archway #2

Here's the finished page! The scrawly writing is
intentionally illegible, but it's a medititation on Psalm
12:5-8, which reads (NLT) "The Lord replies, 'I have seen
violence done to the helpless, and have heard the groans of
the poor. Now I will rise up to rescue them, as they have
longed for me to do.' The Lord's promises are pure, like
silver refined in a furnace, purified seven times over.
Therefore, Lord, we know You will protect the oppressed,
preserving them forever from this lying generation, even
though the wicked strut about, and evil is praised throughout
the land." This stood out to me because I forget sometimes
that God is concerned about protecting people who are
suffering. So I overhear stories of suffering and get weighed
down by them -- there's often not much I can do to address
them. It's good to be reminded that God is also aware
and is actively involved. Which I've certainly seen evidence of.

Cool! What did you use to make the white writing? I think outlining the bricks in black turned out great!

Thanks, friends! I used a white Sakura Jelly Roll medium point pen for the writing. I like how the black outlining worked, too -- it makes the whole thing look more cartoonish.
