//fifty-two weeks of design
“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.” I Corinthians 13:4-8
A lot of different sources are the cause of this artwork. I was planning on doing something completely different for this week's 52WOD, but yesterday and today took a sudden change of turns resulting in the theme I felt the need to cover: LOVE.
What made me stumble upon those Bible verses I quoted atop was Joe's beautifully written post. When he said "I encourage you to peel it apart," I truly sat down and ingested every single word of those verses that appeared before my eyes. Indeed, what beautiful words they are.
I've also realized how often we're used to hate, and how it's so prevalent in our day-to-day lives, in the media and in our relationships. It's so easy for us to bash on another person, another public figure, another opposing viewpoint, but so immensely difficult for us to say something that would edify another's life. We forget too often the eternal truth: Love never fails. No matter what, it will never fail. Never.
(Everything was hand-drawn this week. I feel like what I wanted to achieve called for something imperfect. Also, the photograph belongs to me).
