30 Days of Holiday Cards - Day 19: In Good Hands

In Good Hands Holiday Greeting Card card

Today's card is my "In Good Hands" Holiday Greeting Card.  On the front of it is a digital painting depicting an angel holding up the planet Earth.  Inside it reads, "Peace On Earth" (or customize with your own text).

If you watch the news or read too much of it on the Internet, it isn't hard to think sometimes that this world is going to hell in a hand basket.  And yet in my daily interactions with people and this planet, I don't find that to be the case at all.  I find that in general people are kind, generous and helpful and I find that this world is continually astonishing me with its beauty.

Perhaps it is because good in people and beauty in nature is the norm that we find evil and disaster so noteworthy and fascinating at times.  Certainly we need to be aware of these things, if only so that we can respond to these aberrations with our innate goodness, and we always do.

So while my painting shows one angel holding up the world, she is symbolic of millions.  The world is indeed in good hands, it is in ours.
