I chose the story of Noah and the ark because it shows a promise from God that is true up till today! I also chose it because I love animals.
This artwork describes the new Jerusalem mentioned in the book of Revelation. The river was flowing from the throne of God and on each side of the river stood the tree of life yielding twelve different fruits every month. The city walls were decorated with twelve precious stones and with twelve gates remembering the sons of Jacob.
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!
In the Old Testament, God describes the Promised Land as “a land flowing with milk and honey” (Exod. 3:8; Num. 14:8; Deut. 31:20; Ezk. 20:15), which is a beautiful graphical way of highlighting the agricultural richness of the land. God brought His people out of slavery in Egypt to a prosperous land of freedom, blessing and the knowledge of the Lord.
