Redemption

Painting by Malia Rodriguez

I am stressed but not crushed—confused but not hopeless.

—Paul (1st Cent. AD)

I am stressed but not crushed.
Confused but not hopeless.
Ridiculed but not forgotten.
Used but not trashed.

Weak but strong.
Tired but alive.
Afraid but bold.
—a new beginning.

  1. Malia,

    I love the colors you chose in your painting. The texture of the rose is really nice and the contrast between black and white is very interesting.

    What is your opinion about the topic of redemption? Can a person really have a “new beginning” even after they have messed-up big-time?

    Regards,

    Matt
