Faith

When Jenny was little, we would sometimes make sketches of our church (St. Mark's) during the mass.  In this painting, I made the walls blue like the sky and the floor green like the grass showing that God and nature are one.  The images in the stain glass windows illustrate how faith is part of your life as you grow.  I would use the scenes and other images to explain to Jenny the significance of those items in our faith.

Poem:  "Have Faith" is part of my Faith Journey Series: http://faithjourneyseries.blogspot.com/2012/06/have-faith.html.  I wrote this poem for a friend of mine to open at a retreat during their personal time of reflection.
