|The Meek Shall Inherit the Earth|
And this wonderful painting too with a child and sheep - Its accompanying poem follows:
|Blessed Are the Merciful For They Shall Obtain Mercy|
“Blessed are the Merciful….For They Shall Obtain Mercy”
Mercy with truth go hand in hand
like grains piling up in hourglass sand.
One pile melding one into another
As done for a friend as soothing a brother.
Mercy without truth is death to a soul
Without sincere gospel, severity would be bold.
Both must link, long, firm and fast
so righteousness and peace will kiss at last. (Psalm 85:10)
So, Blessed are the merciful for they shall obtain
Mercy… so sweet, in millennial reign. (Mathew 5:7)

Mary Jane paints with her fingertips. Q Cross: The Painter Behind the Portraits is a documentary video about her work that I recommend you watch with your children. It's just under a half hour.
And here is a link to a website where you can view her artist's statement and paintings. I also recommend her lovely book of poetry and paintings, Poems of a Painter, Paintings of a Prayer. It has full page paintings with the corresponding poems.
