Vincent Van Gogh
Do you recognize this painting?
If you watched this episode, you might.
(It's just a tribute--for the real thing go to Netflix and watch Doctor Who: Vincent and the Doctor.)
I was at my grandma's on Saturday and she gave me three paintings.
The church with the monster in the window.
(I took the picture in the lamplight last night.)
And this one:
The paintings are on canvas. They are beautiful replicas of the originals. (My grandma is a poor widow--so no original Van Goghs here) She found the copies and framed them herself over 50 years ago and has had them with her in every home.
I keep crying as I look at this beautiful gift.
Of all the things she could have given me...
My heart just keeps overflowing.
I wish I could adequately express my overwhelming gratitude. Of all the paintings in the world to give me--Amy's sunflowers, the fields, and the church with the monster! I got chills when I realized which paintings they were!
This week has been filled with miracles and blessings too numerous to name. I feel carried right now. Wrapped in a cocoon.
Today I am grateful for my grandmother, for art, and for Vincent Van Gogh.
