Silent Night . Pop Art . Pure Justus Collection

“We know that God is everywhere; but certainly we feel His presence most when His works are on the grandest scale spread before us; and it is in the unclouded night-sky, where His worlds wheel their silent course, that we read clearest His infinitude, His omnipotence, His omnipresence.” Charlotte Bronte Jane Eyre

I truly forgot I had painted this one and I think it was because it sold immediately when I did paint it, so it did not hang around the studio very long. The quote from Charlotte Bronte speaks volumes to me.

Perhaps at night we are in a quieter frame of mind, not influenced by so much noise, movement and light. In the night the heavens carry the beauty and it pulls you away from this earth we inhabit in our journey here before Heaven.

What holds your attention? Where do you find God present in such magnificent glory?

“ But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.  That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong. “ 2 Corinthians 12:9-10
