This is from one of my all time favorite images. A few years ago we spent the 'off season' living on the beach in Hull, MA, and I was going through a pretty difficult time in my life. I would walk the beach every day and ask God for help and strength. One day I was feeling particularly low, and alone, and I asked for a sign (you know how you do that when you're feeling desperate?) that I was NOT alone and that He/She was going to stick with me. and I looked up and I swear there was a perfect heart shape breaking through the clouds. I said to myself "That's a pretty great 'sign'!" and snapped the photo, because no one would believe me. Periodically I re-paint it. The original, large size painting went to a friend who has a very large burden to bear in this life.
