In memory of the children

Matthew 19:14

Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, 
for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.”
In memory of the children. 12/14/12 

I painted this piece “Ascension of the Innocents” a couple years ago after a dream I had. In that dream there were souls of children ascending to heaven carrying red balloons. I remember that at that time I was very fearful of death and I’d like to think that this dream came to me because it showed me that death was not something to be feared. That God in his mercy carries souls to heaven in the most peaceful of ways…. especially the souls of innocent children. We are all God’s children regardless of age… he loves us all just the same.
