I Will Follow Him

I Will Follow Him
YouTube is great for so many things. Today, as I type, I am listening to a song from 1963, I Will Follow Him. I also remember hearing the song in a movie about a nun/singer who was running from the mob. Oh yeah, Sister Act was the name of that one. I love this lyrical song, and it can be so very expressive!

Ready to frame 



This is another of my 30 paintings in 30 days challenge paintings, and I am still a little bit on the landscape concept. It is strange to look at my own work and see so many somewhat representational paintings in a row! This landscape reminds me of a place far away, and maybe a little lonely. The colors seem reminiscent of a sunset. I would really have to love someone to follow him that far...

This morning I was reading in the Old Testament book of Jeremiah. Jeremiah is called 'the weeping prophet' because of the sorrowful things he had to tell Israel. In Jeremiah 2:2, GOD says to Israel 
"I remember the loyalty of your youth,
your love as a bride—
how you followed Me in the wilderness,
in a land not sown." 
I just find it heartbreaking how Israel - the nation GOD called as His own - left their love for Him. 

As I listen to this song (so powerfully done in this cover) I can feel my own heart wanting to follow my GOD wherever He goes. I am pretty sure I don't have the will-power in myself, but may He keep me close! 

I Will Follow Him by Peggy March
I will follow him, follow him wherever he may go
There isn't an ocean too deep
A mountain so high it can keep me away
I must follow him, ever since he touched my hand I knew
That near him I always must be
And nothing can keep him from me
He is my destiny
I love him, I love him, I love him
And where he goes I'll follow, I'll follow, I'll follow
He'll always be my true love, my true love, my true love
From now until forever, forever, forever

I will follow him, follow him wherever he may go
There isn't an ocean too deep
A mountain so high it can keep, keep me away
Away from my love
