Like so many remnants of cultural debris left dangling from branches
brought after Katrina, Scrap House is a monument to nature's
unpredictable powers. Like all my work the pieces are made from common
materials and recycled elements, including the bark of the tree that was
fabricated by Travis Linde out of recycled oil drums.
There are a lot of things in life that we have little control over. We simply have to endure them and rebuild after the debris settles. That is why I find my faith so important. It is my anchor, my center point. The God of all creation supplies my every need. I don't need fame and fortune. I need comfort, strength, perseverance, compassion, and love. The Bible tells me that God is Love (I John 4:8). It also tells me that the fruit of the Spirit that lives within me is, love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control (Galatians 5:22). See, He supplies everything I need.
Have a wonderful week-end.
