This painting is dedicated to our beautiful baby granddaughter Nora Jo Self. She blessed our lives for almost 7 hours, and we miss her deeply. As we mourn her gentle little life, we weep in a dark place. Thick Darkness expresses what my soul feels. A weight of sadness is present, and I am aware of God’s comforting blanket of love. In the shadow of His wings I am sheltered and tenderly loved, even as I sorrow the loss of my sweet baby granddaughter. My prayer dear Lord is for Your mercy to cover us and guide us through this dark time. Darkness is light to You, and only You know the way through.
