Great Expectations….

This piece was inspired by “Weathered Warrior” and uses a lot of similar collage materials, but for this one, I wanted to focus on the hope we have that “one day, everything that is sad will become untrue.”  This was an idea put forth by JR Tolkein in the Lord of the Rings books and I love this idea of our reality of brokenness and sorrow we see everyday being unseated and made “untrue” by the God who created this world and has a better future in mind for us.  We see glimpses of it in our world now.  The beauty and joy and kindness that we experience in part will someday be made whole and us along with it.
