Angel Hero


My oldest son was given a sheet of black scratch paper--the kind that you scratch to reveal the colors underneath.  His art teacher wanted the class to make Christmas trees, but he asked if he could make an angel.  I think the result is amazing. 

I love the nativity scene, especially the angel.  We are accustomed to seeing folk-artsy, female angels on crafts and such, but that is not the way the Bible describes them.  I think they are more like my son drew--strong, valiant, bold, and manly.  I'm grateful for my boy's artistic talent, but even more than that, I'm thankful for his insight and discernment--and the fact that he can go against the flow!


  1. Yay!!! I'm glad you're back! I love Warren's picture.


  2. That is so cool! My oldest daughter would love that paper - I need to go to Michael's and find some!


Thanks for visiting! I haven't been blogging long, so it is really fun for me when someone takes the time to comment!
