Pierre-Auguste Renoir
Musee d'Orsay, Paris

Pierre-Auguste Renoir (February 25, 1841- December 3, 1919) was a leading painter in the development of the Impressionist style. As a celebrator of beauty, and especially feminine sensuality, it has been said that, "Renoir is the final representative of a tradition which runs directly from Rubens to Watteau." In 1919, Renoir visited the Louvre to see his paintings hanging with the old masters. He died in the village of Cagnes-sur-Mer, Provence-Alpes- Cote d' Azor, on December 3, 1919.

Focus not on yourself or you will become vain or bitter

Because of the things you have or do not have.

You may even develop the spirit of covetousness for the

things you do not have but others have.

Focus not on others or you may become judgmental

For you will never run out of things to criticize others

And God said, "judge not that you may not be judged"

(Matthew 7:1)

And, "with what measure you measure so shall it be

measured unto you" (Matthew 7:2)

Focus instead on God and we will realize our "smallness"

and "nothingness" before His throne,

And we will realize that "apart from Him we can do nothing."

"Let us fix our eyes on Jesus the author and perfecter of our faith"

(Hebrews 12:2a)

Focus on the countless blessings and divine mercy you

received from God and you will realize that you are

far, far better than millions of people around the world

who literally have nothing

The secret of happiness is focusing on the things God

has given us and being content with that,

Knowing that, "and my God will provide for all your needs

according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus"

(Philippians 4:19)

When we die, we will be leaving everything behind

And the beautiful body that we so adored will be

food for the worms.

And when we have not done anything in furtherance

of the kingdom of God, we will be facing the Lord

empty handed and we will rue the day that we

neglected to focus on Him.

"Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your

understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him and

He shall direct your paths" (Proverbs 3:5-6).

How I Miss Her

How I Miss Her

It's been five years since you have gone to work in America
We have to sacrifice for the future of the kids
In those five long years so many things have happened
in my life
I almost died two years ago because of severe scoliosis
in my lower back
Our house was swept by rampaging flash flood
destroying most of our belongings
I have to be the father and mother of the kids and watch
them grow to young adulthood
But in all those years I missed you terribly
When I was drowning in trials and problems
how I wished you were with me in those difficult times
I found myself calling your name at night, missing
you so much and I would cry myself to sleep
I may never see you again as I feel the pangs of death
hanging over my head
Whatever life has in store for us, just remember that I have
always love you and has always been faithful to you
As I constantly listen to your favorite song you used to sing
I can't help but cry because of the loneliness gnawing deep inside
I will never love again as much as I have loved you
That I promise you
