Consider the Lilies

Last year a dear friend of mine lost her baby boy.  He was just one week old. She asked me to sing at the funeral and we chose Consider the Lilies.  I'm not sure how I got through it, but I got a lot of extra help that day.  

After the funeral I started this painting for her - of lilies of the valley (the most prolific lily).  It didn't go anywhere for a long time. Finally about a year later, I finished it and gave it to her. I hope it provides some additional comfort and a reminder of the words of the song.
