“ If anyone has material possessions and sees his brother in need but has no pity on him, how can the love of God be in him? Dear children, let us not love with words or tongue but with actions and in truth.”

The Moon is Round

One of the joys of doing these paintings is getting to support amazima with the proceeds.
The other biggest joy is being able to be a part of so many special moments in people lives.
Some of the moments are joyous and others are very difficult.

I received this heart breaking email from one of my college friends:
"Hey girl!  I have a project in mind and thought of you.  A friend of ours lost their 2 1/2 year old son last week.  He passed away while he was sleeping during naptime.  It was unexpected - he was not sick.  The pastor shared a cool story during his funeral and I wanted to put the message on a canvas for the them. The main message of the story included these words, "The moon is round."  In short, implying that when we see only a half moon or a crescent, the moon is still round...the same with God.  When we feel like we see only a sliver of His love, He is still love...He is still full and round."
I suggested that we do a picture frame instead, so that they could put a sweet picture of him in it.
My heart continues to break for them. Please lift this family up in prayer. I can't imagine losing a child. I hope this picture frame is a reminder to the family of their precious boy and of God's sovereignty during difficult times.
