Helios - Part 4
HELIOS - Part 4

Anyone who has attended a number of carnival glass auctions over a given period of time will attest to the fact that although fairly large amounts of this color were produced, an example of it is not evident in large collections of vintage carnival glass. The variety of shapes and patterns is selective. Reasonable quantities of the naturalistic designs, such as Pansy, Imperial's Grape, Heavy Grape, Lustre and Open Rose can be found when shopping antique malls. Designs in the geometric category are rarely seen in Helios. Having a predominately silver/gold iridescent sheen with little, if any, multicolored luster, Helios seems to be one of the least popular colors among today's collectors. However, we need to keep in mind that Imperial must have found it to be a substantial seller. Otherwise, some of the patterns would not have been brought forth into the period of reproductions in the 1960s -`70s timeframe. Perhaps it found a utilitarian purpose by the purchasers; thus many pieces were broken over the ensuing years?

Dean & Diane Fry - 3-09

Where do wars and fights come from among you?
Do they not come from your desires for pleasure that war in your members?
You lust and do not have. You murder and covet and cannot obtain.
You fight and war. Yet you do not have because you do not ask.
You ask and do not receive, because you ask amiss, that you may spend it on your pleasures.
Adulterers and adulteresses! Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God?
Whoever therefore wants to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God.
Or do you think that the Scripture says in vain, “The Spirit who dwells in us yearns jealously”?
But He gives more grace. Therefore He says: “God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble.”
Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you.
Draw near to God and He will draw near to you.
Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you double-minded.
Lament and mourn and weep! Let your laughter be turned to mourning and your joy to gloom.
Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and He will lift you up. (James 4:1-10)
