"On the Wings of a Dove"
Acrylic on canvas
January 2018

The following scripture from the Passion Translation is speaking to me through this painting.  The verses below stand out but the whole of Song of Solomon 2 speaks to my heart for this season.  It’s the season for the dove company to arise and awaken.  God’s love is guiding them through.  He is gathering the ones who have become a living sacrifice unto Him.   They have made an everlasting covenant with Papa God. The doves have found their resting place upon the earth.  Those wine goblets are being filled up and poured out. 
Song of Solomon 2:
1  I am truly his rose,
The very theme of his song.
I am overshadowed by his love,
Growing in the valley.
5 Revive me with your goblet of wine.
 Refresh me again with your sweet promises,
 Help me and hold me, for I am lovesick! 
11 The season has changed,
The bondage of your Barren winter has ended,
And the season of hiding is over and gone.
The rains have soaked the earth.
12 And left it bright with blossoming flowers.
The season for pruning the vines has arrived.
I hear the cooing of doves in our land,
Filling the air with songs
To awaken you and guide you forth.

"A Table Set for the King"

Acrylic on Canvas
January 2018

Feasting on God and His word.  The flowers are blooming and the two candlesticks are alight.  The wine glasses are about to be filled with the Holy Ghost wine and as we partake God will fill us up and pour us out.  Are you ready to take a seat at the table with Him and enjoy the fruit of your labour?
Psalm 128:2 You will eat the fruit of your labor; blessings and prosperity will be yours (NIV)
The Passion Translation version of this scripture reads:
Psalm 128:
1 How joyous are those who love the Lord and bow low before God, ready to obey him!
2 Your reward will be prosperity, happiness and well-being.
3 Your wife will bless your heart and home.  Your children will bring you joy as they gather around your table.

This is a picture of a groom twirling his bride while dancing.  To twirl is to rotate rapidly, to turn quickly in a spiral shape.  He reaches for her hand, twirling her around in a circle, leading her in an elegant dance, the more she spins the closer she gets to her groom.

"I Thee Wed"
Pam Finlay
Acrylic on Canvas
January 2018

This painting is called “I Thee Wed”.
When the bridegroom and bride exchange rings in the wedding ceremony the words spoken are “with this ring I thee wed”.    It is the last part of the wedding vow and the rings seal the bond for life between the groom and his bride. Throughout history the wedding ring has been the emblem of eternity.  It serves as a reminder of the covenant you made on this day before God.  After the vows are exchanged the veil is lifted and the groom kisses his bride. 

As I was painting this I was thinking of the pledge we make to our Saviour, Jesus Christ, on the day we ask him into our heart.   It is so like a marriage vow, a life-long commitment to love, honour and obey the beloved.  We become one with Him on this day.  Two hearts joined as one. 

Song of Solomon 8: 6 Set me as a seal upon your heart, as a seal upon your arm; for love is as strong as death, jealousy as cruel as the grave; its flames are flames of fire, a most vehement flame.  (NKJV)

Love and blessings,
