Over our mantel hangs artwork of Turning Bear Mason, a Native American who is forthright in his desire to glorify God through his art: “God has given me a hunger to know Him through His truth, that is through His Word and His creation.”
I’m drawn into the moody, deep blue landscape silhouetted with sparse evergreens.
But in the late afternoon, when the blinding western sun glows through our front window onto the print, the brooding scene awakens. Now I realize there’s a teepee that had been hidden in the shadows. It’s as if the woman inside has lit her cooking fire and her home flares with life against the darkening sky. I imagine the Evening Prayer of her family, gathered in a circle around the fire, thanking God for the food he has provided.
