Mother and Child

Gustav Klimt “Mother and Child”

If one feels the need of something grand,
something infinite,
something that makes one feel aware of God,
one need not go far to find it.
I think that I see something deeper,
more infinite, more eternal than the ocean
in the expression of the eyes of a little baby
when it wakes in the morning and coos or laughs
because it sees the sun shining on its cradle.

Vincent Van Gogh

  1. God wants us to trust Him like that little baby trusts his Mommy, doesn’t He? Totally at peace and sure that all is right with the world in her (His) arms!

    What a beautiful picture. I haven’t seen other paintings besides The Kiss by that artist. He uses such beautiful colors, and He’s definitely not shy in what he paints! 🙂 Jenny
