March Photo Challenge – Bedside.

If you came to visit me, this would be your room and your bedside.  Your window looks out over the front yard with the chicken coop off to the side.  You would hear the roosters crow all night long . . . for free.

The Carl Bloch painting of Christ in the Garden of Gethsemane is one of my favorites of the Savior.  It is an encouraging one to wake up to because it is a reminder of the love of the Savior.  It is a humbling one to go to sleep to because it is a reminder of the price.  I feel such love for Him and from Him because of what happened in the Garden.

"And there appeared an angel unto him from heaven, strengthening him."  Luke 22:43 
Bruce R. McConkie said, "We know that an angel came from the courts of glory to strengthen him in his ordeal,
and we suppose it was mighty Michael, who foremost fell that mortal man might be."

What a beautiful thought and picture of the Savior. Bloch is one of my favorites.

I have a free bed too if you're ever down near these parts:)

That was my favorite painting when the Bloch exhibit came to BYU! It is so tender.
