ART & POETRY BY KATHY BOECHER©
I’ve decided to pick up my paintbrush again. I haven’t done any painting for over a year and maybe I can release some of the tension by doing so. My husband is the artist, the teacher, the encourager. He inspires me to continue. So here’s my latest painting, conceived mostly from my memories of my grandparents’ farm. The peacefulness of that place reminds me of the way I feel under God’s protection. The world holds no promise, but in Him, I know that my future is secure.
I need to be wrapped in the protection of God’s holy wings.
Each pinion gently lays over me – cuddling and nurturing.
The softness and strength are overwhelming.
He breathes His presence upon me and gives me life.
He speaks and I am comforted.
His touch is gentle yet full of power and strength.
His steadfastness feeds me – nourishes my soul – guards me from all evil.
His love for me is unfailing. A love so great that it’s indescribable.
His tenderness is equal to His might.
I will never be alone as long as He is with me.
Be in my heart – my mind – my understanding.
Be with me in life so that I will know you fully when I meet you after death.
