After visiting Beverly's blog @ How Sweet The Sound, I thought that it would be okay to share this representation of Christ, "Let the Little Children Come. It is one of those Collector's items that comes with a letter and certificate of authenticity that you see advertised in magazines. I never fall for them about Elvis, and other celebrities. But many years ago, I was so struck by the figure of the artist's conception of our Lord with children that I wanted to have it to display in my home as a testimony of my faith. I asked my Sweet hubby at the time if it would be selfish of me to buy something I deemed very expensive at this point of time in our lives. He, being the wonderful person that he is, assured me that it was not selfish, if I wanted it to purchase it.
It is such a wonderful figure and so detailed right down to the veins in the hands and feet of Jesus and the detail and joy shown in the eyes of the children. I have this displayed in my corner china closet in the living room and I see it every day. The threesome will have to be handed down like an heirloom because I could never "sell" Jesus in my lifetime. He was offered as an "investment" because the figures would increase in value through the years. But I don't care about any of that, I have invested in my eternal life by my belief in our Savior and have no need for material return. It is not worshiping an idol because I do not worship these life-like beautiful dolls, they are just that, dolls. But the symbolism is very real to me and comforting. I hope you will enjoy seeing this artist's work.
Blessings and hugs, Kerrie
