’s unmovable presence and power.
Joy is as natural to me as breathing and smiling, because Spirit is with and within me at all times.
God, your God, has anointed you with the oil of gladness.—Hebrews 1:9
