This one popped into my head on Sunday after I read Nehemiah 9:17, so I jotted down a quick sketch of the rabbit and snail on the back of a bulletin. This evening (Tuesday) cranked it out in one evening. The whole thing was probably less than two hours, and a chunk of that was figuring out where to put the text. I really love this verse. It shows the character of God in living color.
In retrospect, I probably would use signs instead of banners for the "finish lines" and I wouldn't have the grass overlap the track, but it is what it is.
My favorite part of this is that my 8-year-old son walked up while I was drawing it and said, "Hey, that's Psalm 103:8," and then proceeded to quote the verse to me: "The Lord is merciful and gracious, Slow to anger, and abounding in mercy." Well, not quite the same reference I was using, but I was still a proud papa.
