Pictures With A Message


Asleep on the river?

An American Indian asleep in his canoe...is resting after a long days journey and allowing the river to carry him gently down stream....but drifting dangerously close to a waterfall - will he wake up in time to row to shore and safety?

Many lessons can be drawn here - one of the biggest is about unforeseen danger - and it's a situation people face drifting in lifes canoe, unaware and asleep to eternal realities - not realising the dangers ahead...or their need for a Saviour.

Roselyn Doyne Clark, wrote to me and shared about how her Grandma had a similar picture on her wall of an Indian asleep in his canoe, as he neared a falls. it still remains vivid in her mind...as she had never seen another like it. I asked Roselyn for permission to produce a similar picture - which can be seen here.

The picture has a story to tell and it would be good to find the original source of inspiration, if any subscribers know of this please contact me, it would be good to know the background to it...which has so many lessons to teach us.
