I Bought A Painting
While on vacation in Salt Lake, I entered the Deseret Book Store. This is quite a dangerous place for me. It has books, art and nick-knacks. Everything is good. Anyway, while strolling around the store, my eyes landed on this painting propped up against a stand on the floor. When my eyes saw this painting, my heart leaped in my chest. I soon found myself kneeling down looking at it. It was as if I was the only one in the room. It really spoke to my spirit.
To make a long story short, I bought it.
This painting gives me hope and peace. It makes me feel like there is hope for me to become the woman I want to be. I just need to reach out.
I was also able to talk to the artist who painted this. Her name is Sandy Gagan. She was so nice.
This painting is called Tabitha Arise. The story is in Acts 9:36-40. It is a beautiful story.
This painting lets me know that I can too arise and become a great woman as was Tabitha.
