Faith by Carol-Moore Faith by Carol-Moore
For my dad, who has only a few days to live, due to cancer.
Faith...
What does it really mean
Faith in God
Faith in each other
Faith in a vision
Faith is loving
Faith is believing
Faith is trusting
Faith is never giving up
Faith is an open hand and plunging forward into the unknown
Faith is letting go

Update 12/26/07:
My dad passed away Dec. 19th around 9 pm, with is family all around him. It was so difficult watching him trying to breathe while his lungs filled up with fluid and the rapidly growing cancer, but Hospice made sure he was not suffering with medication. He is with the Lord now. I will miss him greatly.
I thank you all for your support and kind words. Please forgive me if I don't respond to all your messages and notes.

Done in Color Pencil, Water Color Pencil, Acrylic-Gouache

This is beautiful and I really feel for you. I can't imagine loosing my beloved father. I can only hope it gets better/easier in time. This is a beautiful piece of art, it brings so many thoughts to me. Lovely the delicate and light way you drew it... it's very emotional and pure.

Thank you Zindy! Yes, it is still very hard. This drawing is a part of my soul and represents what we all went through, and what he went through with the cancer. I miss him greatly.
