"Broken But Determined to Bloom"


"Broken" (Copyright 2010) is an oval 16” x 20” oil painting with an antique brown frame. The full title is “Broken But Determined to Bloom”. While exploring near a lake, I discovered some beautiful wildflowers. There was a strong sense to turn around, but seemed to find nothing there. Then it occurred to me, “look at the broken flower”. How interesting that even though it’s stem was broken, its petals kept blooming. It was as if the flower was determined not to give up. How true that is for all of us. We are all broken in some way. The secret is to draw on God’s strength and keep blooming right where we are.

“He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds."  
Psalm 147:3

"My gracious favor is all you need. My power works best in your weakness. "   2 Corinthians 12:9
