"It makes perfect sense", said a friend of mine. "Everything has an opposite. You are sad but your spirit is seeking the opposite emotion for balance's sake. Joy and sorrow, good and evil--opposites". Hmmmm...interesting thought, with what seems to be a bit of truth. But not for me. I believe God alone is truly good, and He has no opposite. Evil, or satan if you will, is not His opposite, and certainly not His equal. God is above all. His love conquers all. This I know to be true. My spirit did not seek Him. He sought me. He saw me as I was/am and loves me just the same. He sees me/us as we were intended to be--His plan--should we choose the life that's offered. His Spirit transcends everything, even this imperfect attempt to describe a love so immense that it cannot be contained.
When I look at this painting now, I remember my earthly dad, and cling to my heavenly one.
