“1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was with God in the beginning. 3 Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. 4 In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. 5 The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.”-John 1: 1-5
As we draw nearer to Easter our focus tends to shift towards how we will celebrate Easter day. We see the light and joy to come. While there is still darkness to journey through, it is nice to see the light breaking through. We are reminded that darkness has not overcome the light.
I used to be a nanny. One of the perks of my job was getting to play with the kids and be creative. Same perks as a stay at home mom…who knew?
This was a creation from my nanny days. I had not painted since I was in Mr. T’s (no, not that one) art class in elementary school, and I surprised myself. While I am not about to enter this in an art contest, as a self-described drawing deficient, I was quite pleased with my efforts. I’ll let you interpret for yourself. I’ve included some more angles of the painting. It was done as Easter art, so I thought it was time to dust it off and share it again.
Hope you enjoy it for what it is. (I do not plan on pursuing a career in art, so don’t ask or beg me to!)
Art (even poor excuses for art) is a great way to look into ourselves on our journey. Give it a shot!
