Sunrise Walk . . .
"If God had a refrigerator, your picture would be on it. If he had a wallet, your photo would be in it. He sends you flowers every spring and a sunrise every morning... Face it, Friend. He is crazy about you!" Max Lucado
So much to say on this subject... recognizing all the wonderful things... the amazing things we have in our lives to be thankful for and often we are worried about the things we do not have. God literally provides us all with so much beauty, good, people in our lives, and always His love and His peace and light and grace...
We seem to be overrun with Amazon, Itunes, video games and other junk out there, to take our eye off the ultimate love and grace of our Father. Give thanks today for what you do have. Did you see the morning sunrise? Are there flowers or trees around you in their cycle of winter waiting for spring? Do you have a special someone? A friend? Family?
This painting was painted for a man in Indiana that had lost his wife to cancer. He mourned her death for years after she died. They had built a new home right about the time she was diagnosed, and he commissioned this painting for the entry hall in the home. I had painted one similar years ago and she tried to buy it, but it was gone. She kept a printed image of it on her desk as it reminded her of she and her sister. This was one of the most precious commissions I have painted.
Luke 2:40 "And the child grew and became strong; he was filled with wisdom, and the grace of God was on him."
