And A Little Child Shall Lead Them

imageI will confess that watching the evening news tends to be depressing. Headlines like: “worst case of child abuse in history,” “officials caught in sexual abuse ,” “forest fires destroy hundreds of homes” can burn into my brain. One can get caught up in man’s inhumanity to man. And then out of nowhere I will see a little one  extend a helping hand to an old person, or observe how much delight  can be found in jumping in a mud puddle, and I realize that hope is born anew.  The little guy in Sunday school who can’t sit still but is always ready with a hug  and a kiss, the neighbor’s grandchild who wants to come and visit, these are the things that gives me hope. When I look for a subject to paint, I see strength and wisdom in the old, but joy, hope and love in the young. I hope you like AnaLin.
