“Do not fear therefore; you are of more value than many sparrows.” ~Matthew 10:31 NKJV

We just returned from our 4th annual family vacation in Branson, Missouri. One of the highlights is renting a boat and spending a day fishing/tubing/swimming at Table Rock Lake. The other highlight is spending time at Silver Dollar City with all of the rides, shows and old-fashioned artisan shops.

One of my new favorite shops is an inspirational art gallery near mid-town. We ducked inside to explore in air-conditioned bliss until it was time to meet the rest of the family for a fruit-topped funnel cake. The Bittersweet Gallery features the work of artist Jack Dawson and his “The Seek and Find” Series. Beautiful paintings with hidden messages and symbolism.

My wall now graces a framed print of his painting “His Eye Is On the Sparrow.” Why? Because of the refreshing message. Not even the sparrows are out of God’s sight and care. How much more does He watch over me?

What about you? Could you spot Jesus in the painting? (Hint: Find the sparrow. Look to the right for Jesus’ hand and trace it upward to find His face.) Do you sense Him watching over you?

    >Thanks for pointing the artist and his technique out to us. (My wife liked it too.) I love to see artist using their gifts to the glory of God.

    >What a lovely painting. Wish it was hanging in my house! I did see Jesus and the only thing missing is a picture of me sitting next to him!
    Thanks so much for sharing.
