At the beginning of the week that I was trying to figure out the Come Alive painting, I was attempting my quiet time when I opened my journal. It happened to open to the first page where I had an index card written from a friend. I had forgotten about that index card until I read the words on there “Don’t forget, I LOVE YOU! -God”. I ended up in tears as I had been going through some massive spiritual warfare over the previous week or so. Shortly after that, I came up with a painting for those words. I wanted to do the background in a similar style to another painting of mine without using the same colors. What you see is what I came up with. As I was waiting to start that painting (needed to finish Come Alive first) I felt that I was supposed to give a photo of the finished painting to Jeremy Camp when I saw him about 2 months later. I had no idea why, then he mentioned something somewhere that confirmed why I was supposed to do that (and I couldn’t tell you what it was). The flowers in the painting are meant to be more subtle and blend in to a degree. I was trying to come up with something that expressed romance in a way that humans tend to portray it without going overboard in the romance side of things, hence the fancy font and the flowers.
