Never Again

by sandihester

Never again will they hunger; never again will they thirst.  The sun will not beat upon them, nor any scorching heat.  Revelation 7:16

Doesn’t she capture your heart?  She did mine.  I saw her in a World Vision magazine we got in the mail the other day.  I got the mail right before I started to cook dinner and the urge to paint her was to much to resist – when you’re inspired to paint something you can’t just let it pass because it might not come back.  This was another one of those paintings that flowed from the Spirit right out of my paint brush.  So I painted this little girl while cooking – that’s pretty good for me because I AM NOT a multitasker.  I can’t even talk on the phone and cook at the same time or something will set on fire.  I sat down today with my bible and asked the Lord to lead me to the perfect verse for her.  Poor Grady was napping while I flipped through my bible and when I found this verse I can’t remember what came out of my mouth, I just remember it was a little on the loud side because Grady was jolted awake from his nap :).  The verse captures the painting and the Spirit behind this painting perfectly.
