| The Valley of The Shadow of Death
by Joseph Noel Paton
This rendering speaks volumes to me
without a single written word.
Today I am THANKFUL to God for enabling many with various abilities with which they can express uniquely their faith and minister to others in this way. God is a creative God and His many beautiful attributes can be reflected through so many mediums. I am a lover of Words. I am not a great artist, but I so appreciate a person’s ability to create a beautiful piece of art. I am a big fan of religious art because I catch glimpses of God’s beauty and expression at different times with this form. Sometimes a piece of art can portray perfectly that which words strive to capture. God himself is the author of all Creation and the giver of gifts, talents and abilities. What a gift to be able to share our gifts, abilities, and talents for His glory!
I wanted to share this picture which I found many years ago in a small art book. I have held onto the cut out for years but it has been missing in the piles of papers until recently. Remember the post I did for my Grandmother’s Birthday this past Saturday? Well as I searched through the old pictures, I came across it once more to my great joy.
I felt as though God just put it in my hands again as a special reminder of His love on my Gram’s birthday! I was overjoyed, since I could not remember the artist or the name of the picture, even to Google it. I knew it was famous enough. Well, now I have it and am sharing it with the Blogosphere in hopes that you may also be reminded of a piece of art (jewelery, picture etc.) which is special to you and so perfectly captures your love for the Lord or your special relationship with Him.
