The tree

My best friend from college recently asked me to paint a picture of a tree for her boyfriend.  All she told me is that she wanted it to be an oak tree because of Isaiah 61:3 which is special to the two of them.  

Isaiah 61 is incredible.  It's about God taking the broken down and oppressed and making them stunning examples of his glory.  In verse three he says, "They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the Lord for the display of his splendor."  This definitely intimidated me since I had the responsibility of portraying such a powerful message. But, I was pumped to have the opportunity of trying.  I hope that God blessed it so that when they look at it they can sense the Lord's love and future glory for his hurting children.
