Late Have I Loved You

by Artist Eye

Come to me, all you that are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.  -Matthew 11:28
 
This scripture is sometimes known as “The Comfortable Words”. An old fashioned use of the word “comfortable”, harkening back to the roots of the word (the Latin confortare: con plus fortis which meant “to strengthen”). Not the way we use the word today but a meaning worth recovering, I’d say.

About Artist's Eye

Our family moved to the Community in 1990. While raising our two children here I've worked at Paraclete Press and have been involved with Fine Arts over the years. I love to paint, tell stories, and build puppets--a thirty foot whale and her baby for the Spirit of America Band Field Show was one of the funnest projects I've ever done!
