Isaiah: Your Name is on the Palm of My Hand

I have not yet painted a painting nor written a piece to help capture the feeling of this important topic. The sentences from the prophet are as follow:

Does a mother forget her baby or a woman the child within. Yet even if these forget, I will not forget my own.

I have written your name on the palm of My hand - Isaiah 49:15-16

I saw the following verses printed on the back of small printed piece with the Police Department of the City of New York on the reverse. It is not something that is intended for general dissemination, but it might as have been, since it carries a powerful message echoing that of the Prophet Isaiah above:


In all the world there is nobody, nobody like you. Since the beginning of time there has never been another person like you. Nobody has your smile, your eyes, your hands, your hair. Nobody owns your handwriting, your voice. You're special.

Nobody can paint your brushstrokes. Nobody has your taste for food or music or dance or art. Nobody in the universe sees things as you do. In all time there has never been anyone who laughs in exactly your way, and what makes you laugh or cry or think may have a totally different response in another, - So - You're special. 

You're different from any other person who has ever lived in the history of the universe. You are the only one in the whole creation who has your particular set of abilities. There is always someone who is better at one thing or another. Every person is your superior in at least one way. Nobody in the universe can reach the quality of the combination of your talents, your feelings. Like a roomful of musical instruments some might excel in one way or another but nobody can match the symphonic sound when all are played together - Your symphony. Through all eternity no one will ever walk, talk, think or do exactly like you. You're special.. 

You're rare and in all rarity there is enormous value and because of your great value the need for you to imitate anyone else is absolutely wrong.. You're special.. and it's no accident you are here. Please realizse that God made you for a special purpose. He has a job for you that nobody else can do as well as you can. Out of the billions of applicants only one is qualified. Only one has the unique and right combination of what it takes and that one is you.. You're special.

Until I do paint a painting to help focus on this important notion of how special each of us is, I hope the photograph taken a while back and which I find inspirational will serve as a visual place holder. I share it and the more important words above in hopes that they invigorate and strenthens any who may come to view and consider them. All the best. - Drew
