Carrying Us Home

Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. - Matthew 11:28  

He healeth the broken in heart, and bindeth up their wounds.- Psalm 147:3  

Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.- Isaiah 41:10  

Story Behind the Art:

In so many ways ALL of us are like children. We are so fearful, so weak, so quick to forget why we're here. We fall and bruise in our lives and don't truly get back up until our Savior picks us up. We trip and stumble until we realize our Redeemer can carry us. Will life always be easy in the Lord’s care? Absolutely not. We are not here to vacation but to be tried, stretched and grown. For this reason I did not want the child to look overly happy or excited because we all know life isn't always that way. I wanted him to look as though he were at peace with The One carrying him. The atonement of Christ can and must carry us back to our heavenly home! - Dan Wilson
