TRUE FAUVISM

Oil Painting by Alexei von Jawlensky

HAIBUN

At the beginning of the 20th century, the Fauvism style of art was led by Jawlensky, Kandinsky and peers, known for their uncommon colors which separated them from the previous Impressionists.  For sure, this invigorating still life painting perks ordinary and sometimes boring life.

Breaking monotony

a savory table is set

Life exaggerated

WHITEWASHING

“Open the eyes of my heart, Lord, I want to see you…”

—-Refrain of a worship song

Whitewashing Winter

Needing a new pair of eyes

Whitewashing defeat at the expense of wickedness

Needing many hearts to change and repent

Soon the old order will be whitewashed

And the new will revive hearts that only God can do

Whitewashing away all the pain and deceit

From the White House to the Lighthouse of America

In the river of God’s Justice and Mercy

THERE IS GOOD IN EVERYONE

“Dear children, every day, you should ask for God’s blessing so that you can carry out your works.”

–Words from Mary at Medjugorje

My eyes saw a small news heading of a Chinese transport worker who in desperation took his life by drinking poison because the government had discovered that the GPS system on his truck was not connected to the government grid, fining him $300.00.  Surely, God had thought of him that day with mercy and a welcoming embrace, ending his oppressive life.

Doesn’t this sad story give all of us pause to do everything in our power to protect freedom that comes from God who blesses in abundance for every good work.

Your life is indeed a blessing.

HAIL! THE FREEDOM TO CHOOSE

Choosing to be happy every day, that is how I exercise my freedom to live excited.

You may be asking, “how can I live heaven on earth the way of this world?”

The answer is simple…Grow in faith bringing it up a notch above your hopes and dreams.  Take authority of where you live and who surrounds you.  Remember, Christ gave his apostles the power of the Holy Spirit to heal and expel demons.  Pray for the Spirit who dwells in you already to release the power of God to confront evil.  And don’t forget that the splendor of heaven rejoices each time someone chooses God over any evil.

I pray, you choose to be happy every day living in God’s love and joy, no matter the circumstances.  In this mindset, you will forever remain in his blessings.

Wishing you a splendid weekend.

SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT

A Bing Image Quote

Richard Buckminster “Bucky” Fuller was a great American architect, systems theorist, author, designer, inventor and futurist.

“Everything you’ve learned in school as ‘obvious” becomes less and less obvious as you begin to study the universe.  For example, there are no solids in the universe.  There’s not even a suggestion of a solid.  There are no absolute continuums.  There are no surfaces.  There are no straight lines.”

Good to know, yes?  What about this?

“If humanity does not opt for integrity we are through completely.  It is absolutely touch and go.  Each one of us could make THE difference.”

Something to think about, seriously!
