Avenue in the Rain

I like flags and I love being a citizen of the United States of America.

Today I wanted to share with you a picture I have in my kitchen.

This painting was painted by Childe Hassam in 1917. When I looked him up I noticed he was born before the Civil War, lived through World War I, and died after the depression hit. I imagine he witnessed a lot of sadness in his life.

This painting has sad undertones, but I also see glimmers of hope shining through the rain.

Romans 5:5 "Now hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us."

I hope you have a great week.
