Faith Variation by gilad Faith Variation by gilad

I don't know if you hear me now, or if you even bother to try and listen
What I have to say won't take a second, whether you are listening or not.
You let us die, you let us kill each other, I'm sure you have your reasons.
Please, just take care of my family, of my kid.
I beg of you, Just him, even if all else fails.

For that small request, I live in your shadow.

I want to dedicate this to my dear dad, that passed away three weeks ago.
I know that in his prayers, he always just wanted the best for his familt, for his kids.
The love of god, is a tool in the profilment of the world we live in. He is in a different world now, and now I pray for him.

And now, the picture:
In the jewish religion there is a belief that while saying a prayer, the hands must stay above the waist line, since everything benith it is forbidden in that sense. It doesn't make much sense to me, but it does for the believers.
Anyway, that's why while saying prayers they use a lacing strapped over the waist to play with, and make sure it's not going below the waist.

Full View, Please

Hi There! :wave:
You have just earned yourself an O.D.D.(^oibyrd's daily devs) feature :winner: ! congrats! !! :clap:
ODDS (oibyrd's daily deviations) are to honor the sometimes overlooked artists of dA that I personally think deserve some exposure and also, to introduce the more popular artists to the new/overlooked deviants. I prefer to showcase ALL artwork that I love (and that includes popular artists with a fair amount of traffic to their work) in order to create a non-biased feature of the talent on dA. *PLZ DO KEEP IN MIND - some of the features are quite popular and obviously don't need extra help - however - I enjoy posting them because they inspire other artists. Please click the link below to see your work featured and to view other featured artists . If you prefer not to be a featured artist, just send me a note and I will remove you from the list. Cheers! Sandi xoxo

In my search for images evoking faith...I come across this one and wonder - why on earth is this a scrap?
It's beautiful - both the description and the image. I hope you are okay with me showing it - it's a very touching image to say the very VERY least...
...but when I read your damn nearly had me in tears.
:cling: even though this is way late in the game - I offer my heartfelt condolences - and the utmost respect for being one of the select few on this site that I not only admire, but feel a certain affinity to your work. Each capture is so captivating, it makes me wonder if you ever make mistakes lol. ;) xoxoxo cheers love. this is gorgeous.
