“Proverbs 31:25 “”Strength and honour are her clothing; and she shall rejoice in time to come.””
This little girl is Colombian, and I wanted to find God’s love for the Latino culture through painting this piece. She is a very special girl, and I have always loved her enthusiasm for life and for others. It was an interesting experience when we brought her to the photo shoot. She was a little nervous at first about someone she did not know personally hugging her, wouldn’t anyone? When she came home and her mother asked her how it went, she said that she wished it was her dad that was hugging her, because then she could feel a little more comfortable. Her mother saw a teaching opportunity, and asked her if she met Jesus in heaven tomorrow, would she know who e is? Will she have lived her life with love and compassion, so that when she does meet Him she will be comfortable in His presence? Will YOU be comfortable too?
Isaiah 41:10 “”Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.””
