When I am With Him

'It seems that a tranquil soul and a quiet spirit come to me even while I sleep.... 
I don't know what God has in store for me, but I feel so serene that it doesn't matter.  
What do I have to be afraid of when I am with Him?'

Brother Lawrence

  1. Nancy,

    I'd love to sleep peacefully like that child every night! "watch over me while I sleep so that I may rest in peace..."

  2. Ah, the peace that passes all understanding...beautiful painting. The details of the feet are amazing!

  3. Wish I had some of that!

  4. Thank you, all - yes, this little one certainly looks at peace, doesn't he? After a very long busy day, I might stare at this painting as I nod off to sleep tonight (which is now, technically, "this morning" !)
