The Holy Spirit

The same way that I had practiced 
drawing hands for two years,
I am now practicing drawing birds.
My brother Robert is terribly good
at drawing anything at all
so I asked him to make me samples of birds.
See below for some of his drawings.



I like watching birds.
It looks so easy to draw birds
but I find it's amazingly complex.
When I watch and try to draw birds, 
I am in awe of God's creativity and 
infinite capacity to create beauty.

In my journal this morning,
I attempted to draw a bird-
the Holy Spirit, actually.

"The Advocate, the HOLY SPIRIT
that the Father will send in My Name-
He will teach you EVERYTHING
and remind you of ALL 
I have told you." John 14:26

Isn't this promise reassuring?
God sent us an Advocate.
This means someone who pleads 
or argues our cause, and
speaks in favor of us.
He's our champion, our proponent,
our backer.

When Jesus was in the Upper Room,
He said, "The Father will give you another 
Advocate."

This means that Jesus was 
the first advocate,
and that the Holy Spirit's intervention
would in a sense be like Jesus'
being with us.
Isn't it great to know
that He is with us always?

Would you like to help me get my art
into the big screens in
Times Square, New York City?
and click on "Collect Me".
I just need 77 votes!
Thank you!


I love blog parties!
Won't you join us?


Blessings!

  2. I love birds. They signify freedom to me. I couldn't draw them though. Your brother's drawings are really good. And I always love to come by here and look at your art.

  5. You already have the talent, I guess more practice and guidance from the Lord, you can make those beautiful birds into creation too.
