Illustration Friday - The Missing Piece


The word for this week is "Missing". It really hit home for me because some one is missing from my life and adjusting, coping, and working through the emotions has been quite the challenge.

A bride who is dressed in red so in love and ready to be loved. Yet her crown has fallen apart and her heart has wondered away. Torn between what is right and what she feels.

As I drew this I also thought about how it would feel to be void of God. To loose the connection to Christ and the death that would follow. Her expression is the same in both aspects. Things fall apart, our heart cries out in pain, we become numb, and expressionless. Yet the greatest light in the darkness is Christ. He will not leave, will not go back on His love, and He speaks only the Truth. God has a plan and purpose for all things, and it is through our circumstances that we develop our character for God and for eternity.

So if you're in the same boat with crashing waves and storms as I am, lift up and praise Him who will not forsake you and gives His unfailing, ever massive, amount of love to you. And may He bless you today.

Sara, I am so sorry for your pain....we all have felt it.....You have been such an inspiration to me, I hate to see you in so much distress. I knew something was wrong over a month ago when you stopped sending out news. I hope for only the best for you....and remember, when a door closes, a window is opening somewhere nearby. God has a plan! Lisa Evola

Your drawing is, once more, beautiful.
However, even if it's really nice, we can sense suffering...
This little heart which has been blown up... The hole in the fairy...
My dear Sara... I hope that He will help you trought this event...

Always a pleasure to read you...

Next time, I'll try to buy a next original drawing of yours on ebay (a one a little more hopefull), because I'm really a fan of yours...
My best friend had offered me un bookmark and a representation of the fairy Automn : he passed command to you.
I was so happy when I opened my present ! :)

Kiss,
Mélanie

PS : sorry for my poor and bad english ! I'm from France...

Dear Sara,
I thought about you when, yesterday evening, I went home. Indeed, on my way back at home, I usually listen to my Ipod, and my favorite artist : Chloë Agnew.
Do you know her ?
Her softness, and her love to God reminded me of you...
Here are 2 links which will show you how wonderful she is :
