Like a Kid

Forgive me for neglecting this blog for a while, I am just trying to regroup after a harrowing last several weeks, and with Christmas looming in the corner.  I thought it might be appropriate to share this image in time for the holiday season and for many of us looking to celebrate the birth of our one and only Savior:

And he said: “Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.

Matthew 18:3

Jesus Christ gave a perfect example of how one should practice their faith- a child. A child is innocent, carefree, and full of wonder, ready to accept whatever comes their way. Sadly as we get older we lose that childlike innocence, as we are confronted with the grim realities of life; we are forced to take our rose colored glasses off and become self-absorbed, biased, desensitized, as we strive to stay afloat in the volatile environment. Often times we wish for the days when we could be kids again without the worries and fears and insecurities.

Luckily having faith in Christ doesn’t have to be as difficult. As Jesus teaches, it just takes one simple act of childlike acceptance of his Word. And before you know it you can be like a kid again, joyful and full of hope.  Something we can really use for this dark age we live in.

Lisa Lee is an artist and writer based in Southern California. She was educated at Cal State University Long Beach where she received her BFA in Illustration, and originally focused her career goal in animation and/or comic books. After eight years freelancing on various projects from web graphics to concept art she now devotes full time to painting and drawing as well as writing and producing graphic novels. She combines her past experiences in animation and graphic art with the elements of modern masters such as Vincent Van Gogh, Pablo Picasso, Jean-Michel Basquiat, and Keith Haring. Much of her style revolves around Expressionism and Pop Art, and she treats each piece independently of one another; in short, she uses different styles and techniques for different subject matters. Her interests spans a wide array, from social and political issues, popular culture, movies, history, mythology, and her own personal experiences. She tends to shift back and forth between the light and the dark side; her work will often reflect her mood. When not associating herself with art Lisa enjoys movies, listening to music, driving around aimlessly, and occasionally dabbles on weird hobbies such as cooking, jewelrymaking, and picking weeds.
