One of the things I enjoy about going to the farmer’s market is meeting people. As a matter of fact, it’s the people, even the other vendors, that make it worth getting up at the crack of dark.
Another thing I enjoy – and this might be the best part – is getting the opportunity to share my faith through my art, especially when people ask, “What’s a gape?”
Since you are reading and not listening, let me try to sound this out for you. People ask what a “gape” is, like “what is a grape?” without the “r.”
The problem for a lot of people is that they are unfamiliar with the Greek word for unconditional love: agape. It’s pronounced something like “uh-gah-pay.” That’s why they ask the above question whenever they see this painting/drawing I did as I imagined the blood of Jesus Christ flowing from the foot of the cross.
Philippians 2:8 – And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.
