This is one reason to read her heart breaking post in August, I prayed first for her and then to ask God what I could do to bless her. I wanted to do something that could remind her a daily basis how important she is to me and the families of the missing, while also showing her how much God loves her, and her sister, Rose.
The idea to create a painting started to form. A few trips to the library and hours reading painting books and watching watercolor tutorials on youtube.com helped to take the idea God gave me and develop it into the painting you see here. Another few days were spent selecting a few Bible verses to include on the painting. The angel represents her sister looking down on her, and she is on the beach with her arms lifted to God. It is only with God's strength, love, grace, and mercy that families of the missing survive the not-knowing, investigations, media, and waiting.
I've included a video and links for more information about Laurie's sister's case. Rose disappeared from Cape Coral, Florida in 1985. Will you take a moment to check her missing person flyer or watch the video? You never know, you might have information to help bring Rose home.
Thank you Laurie for all you do - these are the verses I included on the painting to encourage Laurie each day. I hope you find comfort in them too.
Do not be anxious about anything,
Will you share a little encouragement with Laurie today too?
