Courage, Dear Heart by Katie Sahm
18x24 on Canvas - Original Available, contact the artist to inquire.
The title of this painting is from one of my favorite scenes from C.S. Lewis’ Voyage of the Dawn Treader. The sailors of this vessel find themselves approaching a great darkness, an all-consuming black mist with no end in sight. Instead of turning course, the captain decides to go forward into the unknown. Terror and despair gripped the hearts of the men aboard ship and all seemed lost when, despite their efforts, they couldn’t get back to the light of day. Lucy, the youngest on board, in the midst of her fear whispered a prayer that they may be saved. Suddenly, a tiny speck of light appeared with an albatross that flies near Lucy and she hears “courage, dear heart” in Aslan’s voice (who represents the Lord). The bird then guides the ship toward the light and all wondered at why they had been so afraid.
This life is filled with new adventures around every corner, some that delight our souls, and others that cause great fear. In the darkness it is difficult to remember our destination and that all we encounter is passing. The Lord never leaves us to fend for ourselves, He is with us always and gives us just enough light to continue on one step at a time.
"The world is thy vessel and not thy home.”
– St. Therese of Lisieux
