Finished her today! Not exactly sure what I’m going to do with her, but the papercut version is hot on her heels! This Lady Liberty is taken from a motif on Edward Hicks’ Peaceable Kingdoms… I gave her a flag because I thought she needed one.
My mind keeps returning to the subject of peace… and it’s come up quite often in our conversations lately, both at home and with others. Peace on this earth is not easy to come by, but knowing that our heavenly Father is in charge of our lives gives us a peace beyond human reasoning. He can redeem any situation and use it for His glory. He can make beauty out of ashes. He can create something out of nothing. As humans, we’re looking at the bottom of a beautiful tapestry. From our side, we see a bunch of tangled threads and knots… but some day we’ll see eternity from God’s perspective and truly understand the concept of a Peaceable Kingdom.
Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you:
not as the world giveth, give I unto you.
Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.
~ John 14:27 ~
