I began working on this painting at the beginning of the week, but as of yesterday it didn’t feel “done”. So, I decided to set it up against the wall and just look at it to see what I could see. I would glance at it every time I walked through my “studio/kitchen” and every time I did, I was reminded of the beautiful stained glass windows at our church.
Being pushed for time yesterday, I left the painting untouched and went to church to teach bible study and then attend choir practice. To my delight, our practice was held in our sanctuary and I kept noticing the stained glass. “Yep”, I thought…”my painting reminds me of the glass”.
During choir practice, our worship pastor, Zach Young, announced that every Tuesday during May, the sanctuary will be open for prayer. As I listened to him speak of the reasons why we were being called to prayer, I thought of all the prayers that might be prayed during this time.
I also thought of all the people that would pray the prayers: different ages, different hair colors, different voices, different personalities, different everything…just like those beautiful pieces of stained glass. Each set into place by an artist, just as it pleased him/her to create something beautiful to remind us of our Heavenly Father and His Church.
The connection was then made…my painting is a representation of the people that will enter our sanctuary and the prayers that will be prayed there. Each unique, each beautiful, each held close to the heart of God.
