Streams in the Desert and my childhood Bible

September 25, 2012 | 2 Comments

I am breaking my new rule and posting mid week….

It is a sketch I did back in Dec 2010, just after my Nanna past into glory. This book of hers (given to her from her mother in 1942 when she was 27) was given to me.

It is a daily devotional book and on the weekend I saw in on my shelves and thought I should start reading it so imagine how nice it was to see that Adebanji Adeola Alade (an amazing artist in London) posted a quote from it today on facebook,

“He was better to me than all my hopes;
He was better than all my fears;
He made a bridge of my broken works,
And a rainbow of my tears.”

– Streams in The Desert

Please also check out this- a sketch of my first bible that I was given from my Nanna and Pa and that I drew in memory of her the day after she died.
