God's Hospitality


I wanted this to be something to counter all the negative stuff on mass media about events in the pandemic; a reminder of the simple, ordinary decency of caring for those who are struggling just now, that never reaches our screens or our radios; enjoy! Love and God bless, Andy :)

Beautiful interpretation of his compassion and empathy for the poor and hungry, Andrew. The colours emanate the warmth of his compassion. x

Thank you Jacqueline for you lovely feedback, love & peace; God bless, Andy🙂 x
