Black pants, white collars, black paper, metal steps, a handful of earth…have what in common? They are invisible; they bring something else to the surface while they disappear, holding their breath.
Mrs. McNeill and I chose quiet backgrounds, strong frameworks to carry the beauty we see God has given to our students. Color curved and curled on coal-black cardstock. Sound pigments of imagination sat in uniform, stood on metal stairs.
God chose to bless Mrs. McNeill and I with humble servants: strong-armed, selfless people who make themselves invisible to bless their students, their children. Thank you for all you did last Thursday and all you do daily to celebrate the art God has planted here in our soil.
May God continue to bless us with faith to see his selfless Son, the One who made Himself invisible to bring beauty from ashes, the One “…who for the JOY set before Him, endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God” (Hebrews 12:2).
Soli Deo Gloria!
