The Pit -Paint Party Friday

Because of lack of time this week, I am re-posting this drawing I created years ago.  This piece is a favorite and carries a lot of deep meaning for me, especially now because in this journey, I realize am just now emerging from the depths of depression. 

Corrie Ten Boom, survivor of the prison war camps of Nazi Germany wrote of her experiences in a book called The Hiding Place. She said, "There is no pit so deep that God is not deeper still."
The first time I read this amazing woman's book, I was profoundly moved. Confronting death, starvation, disease, and the worst kind of cruelty from her fellow human beings--in the face of absolute, abject hopelessness--Corrie Ten Boom's faith grew.
Remembering her wise words fills my heart with wonder and hope.

Thank you for dropping by, dear Friends.  Your visits make me smile--your comments are a delight to my heart.  Happy Paint Party Friday!

I've always been inspired by Corrie Ten Boom's life. This picture fits so well! I love the way all of the tears of her life seem to be pooled in this solitary drop ... given to God. Beautiful.

Excellent quote Beth and an important thing for us all to remember in these tough times! He is the light in our darkness, look to Him and your heart will find rest.

I think to undergo something as horrendous as that without faith would be unimaginable.
