Description

The English Dictionary defines contemplation as:

  1. thoughtful or long consideration or observation
  2. spiritual meditation esp (in Christian religious practice) concentration of the mind and soul upon God
  3. purpose or intention

I am so grateful God seeks us out and speaks to us in so many ways such as: relationships, experiences, the Holy Bible, sacred writings, through our senses, nature, music and visual art… My hope for these contemplation cards is that they will encourage listening prayer and meaningful conversations with God.

These four paintings were done as visual forms of prayer and praise. Each one has its own process and story. The card with text includes a brief story of each one on one side and suggested Scripture verses from the Holy Bible on the other. Using the contemplation cards could be a similar process to “Lectio Divina”, Latin for “divine reading”, letting God speak to you through Scripture, taking time to be quiet with it, looking  deeper, asking questions, mulling it over, and responding to what God is saying through it. These images could add “Visio Divina”, Latin for “divine seeing”, to the contemplation process, letting God speak to you through the images, asking, and responding in prayer and gratitude.

    Far surpassed my expectation!!! The colors are brilliant, the cards are high quality, and I received them in only a few days!! The background paragraph and following scripture verse for each card allows you intimate viewing of Valerie’s process and opens up each painting for your own contemplation. Absolutely no reason to hesitate on the purchase of these; I suggest getting enough to keep, in addition to the ones you will want to share!!!
