  • Come Unto Me

    We are all aware of how painful, lonely, confusing, and restless life on earth can be. Often times when I'm alone with my thoughts, I find my heart seeking peace, rest, and renewing. I know I'm not alone in this feeling. When Jesus walked on earth, he saw right through our masks we put on each day that say "I'm fine". In this painting, we see Jesus as the loving shepherd. He has called the lambs out of the dark brush and briars and into the Son's light. As they draw closer, he reaches out to hold them. I hope when you view this painting, you can hear Jesus say to you "come unto me, you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest."

    The large tree to the right is one of the trees in the real Garden of Gethsemane, and the shadow of Jesus and a limb from the tree cast a shadow of the cross on the ground. They remind us of the pain and agony that the Lamb Of God endured, so that we don't have to. Each time you see this painting, remember to always live your life like the little lamb that has jumped into the strong loving arms of Jesus. It is my sincere hope that this painting blesses you, and brings peace and rest to your heart

  • Light of the World

    By way of virgin birth, God side stepped the curse of sin and entered the world as man was originally created to be - Connected to the father by His indwelling Spiritual Life - ETERNAL LIFE. This LIFE was to be the Light of Men (that governing force within men which could guide each man in the light.) He was the Lamb of God born to “take away the sin of the world” (that self powering force which drives all men born in Adam to live separate from God.) By His perfect and sinless life, he was an acceptable sacrifice to pay for all the sin of all mankind. So, now, who ever believes in Him, steps out of darkness and bondage and into freedom and light. In HIM is no darkness. In HIM is no sin or condemnation. In Him is perfection.

    Jesus came saying “Repent, for the Kingdom of Heaven is near.” When we admit our need for His Light and acknowledge our own sin and darkness, we can then receive HIS LIFE (that inner Spiritual connection to God) and become Sons, Heirs to the promise, and Children of Light. We step out of Darkness and into a Kingdom with no condemnation or judgment on us, and therefore a place where we should judge no man. This is a new place where the KING, Himself, took on the penalty and judgment for all our sin, and reigns down on us blessing as sons and daughters. By Faith alone, we are placed into the new kingdom - we are IN HIM - JESUS - THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD.
