One with The Sacred Heart of Jesus

He was born for us and died for us.

With His Sacred Heart He is calling us to spend eternity with Him.

He loves us so much.

This is what we celebrate on Christmas: The perfect love and Gift of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Isn’t this what we celebrate and are thankful for each day? My first thought in the morning is a thankful prayer for a peaceful night and a request for our Lord to stay present each moment of the new day. To guide me in all I do. I also ask the Lord to keep all the people I encounter that day close to His heart.

Did you ever envision what life would be without our Lord? I tried and found nothing but emptiness. He is our essence. He is the one that fills the core of our being with Himself. He renews our whole being. He puts a spark in our hearts to share His love in a world that needs it so much.

When I created the above painting, so many things were happening in the world that was not good. I said to our Lord, “We are all made in your image; we are all alike, we are all loved equally by You.” I was troubled by all the discontent in the world. That night in a dream I was shown a table set with many different colored cups, saucers and dinnerware; various colored pillows were strung across the room. It was a beautiful picture. It all fit perfectly. I then woke up. The whole day I was contemplating about this. I had an empty canvas on my easel ready to fill. The next day with the vision still on my mind, this time not in a dream, the Holy Spirit showed me the bleeding heart of the Lord on fire. I was awestruck. Immediately I was shown the white cross behind it. I thanked the Lord and I knew I had to try to bring this to the canvas.

I did. I find the above painting a wonderful meditation on the love our Lord gives to us each day.

Our Lord died on the cross for all of us in the world. He rose from death and is one with the Father and the Holy Spirit. His heart is bleeding and on fire with love for each one of us. Let’s bind together and spread His love.

A note from the book Artist to Artist:

“The Artist has only to remain true to his dream and it will possess his work in such a manner that it will resemble the work of no other man.” (By Albert Pinkham Ryder, 1847-1917)

I wish all of you a happy Thanksgiving with family and friends, and I also wish you a very merry Christmas.

Your friend in Christ, Brunhilde

In Prayer and Meditation

Psalm 42:2-3, “As the deer longs for streams of water,
so my soul longs for you, O God.

My soul thirsts for God, the living God.
When can I enter and see the face of God.”

When I created this painting I truly cried out to the Lord, not in sadness but in love to connect my Lord to my sister who is ill. I reached to heaven in prayer and experienced this total peace that can only come from our Lord. I found myself deep into contemplative prayers: what will happen after we leave this body?

In the above painting, I can see a mysterious peek into paradise. I also see Jesus holding several little children in His arms. I can see the deer bending their head to drink water. As an artist, I have a great imagination. I am very thankful for that gift. Our Lord also had to imagine first all that He created. I paint from my soul, where my Lord dwells.

I just finished reading a book by Erwin Raphael McManus The Artisan Soul, crafting your life into a work of art. I fell in love with his book. He also spoke about how as you create become one with the Lord and so your creation becomes a oneness with God.

It is important to find your own voice. Be the one you were created to be. To do good art you must have courage. It is your ow n soul you paint. Anybody studying my paintings will know me well.  It is the Lord within me. I am a passionate artist. Sit back, relax and find your peace, the peace that can only come from our Lord. Become very still and allow God to touch your soul through my painting.

The following is one of my poems:

I like to paint heaven with purest delight,
Where people walk happily side by side,
No color or gender will keep them apart,
We will all walk together in His great big heart.

May God bless you much,
love, your friend Brunhilde

Come closer to the Light

Psalm 27

“The Lord is my light and my salvation, whom should I fear?
The Lord is my Life’s refuge; of whom should I be afraid?”

Revelation 22: 1-5

“Then the angel showed me the river of life-giving water, sparkling like crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb down the middle of the street. On either side of the river grew the tree of life that produces fruit twelve times a year, once each month; the leaves of the trees serve as medicine for the nations. Nothing accursed will be found there anymore. The throne of God and of the Lamb will be in it, and his servants will worship him. They will look upon his face, and his name will be on their foreheads. Night will be no more, nor will they need light from lamp or sun, for the Lord God shall give them light, and they shall reign forever and ever.”

 

When I created this painting, I felt so close to the Lord. It felt like a prayer when you feel His calling: come closer!

This time I started the painting with the center, the light. Soon the painting emerged. Time went by quickly and as I studied the painting I knew it was time to put the brush down. Just a few little touches the next day and I knew it was finished.

To create a work of art one has to be truly alive and very still at the same time to capture a moment of thought. This moment you cannot repeat, what you see is what your spirit adds to line and color. Please take time to study the painting, so you see what your spirit sees.

In the words of Philip Guston (1930-1980)

“The painting is not on a surface, but on a plane which is imagined. It moves in a mind. It is not there physically at all. It is an illusion, a piece of magic, so what you see is not what you see.”

In the words of Eugene Delacroix (1798-1863)

“The merit of a painting is undefinable…..in a word, it is what the spirit adds to color and line that appeals to the soul.”

John 12: 46, 47

“I came into the world as light, so that everyone who believes in me might not remain in darkness. And if anyone hears my words and does not observe them, I do not condemn him, for I did not come to condemn the world but to save the world.”

I hope you enjoy my newest creation,

May God bless you and keep you,

Your friend Brunhilde
