I just love my friends. Garland at Eye and Mind has just completed this painting for me for a Christmas present. I am thrilled about it and moved, as I am by all of his profoundly sensitive and worshipful work.
This image reminds me that Advent is not yet over; that Christmas comes in truth to those who have waited and watched for the Master's arrival, having cleaned and kept His house, having tended first to the poor, having restored their relationships.
Thanks, T :)
