Faceless - Psalm 139

I want to share a gorgeous piece of artwork that was given to me in the Spring of 2012. I was visiting my sister Emma in Colorado when she was attending her Basic Semester at Ellerslie and while I was there, I was able to share my story. A young woman named Rachel was at Ellerslie then too.

On the day we were leaving, I found this beautiful piece waiting for me in my sister's room. It is called "Faceless" and is based on Psalm 139.

Faceless, by artist Rachel Hollowell

Rachel is a talented artist and she was sweet to give me this drawing that beautifully portrays the sacred time of carrying life within.

"For You created my inmost being;
You knit me together in my mother's womb.
I praise You because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
Your works are wonderful,
I know that full well.
My frame was not hidden from You
when I was made in the secret place,
when I was woven together in the depths of the earth.
Your eyes saw my unformed body;
all the days ordained for me were written in Your book
before one of them came to be."
-Psalm 139:13-16
