Your Great Name

My son, Kimo, who is a singer/songwriter here in Nashville  surprised me with this video. I am so proud of him and want to share it with you.  The surprise was that he put some of my paintings to one of my favorite worship songs.  He did a wonderful rendering of the song - love it so much.. Not all of the paintings are mine, but many are.

"The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and they will call Him Immanuel" - which means, "God with us." (Matt. 1:23 NIV)
Once I laid the sketch in on canvas,  even though just a charcoal sketch, I was so moved by the simplicity and love that showed through the image,. Maybe it is because I am a mother and I was feeling the love a mother has for her child.  Maybe it was because, although just a representation of Mary and our Lord Jesus at the most vulnerable time in His life - Mary must've been so overwhelmed with such emotion of being so blessed as to be chosen the mother of this wondrous child. That this innocent Babe was sent by our God to to be the sacrificial lamb for the cleansing of our sins, giving us a way to Him and everlasting life.

The second in my series of Women of the Bible.  Stay tuned for the next installment.
