Story Behind the Art
Not long after Joy and I were married, my sister Kathleen went to Vianopolis, Brazil to teach in the New Tribes Mission boarding school for the missionary children. She enjoyed her time there. This verse became one of her favorites during her stay. I had it lettered and framed to surprise her when she got back.
The Lord is my strength and my shield;
My heart trusts in Him, and I am helped;
Therefore my heart exults,
And with my song I shall thank Him.
