A message from the artist:
After weeks of pondering what this portrait of Christ means to me, I have thought about the incredible blessings I have had in my life especially over the last few months. Before my husband and I made a major move we had an amazing summer full of adventures and memories that will last forever. During our last few months in Utah, we wanted to soak up everything good that Utah had provided for us. We went on hikes, ATV rides, watched sunsets, and enjoyed time with our amazing friends and family.
As soon as we got to Texas I looked back on the photos I had from the last few months and I stood back in awe of the people I was so blessed to have in my life. I stood in awe of the mountains and wildflowers and valleys and all things good. As I marveled at my summer experiences I couldn't get this hymn out of my mind, " I stand all amazed at the love Jesus offers me, Confused at the grace that so fully he proffers me."
At this time I feel speechless that in a world of so much darkness and confusion I am continually amazed by His grace and love surrounding me. I am continually amazed by His creations, His grace, His love.
My friend Mikkele (@facelessbymikkele), recently painted a painting of sunflowers and shared this caption, "Until they are mature, Sunflowers follow the sun all day long. In the wind, the rain, and the dry weather, they still follow the sun. There is a lot going on in the world right now. It feels heavy to me. These little sunflowers taught me a lesson today." And I especially liked and resonated with this part, "No matter the uncertainty going on around us, there will always be a constant. He’s always there. We just have to look up."
Christ is always there, His grace is always there. He is our light through any dark tunnel or vigorous storm. As Mikkele said "We just have to look up."
