Half of all I make on my art goes to our Harvest Church teens' mission trip to the streets of southern California this June -  the other half goes back into art supplies.





Easter display, in my foyer, with a very special Makoto Fujimura's Four Gospels Project, a gift given to me last year - and an absolute treasure. This book was not manufactured, it was crafted.  If you can possibly have one for yourself, you won't regret it!  It launched me into a Makoto Fujimura "craze" that continues to this day.  I devour everything he writes and paints.  I feel like I finally understand - and I love -  abstract art, when Fujimura puts it in context of Scripture.





I created my Easter display with Fujimura's Four Gospels, opened to one of my favorite pages with the account of the Resurrection on the left, and a painting on the right.  (I have to say, I was so overwhelmed by the lavish love of this gift last year, I couldn't even blog about it. I quietly treasured it up in my heart, a secret between me, God, and the giver of the gift...) I scattered my mercury glass birds all around, and even behind the large illuminated Bible, where you can't see them in the picture.  I also placed my four-sided Easter candleholder, depicting the Last Supper, the Crucifixion, the Pieta, and the Resurrection...


No deep thoughts today - not because I am not thinking them, but because they are beyond words, right at this moment.  My fingers don't want to type them yet, and my heart wants to linger longer over the things I hear God saying to me.

Ponder the power of the cross.
