Silence Before the Storm

This was the scene one day as storm clouds were gathering across the lake. Perhaps you have experienced this stillness before a storm moves in.   The wooden boat was slightly adrift.  The painting is significant to me because of the scripture Luke 5:3. It reminds us to stay anchored and keep Jesus in the boat with us as we navigate our daily "waters".

Grassroots is a bucolic scene on the grounds of the Girls Ranch in rural Tallapoosa County, Alabama.  The ranch is a peaceful home for girls from troubled families.
