For God So Loved the World

 The Art
A Nuthatch, not a common bird, is always thrilling to see. I saw one in the New Forest once, where we were camping. They are normally quite shy birds but this one clearly quite used to people and came within a few feet of us looking for scraps of food. I have given this one an unusual setting. Just an excuse to paint all the other stuff really. And a bit of White Bryony thrown in for good measure.

The Scripture
A very positive scripture describing Gods love for those who know him. His plans are always in our best interest even when we don't like them. There is an idea today that Christians can claim health and  wealth as if it was a personal right. But Jesus never promised that, and the fact is, the more a Christian gives himself to his saviour, he can expect opposition, even to death in some cases. Ultimately of course, every true believer can expect to inherit the King of Heaven and all that that means.
