"Threshold to Joy", 6x6, oil on gessoboard by Maryanne Jacobsen

Sold "Threshold to Joy", 6x6, oil on gessoboard by Maryanne Jacobsen

Happiness are friends, hugs and a sunny doorway. And if that doorway includes flowers and vines that's icing on the cake!

I think it would be hard to believe that such a sunny doorway would lead anywhere but to a home filled with joy and gladness. How often do we stop and thank the Lord for his goodness, mercy and blessings?

I try to do it on a daily basis, but inevitably I know it's not enough.

I found this lovely poem on this site, and I loved it! It reminded me of my many friends, and of the friends I have made who collect my art and have told me over and over how my art fills their home with light and love. I give thanks for all these people as I step each day over my threshold to joy.

A Simple Thank You, My Friend

Into the dim lit, bare walls of my world,
You entered, bringing light and life to me,
The vivid colors, painted with a swirl
Of wit and charm, of personality,
With tender care, you added comfort, warmth,
And images that line the now bright walls.
I look upon them fondly, bringing forth
A thankfulness that you walk in these halls
With me; our friendship has become a part
Of my world now; it has its special place,
Within my being, life, and in my heart,
Your name hangs right beside your smiling face.
Remembering just how drab these walls had been,
I have to thank you for the light, my friend.
- Warmhrt

I don't know who warmheart is, but thank-you for this lovely poem!
