Weird Trees part 1

“…and all the trees of the field will clap their hands.”  Isaiah 55:12

My nephew LOVES this verse.  It’s one I’ve been teaching him.  We’ll be looking outside or playing outside and the trees will be swaying back and forth and he’ll SCREAM “trees clapping their hands!!!!” (he’s only 2 years old) and I’ll say, “that’s right Aidan, and who are they clapping their hands for?”  His reply has got to be sweetness to the ears of my Savior, because Aidan will scream at the top of his lungs “JESUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!” (he kind of shrieks at the end).  Yes, Aidan – they are clapping and praising the name of my sweet sweet Jesus.  Aidan doesn’t even realize that he has just joined in with their praise.  How precious to hear the name of Jesus come so joyfully off the lips of a 2 year old.  May that Name always come off Aidan’s lips in praise.  May he take that Name to the nations one day and make His Name famous.

Here is a strange painting of some trees.  It’s a different technique I was playing around with one day.  I love how the colors turned out.  I have another one like it I’ll post soon.
