Promises

Someone gave me this Spanish promise box as a gift. At first glance I saw a flowery, saccharine affair, with ‘little lambs’ and love hearts plastered all over the cover. Not really me, but I appreciated the thought.

I had no idea how much those cheesy cartoons would help me. There is something so plaintive about the expression in the drawings that says it all. Images of helplessness and despair on some of the cards, albeit on hand-drawn baby sheep, really resonate, and the ecstatic jubilation depicted in others draws out an encouraged smile.

The one in the picture is Psalms 140:12, and reads, “I know that the LORD will maintain the cause of the afflicted, and the right of the poor.”

Hoping it brightens your day. It did mine.
