Vincent Could Have Told You – A Poem

Another odd Friday post. Maybe Friday is just a day for recipes and odd posts. Anyway, I received a challenge to write a poem in response to a video montage of all of Vincent Van Gogh’s self-portraits. I decided to take up the challenge. You can view the video itself by going to the challenge link above.

But since my blog often deals with God, I had to first do a bit of research about Van Gogh’s view of God so that I could incorporate that into the poem. Here is what I ended up with.

Vincent Could Have Told You

Faces change
My face changes
With the seasons
With my mood
I paint a changing me

But I remain
Beneath the face
What I call God
That which is love
It does not change

I am a Jesus Freak, and I don't care who knows it. I am a wife, mother, sister, aunt, daughter, and friend. My blood family is only part of the larger family of Christ that I belong to. I love to write, especially about my dear Savior.
