6 And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart: And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart: 7And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up. – Deuteronomy 6:6-7
When you look at the artwork of And You Shall Love… Spring do you see a tree in spring or the Words of God that create the world?
Judy Rey Wasserman’s UnGraven Image art presents images that are totally created by strokes that are the Torah font letters used as traditional art stokes. These letter-strokes are interwoven, layered, glazed, and used seemingly randomly here and there. They represent and emulate the tiniest particles of matter and pre-matter. They also represent the words of the Creator, Ruler of the universe through whose Word all things are called into being in Genesis 1.
Close up of strokes from And You Shall Love… Spring
In And You Shall Love… Spring the original Torah font letters of Deuteronomy 6:5-9 are the colorful strokes that create this image. These unique letter-strokes symbolize the basic belief that is held by all branches and denominations of Judaism and Christianity — that the letters of the words spoken by the Lord God are the tiny basic building blocks of our world (the physical universe).
The Spiritual Significance of Spring
In nature spring visually presents birth and rebirth, redemption, salvation and freedom both physically in nature and spiritually for humankind.
The seed is selected for planting in the prepared earth where it is hoped that t will grow to fulfill its destiny growing into a successful plant or tree that is ripe with more seeds of its own kind by the fall harvest. The spring is when we are reminded of God’s promises for our future, promises of freedom that is necessary for our fulfillment.
And You Shall Love… Spring is bursting into bloom with love, hope, and renewal. As a season spring represents birth, both physically for nature and spiritually for humankind. In the Hebrew Testament, spring is the beginning of our Spiritual Calendar.
The spring holiday of Easter is also the beginning of the Christian spiritual calendar, as Christianity began with salvation and redemption to freedom, too.
Through our holidays we are further reminded of when we first encountered the power and presence of our God and fall in love again. We are reminded again to go forth loving the Lord with all our heart, with all our soul, and with all our might. These holidays are also special times when we dress up to gather around a holiday meal with our families, including children and invited guests.
Place this artwork by a doorway to the outside or leading from or to a room that you or a loved one frequently use. A great reminder of God’s ongoing direction and care for us in daily life!
