The painting at the top of the page hangs in my living room. It is an oil painting, created by my dear artist friend, Mary Betzenderfer. It is titled "The Proverbs 31 Woman." Mary is a very dear woman who has endured much pain in her life, but because and through this, knows much of Jesus' grace and love. She is a great woman of faith who touches the lives of everyone she meets with the power of the truth of the gospel and the tenderness of the gentle hand of God.
