Summoned (click here to view original blog post) was created as a meditation on the calling of Jeremiah (Jeremiah 1:4-19) and the calling of each one of us.

Suddenly, out of nowhere, like Moses’ burning bush, like Jacob’s ladder, the summons comes. Anticipation trembles like leaves before a storm. Status quo groans and grumbles. Like Lazarus, I throw it off as so many dead rags. I lift my head. I’m undone. Suddenly knowing if only the light will touch me, shine through me, it is enough. I am summoned to rise up. As are you.

Cards: Cards with envelopes are sold in packages of 8 for $14. Click here to view or purchase cards on the Pamba Toto website.

Carried (click here to view original blog post) contemplates the wonder of being carried by a God who is always for the orphan, broken-hearted, down-trodden, and vulnerable.

A soul steps off a precipice, utterly free-falling at last. Only to be gathered up and carried.

On the day when evil threatens to overwhelm, when our last shred of hope leeches away, when we cry out to God, He hears. He speaks into the darkness, “Enough!” He sees the last spark of light in our soul and shields its tiny flicker.

He carries us.

Even so, let us carry on His behalf the free-falling in our midst: the orphaned, the widow, the vulnerable.

Caption on the front of each card: “He tends his flocks like a shepherd; He gathers the lambs in his arms and carries them close to his heart.” Isaiah 40:11

  1. Your artwork is exceptional. The colors are radiant and the images are powerful.

    “Your heart knows in the silence of the nights the secrets of the days, but your heart’s knowledge is difficult to put into words. The depth of your feelings and emotions present a dilemma because they are boundless and unquantifiable. There is no scale to measure your degree of sensitivity, the intensity of your suffering and joys, or the stamina and resiliency needed to overcome impediments. Life’s trajectory is neither constant or predictable. Life unfolds slowly like a flower opening one pedal at a time to reveal its beauty and divulge its treasure. To live a healthy lifestyle we must learn to resolve our troubles and stay the course, and when we find our path, we must stay focused and go forward either swiftly or quietly limping toward our goal, just as some rivers rush in a torrent or peacefully meander and linger before finding the ocean.” Judith Land, author & adoptee
