Moving Mountains

Mountains know secrets 
we need to learn. 
That it might take time, it might be hard, but if you just hold on long enough, 
you will find the strength to rise up.     
Tyler Knott

Once in a while you hear a story that is so inspiring it increases your faith.  A bit of heaven meets  earth, an amazing story of forgiveness by mortal enemies after the Rwandan genocide.

 This story is that, and when I saw them praying I knew I had to include them in my series of paintings.  

Painting number two is a story I found from Kari Costanza and the photography is from Jon Warren/World Vision.  

Andrew and Callixte truly hated each other and now they are working together and they are not only reconciled but are the best of friends.   Andrew's daughter is going to marry Callixte's son.    Full story here... Patricia Heaton on ET 

Living proof that God can

restore anything and

anybody, His redemptive power

 knows no end. 

“For truly, I say to you, if you have faith like a grain of mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move, and nothing will be impossible for you.” Matt 17:20

I was listening to ELO at the time.;)  🎝
“How glorious a greeting the sun gives the mountains!”
John Muir

Witnesses of hope and reconciliation,

they are the best of friends now and

when they pray together, they move

Donate to my art project to help feed the hungry, some of the greatest needs are with displaced families and children from fleeing conflict, war or famine. 

Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good;
    his love endures forever.
 Let the redeemed of the Lord tell their story
    those he redeemed from the hand of the foe,
 those he gathered from the lands,
    from east and west, from north and south.
 Some wandered in desert wastelands,
    finding no way to a city where they could settle.
 They were hungry and thirsty,
    and their lives ebbed away.
 Then they cried out to the Lord in their trouble,
    and he delivered them from their distress.
 He led them by a straight way
    to a city where they could settle.
 Let them give thanks to the Lord for his unfailing love
    and his wonderful deeds for mankind,
 for he satisfies the thirsty
    and fills the hungry with good things. 
Psalm 107:1-7
