My second gift to a Priest I met recently who is very special and dear to me for the assistance he tirelessly gives to those who need him most.
Yes, that’s my daughter Jaymi in this painting. She had a photo in her collection of wonderful works that I felt was perfect for this painting and made it come to life in a way I didn’t expect.

I cried out to You Lord but where were You?
“I was here all along”
I cried out to You Lord but You didn’t hear me
“I heard every prayer”
I wept til I bled Lord, didn’t You see?
“I see everything”
There was only the wind to keep me company
“It was My breath”
I even looked for You in the desert
“I am everywhere you need Me”
You said ask and you shall receive
“I gave you My life”
Why have You abandoned me Lord?
“It may seem so but I have not”
I am alone, left to die
“Others may betray you but I never will”
Can You hear me?
Do You love me?
Why can’t I hear You Lord?
“Because you haven’t learned how to listen with your heart…but I love you…I love you so much…”
