to commission a painting
When we create a piece of art together, that painting is deeply personal and unique to whoever it is intended for. Being so personal, that will mean different things to different people. For some, it will represent all that 'a life full to the brim and flowing over' will look like in their eyes: the best that life can be - their hopes and dreams, all that is precious and beautiful in their life. So for one lady, having her nails manicured and a sit down meal with her family was a symbol of that full life - because our Father cares about the smallest things. For another, it might be the visual celebration of the nation restored to God or indeed, Jesus' return as king. It might be a verse that changed their life or carried them through the years; just one image or a montage of many.
More than being just a painting on their wall, this piece of art will give them something wonderful and uplifting to reflect upon, day by day. It will be something to encourage them and at times challenge them - as a reminder of that abundant life the Father wants for them. It will be something to inspire them.
