Title of Artwork: “Between the Trees"
Description of Artwork: When thinking about the theme of "home" I often think about my childhood and how everything seemed to be more straightforward and uncomplicated. I held moments of safety and feelings of love close to my heart when I remember being surrounded by my family when I was a kid. My story, "Between the Trees" helps to synthesize that feeling. The realization that home will always be around and even though that place may be the same, it's me who has changed. Complications and realizations tend to cloud everyday life and feelings but remembering who you are and where you came from is important to me. Being "home" was never about the materials that were at my disposal, it was more about how the people around me made me feel like things were going to be okay no matter what happens. My story relates the feelings of childhood to the realization that we are growing up and that "Home", whatever it may be, is something that can't be taken away from us. Putting it into a biblical perspective is important as well. Taking into c onsideration that there is a home in heaven for us and that this world will eventually fade away is something that should be at the forefront of our minds. Being reunited with our Father is something that I can't wait to experience when the time comes. I can't wait to actually go Home.

Amen! I’ve moved around a few times in my life and it’s been rough, but it’s comforting to see and read art that points me to heaven as the ultimate and most fulfilling home I can look forward to living in :)

I really enjoyed this story and how vivid it was. Even though this isn’t my life story, I was still able to relate to the feeling of coming back to a place you once called home. It is a touching story that is sure to touch anyones heart. Great job!!!
