There’s so much importance of taking time away to spend hidden with God, which I always come back to when I look at this painting. We have to take a step back from the world and reorientate ourselves and remember where we are headed.

This is the view front he retreat house from college, the forest and hills, the path and barn, are perfectly arranged to frame the beautiful sunset.

The winding path leads down, back to reality, but for the moment we can rest because we are on God’s time.

The world can’t be our master. We cannot serve both God and mammon.


In particular this painting is special to me because it’s the retreat house from my college years. Those were really rough and hectic times where my major required me to be on campus the whole day, seven days a week. Taking time to go on retreat was a laughable prospect.

Literally. I laughed at the missionary who first invited me on a retreat.

But somehow (#theHolySpirit) I found the time. The classic move where the literal only weekend I didn’t have to be at school was the weekend of the retreat.

And it was a game changer. What was I doing at school? Why was I so obsessed with work? How could I have put God second this whole time?

I couldn’t go often, my major didn’t change, but over the years I was able to go back and take the time off. The friendships, the prayer, the simple time for rest, it was always perfect.

For every order, 10% of all proceeds will go to organizations who provide resources to at risk women before and after birth.

The first is The Pregnancy Care Center of Rockford. They area a local organization to me,  providing resources and care for free to women in crisis pregnancies, from ultrasounds to parenting classes to post abortion healing.

The second is the Sisters of Life, a newer religious community founded in 1991 in New York to promote the dignity of every human life. They have houses for women to come live with them during and after their pregnancy as they get back on their feet, as well as counseling for post abortion healing, and other missions.
