Panel 888 ~ the reason why

Many many months ago, I had a challenge that I did an body every got the answer, so I figured I have about just enough time between food, sleep and the next thing my life calls me to do today. First lets take a quick look once again at Panel 888

Okay, so now we’ve seen it but what’s the deal right? The challenge was anybody who can tell me the story behind the name could have it for free. Nobody guessed so its time to reveal.
Jesus said “I am the truth”: the numeric value of “the truth” is 64 (8 x 8). The last book in the Bible is the Revelation of Jesus Christ which has exactly 888 Greek words. Eight persons were saved in the Ark at the great Noahic flood. God made a covenant with Abraham that every male Jewish child was to be circumcised on the eighth day of his life.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Either one of these answers would have been sufficiently correct.
Symbology and numerology

In Christian numerology, the number 888 represents Jesus, or sometimes more specifically Christ the Redeemer. This representation may be justified either through gematria, by counting the letter values of the Greek transliteration of Jesus’ name,or as an opposing value to 666, the number of the beast.

In Chinese numerology, 888 has a different meaning, triple fortune, a strengthening of the meaning of the digit 8. For this reason, addresses and phone numbers containing the digit sequence 888 are considered particularly lucky, and may command a premium because of it.
So there ya go, the meaning behind the words.

What to do….?

Each day as the dawn draws back i hear echoes of thoughts waft through my mind of things to come and things gone by.
I sit and ponder the gifts of the day, my breath, my heart, my love and compassion for all living things. What gifts we bring to the world and what we
ask in return from this perilous oh so vast expanse of space we occupy.

Today; ups,print store,car wash,studio, my favorite place the paint store. I don’t work in the sense of what 95% of you do as I’ve been on full time disability since 2/19/13 but as you know that freedom came at a great personal cost. I am burying this next bit deep in this wordy post because it is only for those who take the time to read all the words. I have a chance to occupy a studio space in my town it would give me the opportunity to bypass the local, ” arts and craft” galleries that abound in this town and open a real working studio. If anyone wishes to contribute to this happening email me personally for the details, as a painter I have only one gift to give which is my work in exchange for such a chance. Today brings great hope to our world for it is a new day, a new chance to be the great humans we were all born to be. Some of us writers of words for lovers and lost souls or painters of things yet seen by this world. All of us are equally important and gifted in each right. Never forget that. Who you are and what you bring to life by simply existing is a gift unique only unto yourself, something know one besides you has to give. So shine on, the star that you are and look no further than the mirror in front of you for the beauty and strength you seek for its been in you the entire time.
All my love, all my strength I give to you for I need it not on this day or any other.

Namaste

Home

Their are a thousand way to say it, in prose in rhythm and rhyme, from the heart or the head. Still just to be silly for one moment I think Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz said it best.
“Theirs no place like home”
eorum non est lunch.

ihr ist kein Platz wie zu Hause.

אין כמו בבית

자신의 집 같은 곳입니다

leur a aucun endroit comme la

loro non è posto come casa

их нет места, как дом
ikh net mesta, kak dom
Regardless of what language you speak it all means the same to the heart and soul. It’s great to be back after a day of rest (today) I will be back in the studio. I have some amazing images floating in my head to share with the world. I hope everyone received my message of kindness and gifts of love. Speak to all of you soon, I’m off to PT to see if they can get me moving again. Kind of cruel getting a PWP to sit,stand,walk for 14 hrs a day. As always be well, love and laugh.
