Jeremiah 31:8,9 Illustrated


Last night, as I was looking for good illustrations of Yehovah calling Israel to himself, leading them, the blind, lame, women with children and in labor. Or even pics of him protecting women in labor… And came up feeling rather empty handed.  So, today, while listening to teachings, I created what I will call a “concept art” or a ROUGH draft. Someday maybe I’ll get it painted, or maybe someone who sees this will take the idea and paint it. 😀

It needs to be painted on a canvas several feet longer, so that the perspective and size difference between the people is not pronounced, and looks more realistic.  It also needs a lot more people, some who aren’t lame, blind, with child or in labor, and the city needs to be larger, brighter, more inviting with GOLD streets, not silver.  But, there’s only so much I could fit well on 11 X 15.  😀  With paint, the facial features would have a lot more detail.   However, for pencil, and it being a concept art – to lay out a blueprint for what is in my mind, I’m happy with it.

Special nods to my Indian heritage reflected in the nursing mother, and inspiration drawn from my mom’s labor with my younger brother (beard added to her hubby due to having a hard time getting his chin defined well), and from my brother-in-love pushing my sister-in-love in her wheelchair, with my youngest walking alongside.  😀

Here are several pics – two with flash, two without…

About Beloved of YHWH

I am the “Head of Domestic Affairs” here on the mountain top. What that means is, I’m a stay-at home mom of 2 Boys, Small business owner, gardener, homemaker, blogger, planner, mediator, nurse, and so much more. My life took an unexpected and painful turn a couple of years ago, which is how I came to name my blog Shakam Boqer, but YHVH has been incredibly faithful to me, the boys and I are healing, and I am full of hope. I’m a follower of Yeshua, and my faith is an integral part of my life. Part of how He created me to reflect Him is to be a teller of the Story. I share my story, not as an exhibitionist, not for the attention it might receive, not for accolades or recognition, but, for His Glory – so that others, as they read, as they see how YHVH has led and loved me over the course of time, can be edified, lifted up, encouraged to Look to HIM, to Trust Him, to pursue Holy Wholeness with every fiber of their beings. Within this blog, I want community and conversation and interaction. I want to offer hope, and joy, and also thought provoking bits that make one look deeper into the heart of Elohim. This is my place to share my thoughts, wrestlings and just daily life. Please, please feel free to comment, discuss and even dissect & respectfully disagree. Be sure you check out Welcome & Disclaimers to get a general idea of the Blog, and what I am about: Feel free to contact me directly at: abigailmistyd at gmail dot com. Some blogs are password protected as I don't want pictures of my children pulled from my blog in a "image search" and posted elsewhere on the web. If I know you in person, or we have interacted online, and you'd like to read them, shoot me a note, tell me how I know you, and ask for the password. :)
