I finally finished this painting. It's been on my heart for a long time. Those of you that know me well, know that I use art as a way of working out what my heart is wrestling with. This one is called, 'Never Forgotten' and is dedicated to my first 3 babies who are with the Lord. During this season of my life, I was comforted in knowing that the Lord doesn't waste an opportunity to use pain or loss in the lives of those that seek Him. Although I felt just as barren and empty as this tree looks, I trusted the God was weaving something beautiful in my life under the surface that I could not see with my own eyes. Just days after I started this painting, I found out I was pregnant again with baby number 4. Today as I write this, I am just days away from this little guy joining our family and I couldn't be more thankful to God for his faithfulness to us. But I will never forget my other children and feel so blessed to of been chosen to be their mom and carry them for a short time. Heaven feels that much sweeter to me knowing that I will be reunited with them someday!
