My gift!

My son, the artist painted this! I love still life. I can stare at this for hours. (yes, it is crooked on my wall. I have to fix that!) I love the simple and yet complexity of this painting. Right now I see the representation of my old life (the brown square,) old dirty bottles now standing in white on white –translation (for me-not the artist) is being clothed in new clothing and standing in the presence of God and Jesus, leaving the old stuff behind and becoming new. 

That probably sounds a bit disjointed, but it’s early in the morning and nothing comes out of mind quite right until noon. 

Thank you Andy, I love my gift.
