Love

This room in our gallery contains artwork depicting love.  Please check back from time to time, as we continue to add new artwork to this room, as well as other rooms in our galleries. You may click on the thumbnail images below to enlarge them.



 "Heavenly Companions"

"Husbands, love your wives as Christ loved the church and gave his life for it." (Eph 5:25)


"With All Your Heart"
-- C.V., girl, age 15
"Love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength." (Deu 6:5)
 

 
"Blow on My Garden"
-- C.V., girl, age 15

-- C.V., girl, age 16
"I am a rose of Sharon, a lily growing in the valleys." (Son 2:1)


"Love Like Fire"
-- C.V., girl, age 15
"Wear me as a signet ring on your heart, as a ring on your hand. Love is as overpowering as death. Devotion is as unyielding as the grave. Love's flames are flames of fire, flames that come from the LORD. Raging water cannot extinguish love, and rivers will never wash it away. If a man exchanged all his family's wealth for love, people would utterly despise him." (Son 8:6-7)

"Midnight Vigil"

"On my bed night after night I sought him Whom my soul loves; I sought him but did not find him. 'I must arise now and go about the city; In the streets and in the squares I must seek him whom my soul loves.' I sought him but did not find him." (Son 3:1-2)



"His Little Lambs"
-- C.V., girl, age 16

""My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me..." (Joh 10:27)

 "House by the Lake"
-- C.V., girl, age 17

"'If it is disagreeable in your sight to serve the LORD, choose for yourselves today whom you will serve: whether the gods which your fathers served which were beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorites in whose land you are living; but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.'" (Jos 24:15)

Author's note:  Sometimes imperfections may be retouched or removed using software, but usually the art is presented here without any modification. You can find more art in this blog's directories for the Young Ladies of God Gallery and the Children of God Gallery.  I also recommend visiting my children's blog, Verses to the King, where you will also find beautiful poetry they have written for the glory of God. You can access my complete blog directory at "Writing for the Master."

This blog is managed and maintained by my fifteen-year old daughter, C.V., under my training, direction, and guidance with a bit of assistance occasionally.  She collaborates with her siblings (her fellow artists), then she creates digital representations of the art – through scanning or photography, crops it, organizes it, uploads it, creates the gallery rooms, organizes them, adds accompanying text (including Scriptures that she and her siblings have selected for their art), and publishes them to the web.  She is learning responsibility, teamwork, administrative skills, and computer skills -- including some HTML programming, a bit of graphic design, photography, website development, and website publishing.  In addition, this is a ministry that allows our children to lovingly share their artistic talents and the Scriptures with others, bringing glory to God through our Lord Jesus Christ.  Most importantly it leads them to meditate more on the Word of God.

Do You Want to Know Him?
If you want to know Jesus personally, you can. It all begins when you repent and believe in Jesus.  Do you know what God's Word, the Bible says?

“Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of God, and saying, ‘The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent and believe in the gospel.’” (Mar 1:14b-15).  He preached that we must repent and believe.

Please see my explanation of this in my post called "Do You Want to Know Jesus?"
