Baptized by Tears

The woman in this painting draws strength from the water (her "baptism") to face the dawn of a new day.  Like the "warrior pose" she displays, she must be brave and strong for whatever her new future brings. Using her tears (the water) as her stepping stones to rise with a fresh spirit onto solid ground.  God (the sun) is her strength as He sends His flock of angels (the birds) to rally around her.  The heart cloud points out her new direction...forward.
