‘If he works severely, he also works tenderly. His stockpiles of loyal love are immense. He takes no pleasure in making life hard, in throwing roadblocks in the way’ – Eugene Peterson. The Message version of Lamentations 3:32
‘…hope does not put us to shame…’ Romans 5:5 (ESV)
On the 17th of December 1927, while surfacing from tactical exercises along the ocean bed off Cape Cod (near Provincetown, Massachusetts), the USS S-4 submarine was accidentally rammed by the Coast Guard destroyer Paulding and sunk to the bottom.
While Jo was painting for this episode I noticed her colour palette on the table and took a photo of it. We both love how it came out and decided to not use the piece she had been working on and go with this. Jo was painting in acrylics and the colours all looked so vivid and beautiful on their own without being used to form an image. We felt it represented a lot of life for us. We work so hard to make something when actually God is delighted in the colours of our lives. It is in the mess that we find the masterpiece. The journey is where the beauty lies. You are loved.
