Show & Tell Friday: Crucifixion Painting
Last week, I shared with you all Sophia's Baptismal Certificate. At the church she was baptized at, we had a fellow-congregant, Scott, who was an artist. He would often paint during services.
The day that Sophia was baptized, we were devastated to discover that, though we had recharged the video camera the night before, something had gone wrong, and the camera had no power! We concentrated on the significance of the day and reminded ourselves that we wouldn't need a video to remember that special occassion. On that day, Scott painted the picture I share with you today.
After the service, we approached our pastor and purchased the painting, for a donation to the church, and today it hangs in our front entryway: a reminder not only of that special day in the life of our first-born child, but a remembrance and a testament to the love of God's first-born and only Son for us that makes all our Baptisms possible.
