My picture shows Abram standing on a rock looking up to God as He reveals His plans and promises for him.
This painting is a seascape with a boat going on a journey. I turn 55 years old this year. As I continue on in my life’s journey (symbolized by the boat), I know that there will be ups and downs (symbolized by the waves). However, I (outline of the lady in the sail) must always lean against the Cross (the mast), trusting that the Lord Jesus is my Shalom Navigator who goes before me and will be beside me. I have always been a type A person, wanting to be in control. I must, instead, completely place my hope and trust in Jesus.
I made this piece to remind us of God’s promise that His mercies and compassion are new every morning. The felt spring blossoms are meant to bring to mind a new season. God is faithful. After the flood, He promised that as long as the earth remains, the cycles would continue predictably. This is God’s grace towards His creation. The birds, small as they are, which sing at the dawn of each new day, are also under God’s care. Because God is so merciful, faithful and loving, we can place our trust and hope in Him!
