Second-Step HOME for Women

"If you decide that it's a bad thing to worship GOD, then choose a god you'd rather serve--and do it today. Choose one of the gods your ancestors worshiped from the country beyond The River, or one of the gods on whose land you're now living. As for me and my family, we'll worship GOD." (Joshua 24:15, Msg)

Front of a refurbished birdhouse, bought at my neighbor's yardsale for 25 cents.


This rLn original work -- a refurbished home for some needy bird -- is for Kathleen Garzon's Second-Step Home for Women. May these women's hearts be kindled with the JOY of the LORD JESUS as they walk a-new their second chance at Life 101.

"GOD chose things despised by the world, things counted as NOthing at all, and used them to bring to NOthing what the world considers important." (1 Corinthians 1:28, NLT)

In the Beginning GOD.

In the...


In the beginning was the WORD, and the WORD was with GOD, and the WORD was GOD. He was in the beginning with GOD. ALL things were made through Him, and without Him NOthing was made that was made. In Him was Life, and the Life was the Light of men. And the Light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it. (John 1:1-5, NKJV)

That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, concerning The WORD of Life -- the Life was manifested, and we have seen, and bear witness, and declare to you that eternal life which was with the Father and was manifested to us -- that which we have seen and heard we declare to you, that you may also have fellowship with us; and truly our fellowship is with the Father and with His Son JESUS CHRIST. (1 John 1:1-3)

From Walmart's $6.88 to rLn's ONE-and-ONLY

rLn's talent is a gift from the LORD - and i express His gift by proclaiming the Word of The WORD - "for i am not ashamed of the Good News about CHRIST. It is the POWER of GOD at work, saving EVERYone who believes" - those who entrust their lives to JESUS' LORDship. (Romans 1:16)

i believe GOD's Word NEVER comes back empty - it WILL accomplish WHATever GOD pleases. So rLn's art is but a tool for sowing the Word of The WORD. The LORD Himself will give the increase according to His good pleasure.

Romans 8:29 - "For GOD knew His people in advance, and He chose them to become like His Son, so that His Son would be the Firstborn among many brothers and sisters."

SAVED by GRACE - "GOD saved you by His GRACE when you believed. And you can't take credit for this; it is a GIFT from GOD." (Ephesians 2:8)

"In the beginning was The WORD, and The WORD was with GOD, and The WORD was GOD." (John 1:1)

"CHRIST is the visible image of the invisible GOD. For GOD in all His fullness was pleased to live in CHRIST, and through Him GOD reconciled everything to Himself." (Colossians 1:15,19,20)

"I AM the WAY, the TRUTH, and the LIFE. No one can come to the Father except through Me. Trust in GOD, and trust also in Me." (John 14:6,1)

"My thoughts are NOthing like your thoughts," says the LORD. "And My ways are far beyond ANYthing you could imagine. For just as the heavens are higher than the earth, so My ways are higher than your ways, and My thoughts higher than your thoughts. It is the same with My Word, I send it out, and it ALLways produces fruit. It will accomplish ALL I want it to, and it will prosper EVERYwhere I send it." (Isaiah 55:8,9,11)

JESUS CHRIST died and rose again for this very purpose - to be LORD both of the living and of the dead... "As surely as I live," says the LORD, "EVERY knee will bend to Me, and EVERY tongue will CONFESS and give PRAISE to GOD." (Romans 14:9,11)

"IF you confess with your mouth that JESUS is LORD and believe in your heart that GOD raised Him from the dead, you WILL be saved. For it is by BELIEVING in your HEART that you are made right with GOD, and it is by CONFESSING with your MOUTH that you are SAVED."
(Romans 10:9-10)

Blood-bought Slave of CHRIST JESUS

JESUS: "I AM the Way, the Truth, and the Life. No one can come to the Father except through Me." (John 14:6)

JESUS: "Father, if it is Your will, take this cup away from Me; nevertheless not my will, but Yours, be done." (Luke 22:42)

BLOOD-bought and free...
Do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy SPIRIT who is in you, whom you have from GOD, and you are not your own? For you were bought at a high price; therefore, glorify GOD in your body and in your spirit, which are GOD's. ((1 Corinthians 6:19-20)

Am i now trying to win the favor of people, or GOD? Or am i striving to please people? IF i were still trying to please people, i would not be a slave of CHRIST. (Galatians 1:10, HCSB)
Paul, a slave of GOD and an apostle of JESUS CHRIST. (Titus 1:1, HCSB)
Epaphras...a slave of CHRIST JESUS. (Colossians 4:12, HCSB)
James, a slave of GOD and of the LORD JESUS CHRIST. (James 1:1, HCSB)
Simeon Peter, a slave and an apostle of JESUS CHRIST. (2 Peter 1:1)
Jude, a slave of JESUS CHRIST and a brother of James. (Jude 1:1)
The revelation of JESUS CHRIST that GOD gave Him to show His slaves what must quickly take place. He sent it and signified it through His angel to His slave John. (Revelation 1:1, HCSB)

"Blood-bought and free slave of JESUS -- the WAY, the TRUTH, and the LIFE." (front)

"Blood-bought and free slave of JESUS -- the WAY, the TRUTH, and the LIFE." (back)

As for me, i will never boast about anything except the cross of our LORD JESUS CHRIST. The world has been crucified to me through the cross, and i to the world. (Galatians 6:14)
