Laura Gabel, "Winter with My Lover". Charcoal, 10 x 12. Private collection.
"Who is that coming up from the wilderness, leaning on her beloved?" (Song of Songs 8:5). The dark and somber tones of this charcoal piece lend an ominous and heavy tone to the work. But the brightness of the two figures in the middle remind us that not all is at it seems. In the darkness, in the winter, in the sadness, we are not alone. There is another who walks with us, who loves us and who will never leave us. Let this scene be a reminder to you in those times of great difficulty of the One who calls you His own and walks with you.
