Recently I did a painting for a college student in Iowa to give to his sister. (I’m guessing he must be a pretty upstanding guy:) He and she have a penny story that is very significant to their family. He had a very specific vision of what he wanted the painting to look like and I was glad to make it happen. All of the colors, placement, the verse, even the date on the penny were part of his plan…I’m sure his sister will be touched!
Painting this made me think of my sweet mother-in-law. She also has a penny story that relates to the daughter she lost, Tracy. For her, pennies and butterflies both represent the comfort and reassurance that God sends her. (Matthew 5:4)
If you have a penny story, please share it in the comments below!
