Adonai - LORD!

JESUS -- SON of GOD...

YHWH - LORD, GOD...Jehovah!

In CHRIST JESUS -- Who is the SON of GOD, Who is ADONAI, Who is YHWH -- Grace, Joy, Love abound!

Beverly's Campground -- Outhouse... rLn-ed!

Beverly's -- WHERE...



At Beverly's Campground -- is WHERE PEACE HAPPENS in ACTUALITY. Surrounded as if cocooned in a green cave, all shades of green and colorFUL foliage are everywhere the camper looks -- even above, in the tree canopy...where orchids surprise and delight the sight. The ever-present sound of the waves lapping gently or crashing loudly on the beach entertain the ears. Beverly's is like an oasis of PEACE for all needing rejuvenation in an environment of true Fijian hospitality.
Left side completed first...the right looked so empty and forlorn that i came back a few weeks later to balance it out. All the art i've done at Beverly's are but my grateFUL vinaka vaka levu to Bill and Tila's wonderFUL hospitality since 2003, and for their generous friendship and compassionate, giving hearts -- treating me in all ways, always, like one of the family. GOD BLESS you, Tila!

Serenity -- IN CHRIST

Serenity -- the state of being serene, calm, peaceful, untroubled, composed...
Be anxious for NOthing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to GOD; and the peace of GOD which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through CHRIST JESUS. (Philippians 4:6-7)

IN CHRIST -- chosen...justified...

For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of GOD is eternal life IN CHRIST JESUS our LORD. (Romans 6:23) IN CHRIST, we are born again and utterly loved!

For all the promises of GOD in CHRIST are Yes, and in HIM Amen, to the glory of GOD through us. (2 Corinthians 1:20)

For GOD SO LOVED the world that He gave His ONE and ONLY Begotten SON that whoever believes IN CHRIST should not perish but have EVERlasting LIFE! (John 3:16)

Serenity -- IN CHRIST...

GOD grant me the serenity
to accept the things i cannot change;
Courage to change the things i can;
and wisdom to know the difference.
Living one day at a time;
Enjoying one moment at a time;
Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace;
Taking, as HE did, this sinful world as it is;
Not as i would have it;
Trusting that HE will make all things right
IF i surrender to HIS will;
That i may be reasonably happy in this life
and supremely happy with HIM
Forever in the next.
