Dwight is a dear friend recently diagnosed with cancer. I want to gift him with words and reminders of things that are precious to him–things that fill his heart with peace and joy and hope. Dwight and his wife, Jan are avid fly fishermen. I googled images of fly fishing and was captured by this early morning one shrouded in mountain fog. The picture did not have the amber tones my camera picked up and I added a verse to it on power point but decided to attach it to the back of my canvas in a card instead at the suggestion of my daughter. What do you think?
It’s been a long, hard journey for Dwight. He’s had chemo, radiation, a feeding tube and near death hospitalized for aspiration. It’s been a privilege to participate in Dwight’s recovery and, as a nurse, facilitate his rehab efforts. Now he is on the other side, praise God! Dwight’s PET scan showed no evidence of cancer in his entire body! Next stop: feeding tube out! Woohoo!!!
So, about the painting, the neatest and sweetest pay I could ever receive was when Dwight said he would visualize my painting every time he was in the radiation tube receiving treatment. It brought him peace and encouragement. Thank you Jesus!
Dwight had the painting framed and displays it in his living room on a cool easel. Here it is!
