This Nativity scene seemed to resonate with several people and I am so thankful for that. I am most thankful that He did come and continues to come to us and meet every need. My devotional this morning asked, "Have you been praying and believing for something that's taking longer than you thought? Many times people can miss God's best simply because they give up before the see their answer come. Don't let that be you! Be encouraged today, your answer is closer than you think. If it seems as though things are getting more difficult, remember, when the intensity heats up, that means you are closer to your victory. It always seems darkest just before the dawn appears."*
This particular version is painted for Joyce Riley, my friend. The canvas is a 10" x 10" gallery wrapped. Gallery wrapped canvases have increased depth on the sides which are painted and therefore do not require a frame unless you want to add one.
