Day 22 - Wood - This may just be a simple wood box made into a lamp but to me it’s a symbol of remembrance - Raising boys is hard work. The first tools that a little boy has are his toys. They teach him responsibility, patience, and they help him have big dreams. As they grow, their toys change and their character builds. Like bringing the beauty out of wood, it takes sawing, chiseling, a rough piece of sandpaper and a coat of varnish. And the work of building a man is a slow labor of love - but so worth it! ❤️ “Being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.” Philippians 1:6 @thenester #mycozyfallhome#MyCozyRetreat
The sermon on the mount, wherein Christ introduces the higher law. Appropriately, he stands on higher ground while those below him are just beginning to reach up.
A note on the artist: Christian Rohlfs began painting as a teenager while recovering from an infection that would eventually lead to the amputation of his leg. His career was slow, but began picking up when he was 60: he was accepted into the Prussian Academy of Arts and later his town opened an art museum in his honor. In 1937, Nazis condemned his work as degenerate, expelled him from the academy, and removed all his art from all public spaces. Rohlfs died in January of 1938.
Matthew 5:4 Blessed are they that mourn, for they shall be comforted.
