For God So Loved the World

 The Art
Greenfinches on Ash Twigs. I think Ash trees were one of the first trees I leaned to recognise. Those sooty buds are so distinctive. Shire horses! Wonderful. They are really from an age gone by but you still see them at shows. That's why I used the Amish gentlemen. Perhaps I should have given him some braces. Perhaps an English rural farmer in traditional clothes would have been more appropriate. There is a little bit of Yellow Archangel ion the foreground. 

The Scripture
This quote from Isaiah probably refers to the Millennium. The future thousand year rule of Christ on Earth, in which the "broad plain of the Earth" will be regenerated and peace will come at last. One thing is for sure, peace will never come by man's efforts alone.
