Striking Christmas painting


(h-t and thanks to Patrick for de-captioning it)

As I said, it isn't great art, but I find the thought moving.

Absolutely, moving indeed! Can I copy the picture and send it to others?

As far as I know, but I don't really know. Patrick's hosting it, he removed some captions from it. I don't know the original.

That is a very powerful thought. It does occur to me with my little ones from time to time, that Jesus was a tiny child like they are.

Here's a picture with a similar idea, Dan. It's stuck with me over the years:

Thanks, Chris. I hadn't seen that.

That link's not happy, though.

Folks can find the image HERE, and a write-up HERE.

Notice the Holy Spirit in the window. Now could such a shadow be cast if it were not for the Holy Spirit?

One of those things that really grabs your throat.

Thanks for posting.
