Resting Child



By Ramone - March 18, 2008

I drew, inked and watered this as we were going to Kyoto two days before my son Timothy's first birthday. We had decided to just take a day off and go somewhere nice, and we had a wonderful day. In the morning as we left on the train, he took a nap while leaning back on my wife Yoko.

He is beautiful. And cute. And I couldn't resist!

It reminds me of how we are "well-pleasing" to our Father who adores us -- how we are well-pleasing to Him even when we sleep! Even when we are at rest, doing nothing, we are well-pleasing in His eyes. He adores us. He loves us. His thoughts of us outnumber the grains of sands in the seas.

The watery look of this picture (from the water I put over the ink) makes me think of His love for us -- how my eyes water with tears now as I realize, as He tells me that He sees us the same way, through watery eyes of love. Oh God, I am crying so hard! Thank You, thank You for Your love. Thank You for loving us so much.
The Lord your God is with you;
He is mighty to save.
He will take great delight in you;
He will quiet you with His love,
He will rejoice over you with singing.

- Zephaniah 3:17
