Reposting Relentless

In honor of this holy week, I'm reposting my oil pastel and little poem underneath, inspired by the wonderful quote from Bill Crowder. I'm ever grateful for the oh so Good Friday, and the day the stone was rolled away. Happy Easter, everyone.


"Godly love endures beyond life's hurts by pulling us relentlessly toward the never-diminishing care of the Father."
Bill Crowder

I'm not eager for your wounds,
But I know they are faithful.
Putting self to death
And my heart full-blown will live again
Like a tulip in the doorway of your house.

We sang the hymn, "Lift High the Cross," on Sunday, and I'm always struck by the line: "Oh Lord, once lifted on that glorious tree..."

Glorious? I feel the same way about Good Friday--the day of ugliness and violence that was oh, so good in God's crazy, upside-down, paradoxical kingdom.

Love seeing your art. Always. Love. It.

Such beauty here.
Him.
His life.
His love.
Through you,
Your words,
Your works,
Your ways.
I love you, {dear J~Bee},
And miss you.
And I'm thinking of you
And praying, each day
"His {moment-by-moment}
Never-diminishing care" xo

So perfect,
Your poem, and painting.
So good of you to share,
Your heart
And the preciousness it holds.
