Pro-life painting in Israel

We found this painting in an old Greek Orthodox church,
close to Jericho,
on the way to the Dead Sea,
 in Israel.

Psalm 139

You created my inmost being,
you knit me together in my mother's womb...

Sorek on Facebook

Sorek is a man of the world, he knows where he is going! He is traversing countries and oceans. His voice is being heard in countries all over the globe and his story has been translated for publication in Holland. His cry for help is still going out to the ends of the world: life is fragile, handle with care!

Sorek has his own Facebook page in Holland, where the battle between pro-choice and pro-life is raging, as in the USA... his country of conception. Even if you don't read the Dutch language, please be so kind as to LIKE Sorek's page and help him to spread the word. THANKS.

Life is fragile...

Song of Sorek

Have you ever tried to picture the unseen?
Have you ever seen what is invisible?
I have tried to catch my dreams and visions
As I felt them slowly slipping through my hand.

I want to catch the moment.
I want to hold the time.
I want to grab the future that is mine
As it becomes a memory.

Have you ever changed what can be seen?
Have you ever done what seems impossible?
I've tried to work on my life’s missions
Until the day when all of life fell silent.

I want to catch the moment.
I want to hold the time.
I want to grab the future that is mine
As it becomes a memory.

Lonely in the universe

sunset at Santa Barbara coast
From within the safety of his mother's womb Sorek meditates about his future on earth, where and how will He find God? 

The clouds are the dust raised by His feet, (Nahum 1:3)

"His feet are so enormous that they color the sky with patches of dust in a million shapes. Isn’t that wonderful?
I’m sure earth has a so-called scientific explanation for a cloudy sky, but I know the first time I’ll be able to see clouds, they’ll remind me that the Creator has walked before me, leaving His footprints for the world to see. Do you think He has designed things like that so I can still be in contact with Him while in the earth realm? I mean, I am not exactly looking forward to being lonely in the universe. I need connection!"

Where do we come from?

Where do we come from?
Millions of people ask themselves that question every day. What, where and when is our earthly beginning? If, as a Christian, you believe in eternal life, you believe that your life has no end, but also.... no beginning. Eternal is ever, God is eternal. He was, is and is to come.

In Breath of Life I tackle these thoughts and questions; simple, pure and raw. Un-edited as my blogger friend Tracy would say. Through the eyes of the unborn child we will learn to look at life from an eternal perspective. God puts us here on earth, our temporary residence, for a reason and with a purpose. It is not only important where we come from, but also why we are here. Join me on this quest to our earthly beginnings and beyond!

Precious sanctuary

Art: Mirjam vd Steeg
"I am thankful for this place called womb. It is my precious sanctuary, a holy place within the temple of my mother’s body"

You might call it the most holy place. Nobody but me and the Source of all life know exactly what is going on in here, it is our secret. I hope I don’t sound snobbish, but I actually feel I own the place a little, contrary to what I stated before. After all, I know every dark corner like nobody else. I am thankful because I share the rhythm of my mother’s life and I can feed on her body and all the while I am happily chatting away with my Creator, who oversees this process. 

It keeps amazing me how easily I get used to new situations in this womb process. There is no doubt in my mind that this whole thing is perfectly designed, I mean, the way things are flowing… wow! I don’t have to do any thinking, the development seems a rhythm, a dance, a sacred dance.

[About the artist: I met Mirjam at one of my book presentations, she started painting while reading Breath of Life and so gave color to the words...]
