Revee From Country Roads hostesses Memories Monday. Please stop by for some great memories.
When I was a little girl around the age of 6 this picture hung in our dining room.
It is a charming painting of an older man in prayer before his meal. I remember always looking at the picture and enjoying it very much except when the lights were out. For some strange reason if I were in the living room and the lights were out, I felt afraid to look back in the dining room... as if something was watching me.
I look back now and still cannot for the life of me figure out why this lovely painting frightened me in the darkness.
My parents moved around so much after those years, I don't even know what happened to the painting. I have seen this image here and there throughout my life and now seeing it gives me peace. That peace is God looking over me, reminding me I don't have to fear, He has been there all along.
Thank you for sharing this memory with me... a memory I never shared before.
"Fear not, for I am with you: be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you , yes, I will help you. I will uphold you with My righteous right hand." Isa 41:10
When I fear my faith will fail, Christ will hold me fast: When the tempter would prevail, He will hold me fast.-Habershon
