MOONLIT MountainTOP, Shadowed VALLEY

May the one who dons this art be truly blessed --

May she grow like verdant bamboo -- speedily shooting ever UPwards, according to our Father's abundant grace and immeasurable riches.

Light --

May she blossom in the fullness of GOD's joy -- beautifying her surroundings as led by the indwelling Holy SPIRIT.

May the LORD be glorified in her mountaintop moments, as also in her shadowed valleys.

May our LORD JESUS reign supreme as the Sovereign Artist -- as He creates a unique masterpiece on the canvas of her life.

May the name of CHRIST be blessed and extolled forever and ever,
for His greatness is unsearchable -- His majesty always in all ways in glorious splendor --
for His wondrous works, awesome deeds, abundant goodness are to be greatly praised. (paraphrased from Psalm 145)

May the wearer of this "tract" be completed and perfected in GOD's supreme and everlasting love.

ANA's Birthday VERSE -- PROVERBS 1:8

Ana, my friend and co-worker has three grandchildren --



and Melani --
who are the precious apples of her eye.

KEDID's JOY -- Nehemiah 8:10

Do not sorrow for the joy of the LORD is your strength.
(Nehemiah 8:10b)

Happiness is fleeting, dependent upon circumstance...
but the joy of the LORD is like an effervescent
rainbowed bubble that just won't burst,

no matter the circumstance in life,
for true JOY is found only upon the ROCK of Ages.

His holy name is "J" --


True JOY is loving JESUS first --

The CHRIST rules surpreme in our affections.

Next -- loving others.
It truly is more blessed to give than to receive...
and to love others before ourselves.

Last -- loving yourself.

JESUS, Others, Yourself --

the JOY of loving this WAY fulfills the Law and Prophets.


He who does not love does not know GOD, for GOD is love. (1 John 4:8)

In this the love of GOD was manifested toward us, that GOD has sent His only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through Him. (1 John 4:9)

In this is love, not that we loved GOD, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins. (1 John 4:10)

Kathy's JAMES 2:18

What does it profit, my brethren, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can faith save him?

If a brother or sister is naked and destitute of daily food, and one of you says to them, "Depart in peace, be warmed and filled," but you do not give them the things which are needed for the body, what does it profit?

Thus also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead.
But someone will say, "You have faith, and I have works." Show me your faith without your works, and I will show you my faith by my works.

But do you want to know, O foolish man, that faith without works is dead? For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also. (James 2:14-18, 20, 26)

Kathy's JAMES 2:18... September 2 birthday gift.

This rLn original is a gift for my friend and co-worker -- Lupita. The one i gave her was a bit small (i guess my "artistic eye" was a bit askew), so i gave that one to my other friend and co-worker, Laura. (Update: when i brought the gift to work Tuesday, i discovered that Lupita was no longer employed, so i gave the shirt to Ana. Wednesday, she told me it was a bit small, so we decided to "re-regift" it again to Ariana!)

En el principio, ya existia El VERBO,
y El VERBO estaba con DIOS,
y El VERBO era DIOS.

In the beginning was The WORD,
and The WORD was with GOD,
and The WORD was GOD.

JOHN 1:1, front

JUAN 1:1, la espalda.

i pray the SPIRIT of GOD will make the wearer of this rLn tract tactilely and soulfully aware of the Truth of John 1:1.
