Bible Art Journaling: New Mercies Process video

New video posted!

This a short video on the making of this illustration in my Crossway ESV Single Column Journaling bible.

Lamentations 3:21-27

This is how sunrises look in some parts of Alaska in late summer.  The fireweed is in full bloom and it's vivid pink and purple flowers glow when the sun shines on them.

Summer is winding down quickly here, the nights are getting cold and it is getting dark earlier every day.  However, with the arrival of the darkness also comes the arrival of the stars and the northern lights.  We don't see them in the summer because it doesn't get dark.

I am going to miss the sunrises though.  In the winter, the sun rises in the south and sets in the south.  I have a large mountain to the south and the sun barely makes it high enough in the sky to peek over that mountain, in the darkest days of winter.

Because of this, the dawning sun is always wonderful and appreciative occurance, when we are in the heart of the dark winter.
