Drew this standing out in the cold today. Nearly froze my hands off. First in pencil - about 30 minutes, and then later I darkened it with pen back at the house. Sorry about that "doubletake" watermark. I guess I have to purchase that stitching program to remove that mark. It was sure nice to draw again.

I had never quite heard the Simeon story quite this way before. It's a perfect a message for the Sunday after Christmas - a sort of "rest of the story". The baby Jesus is brought to the temple 8 days after his birth and when Simeon sees the child he has a vision of what will be. He prays aloud, "I have seen your salvation which you have prepared for all people. He is a light to reveal God to the nations and he is the glory of your people Isreal!" Luke 2:30-32.
