Journeying Toward the Light

I drew this picture yesterday with oil pastels. I was mimicking a piece from Jacob Lawrence's Migration of the Negro Collection of 1940. 

My version of the picture is the titled, the Migration of the Lost Youth.. Together we are moving onward and upward. I am guiding them to the Light.

It's symbolic of my journey as a woman and an educator. 

I've come a mighty long way....
and I still have a long ways to go. 

I am forever praying that the Creator continues to give me the discernment to know His voice from my own, 
guide my steps so that I may fulfill His will, 
and allow His light to shine through my work.
