Laura Transparent convertedMarked.  By God and by a tattoo artist.

This design went from a sketch to ink in a matter of days.   It is both a reminder for me as well as an opportunity to share.  This art merely puts into ink what has been branded in my heart.  It symbolizes:

{the cross inside the heart}  Jesus,  who lives beyond the cross,  lives in my heart.  

{the heart surrounding the cross}    I am to take up my cross daily (based on Luke 9:23), but no matter the burden I bear, it is small compared to His great love for me. 

{the feather}  He shelters me in his wings (based on Psalm 91:4); a single feather from those mighty wings protects me and stands guard on my heart. 

I have hope, because of my faith, borne from love.
