Illustration Friday: Insect


Metamorphosis
How could the caterpillar possibly imagine what she would become in time?
_____________

How many times have we believed that we can never change? How many times have we tried to rush the process? How many times have we not moved forward from fear? How many times have we chafed against the confines of the cocoon? How many times have we lost hope that we will ever soar?

If you'd like to see a great teaching on metamorphosis, check out this online streaming video sermon by my pastor, Kerry Shook of Fellowship of the Woodlands church. When I heard this message this weekend, I knew what I had to draw for this week's Illustration Friday topic: Insect.

  2. Wonderful! This needs to be a pafe in an inspirational picture book of some sort. Along the same thoughts, one of my life-verses is Romans 12:2.

  12. Beautiful piece, Becky! The catepillar looks content and happy, like he knows that's his destiny and he's looking forward to it. Well done, girly!

    Are you living in The Woodlands? It's been a long time since I've been in the Houston area, but north of Houston is lovely.
