Art and Beauty Tuesday--Stephen Gjertson

Today's Art and Beauty Tuesday is called Peace, Be Still by Stephen Gjertson.  It is a breathtaking painting showing Jesus calming the storm.  How apt this is as many parts of the U.S. deal with unseasonably severe storms and floods.

Jesus can calm our inner storms as well.  All we need to do is let go and let Him calm our turmoil.

As with many of the paintings I feature, this one is worth going to the original website and viewing it in a large size.

Beautiful picture. Being at peace among the storm has been an ongoing theme for me these last few weeks. I'm hearing the same lesson over and over in various places. Thanks for another reminder.

It is a constant challenge to do, that's for sure.

Yes, our Lord calmed the storm and His grace calms the storm in our hearts if we only are willing to turn our will over to Him.

Thank you for the painting,

Dymphna's favorite quotes

"Slavery ended in medieval Europe only because the church extended its sacraments to all slaves and then managed to impose a ban on the enslavement of Christians (and of Jews). Within the context of medieval Europe, that prohibition was effectively a rule of universal abolition. "— Rodney Stark
