Today I am very grateful to our Lord for blessing us with rain in a time that we needed it the most. I am also heartbroken for all the people who lost their houses during the storm and do not have any shelter during these extreme weather conditions. Sometimes we as humans do not understand all the good and bad things happening in our lives, we can only pray that our loving God will cover us with His love and protect those who need it the most.

I decided to paint a King Protea in remembrance to all the people that lost everything during the storm in Cape Town and during the devastating fires in Knysna.
