The Lord is near to the brokenhearted . . .

Bonnie T.  Barry

Sunset, United States

Artist's Description

I thought about this verse from Psalm 34, “The Lord is near to the brokenhearted and the crushed in spirit He saves,” when I noticed the camellias Mama had cut for me fell from the vase during the night, leaving scattered heart-shaped petals on my kitchen counter. I hadn’t really noticed the shape of the petals until Charlotte Ottilo commented about them in previous photos I had posted.

I would like to send special thoughts and prayers out to Bianca Thomas whose husband is critically ill and to reassure her that God is near her in her brokenheartedness and that He will guard and help her and her husband during these crushing times.

(Postscript: the black speckly background in this photo is not my kitchen countertop; it’s a black sweater with metallic threads in it; I kind of like the starry night effect it lends to the picture).
