All Were Satisfied

Hello, Dear Ones.
Do you see something different in the den?


Now do you see it?

That's right! We got a new painting!
Isn't it beautiful?
It's called 'All Were Satisfied' and is based on the scripture from John 6:1 - 15 (NIV)

Jesus Feeds the Five Thousand

1 Some time after this, Jesus crossed to the far shore of the Sea of Galilee (that is, the Sea of Tiberias), and a great crowd of people followed him because they saw the signs he had performed by healing the sick. Then Jesus went up on a mountainside and sat down with his disciples. The Jewish Passover Festival was near.
When Jesus looked up and saw a great crowd coming toward him, he said to Philip, “Where shall we buy bread for these people to eat?” He asked this only to test him, for he already had in mind what he was going to do.
Philip answered him, “It would take more than half a year’s wages[a] to buy enough bread for each one to have a bite!”
Another of his disciples, Andrew, Simon Peter’s brother, spoke up, “Here is a boy with five small barley loaves and two small fish, but how far will they go among so many?”
10 Jesus said, “Have the people sit down.” There was plenty of grass in that place, and they sat down (about five thousand men were there). 11 Jesus then took the loaves, gave thanks, and distributed to those who were seated as much as they wanted. He did the same with the fish.
12 When they had all had enough to eat, he said to his disciples, “Gather the pieces that are left over. Let nothing be wasted.” 13 So they gathered them and filled twelve baskets with the pieces of the five barley loaves left over by those who had eaten.
14 After the people saw the sign Jesus performed, they began to say, “Surely this is the Prophet who is to come into the world.” 15 Jesus, knowing that they intended to come and make him king by force, withdrew again to a mountain by himself.
Look how proud and happy the little boy looks knowing his tiny lunch has fed the multitudes.
I'm sure Jesus said something like, 
"You are really something, look how many folks your lunch fed."
See Him looking at the little boy in love?
When I saw His expression I got chill bumps.

It's so beautiful and looking deep into the picture 
helps tell the story and make it more real. 
Mothers and children are sitting on one side of Jesus 
and the men are sitting on the other side.
The disciples are passing out the loaves and fishes to everyone.

We put added an accent light and it shines down on Jesus and the little boy.

It's signed and numbered by the artist
and we found out he passed away recently at age 92.

Well, in honor of my new painting,
I needed to change up the little vignette a bit on my table.

 First of all I grabbed these Bibles tied with ribbon.
The bottom two belonged to my Daddy who is now in heaven with Jesus
and the top one is mine from when I was a little girl.

I was really into long eyelashes and drew Jesus' lashes very full and long!
I have always been so talented like that, you know!
I know Jesus was laughing at me! :)

Well I popped down my 'when in need' greens 
and sat the container on a little chest for height.

I kept my lambie/ramies under my cloche from Marty's cloche party.

I'm just thrilled with my new painting and kinda pleased with my vignette too!

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia :)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

Ten Little Indians

One little boy shared his lunch
One little boy shared his lunch
One little boy shared his lunch
And Jesus fed five thousand.

Five little loaves and two little fishes
Five little loaves and two little fishes
Five little loaves and two little fishes
Jesus fed five thousand.

Took the food, prayed, and broke it
Took the food, prayed, and broke it
Took the food, prayed, and broke it
Then passed it to the apostles.

Each one ate until he was full
Each one ate until he was full
Each one ate until he was full
And there were still leftovers.

Twelve basketfuls were leftover
Twelve basketfuls were leftover
Twelve basketfuls were leftover
After each had eaten.
~ lyrics by Sharon Broome

  8. Shelia,
    I love, love l o v e your new painting! As a child, this was always my favorite of the Bible Stories...as a Sunday School Teacher, my students would tell their parents as they left the class...a little boy fed all those people and they had "left~overs" for the next day! Giggles!!! Your vignette enhances the meaning with such a sweetness of Jesus love! I appreciate seeing the Artist signature and knowing that he lived to be an elderly man! This will be in my heart today and well into the evening, dear friend. I'm pretty sure I know what my evening devotion will be, as well! Thank you for being His messenger...and my blogging friend!
    Fondly,
    Pat

  24. Hi Shelia
    Thanks so much for coming by the Back Porch. My blog visiting is hit and miss these days. We are finally settling into a routine here at the lake, with trips home every week or 10 days. We always need a couple days rest when we get back to the condo.

    We had lunch and a couple of hours visiting with friends yesterday at a favorite bistro here at the lake. They have a place down here but we never seem to manage to get together. It is days like yesterday we are grateful for in this hectic house selling adventure.

    Some of the kids will be here this coming weekend. J was on the deck cleaning windows when he said the g'kids need to be here. I guess he was missing them because there were no little hand prints on the windows.:-)

    I saw your copycat feature at Debbie's. It is definitely a cute one.

    Your new painting is absolutely beautiful!

  25. Lovely!! Funny thing....I am so used to clicking "like" on facebook, I wanted to click "like" on all of your pictures! LOL! I had to remind myself I can't do that here. Love your vignette too! So pretty. Had to laugh at the eyelashes on Jesus. I am sure you were forgiven of that sin long ago!

  36. This is a beautiful painting. I don't believe I've seen one of that Bible story before and it is so nicely done. I had to laugh quietly as grandson number 1 is supposed to be sleeping, when I read that you painted Jesus' eyelashes on the front of your Bible. Too cute! Hugs, Pamela
