"O Come Let Us Adore Him"
Song: "O, Come All Ye Faithful" by John Reading
Text: Isaiah 9:6 (NIV)
OK. This may sound a bit strange, but nevertheless, it's true. I made the "O" one day when I was experimenting with an odd brush I'd found in a box of stuff. After I was done, I marveled at the fact that this "O" was so beautiful; so "complete"; and so utterly beyond anything I was capable of doing on my own (a fact that has been proven over and over because I can't seem to replicate that O, no matter what I do!!!). When this happens, I just can't help but remember that all I have--any talent, gift, ability, etc.--is God working through me; a gift from Him, given to me when I was created in His image, to represent His glory here on the earth and to worship Him with all of my life. All I have is from Him, through Him and for Him.
After that "O", it just seemed fitting to put the rest of the writing "come let us adore Him". And a reminder of who He (Jesus/Father/Jehovah God) is: the , mighty God, everlasting Father.
