This is beautiful! The expression on her face is very mysterious. I wonder what she's thinking of. Ah, you're so talented.

I love it~ the lighting is good and I like the black background. Makes me wonder what she is looking at or whether she's in concentration.

I would have made this the cover of my teen ink book, but it didin't relate at all to my story. The only similar occurence is that my main character is blonde. :( But I think this is beautiful. :)

Sorry about the typo in the verse, it's actually "When Jesus came into the coasts...."

Proverbs 8:12, 14 "I wisdom dwell with prudence, and find out knowledge of witty inventions. Counsel is mine, and sound wisdom: I am understanding; I have strength."

I know I have already said a lot but I have something else I want to share with you: Matthew 16: 13-17 "When Jesus came tino the coasts of Caesarea Philippi, He asked His disciples, saying, Whom do men say that I the Son of man am? And they said, Some say that thou art a John the Baptist: some, Elias; and others, Jeremais, or one of the prophets. He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am? And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God. And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Bar-jona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven."

So this said, I realize that no matter what I, LifeWrite, or anyone else says, the choice is your's in the end whether or not to believe. I can go on and show you more scripture but only God can truly help you see. So I ask you to consider these words not on my account, but your own.

Now as to Jesus being dead, as Lifewrite said, He is indeed alive. In Matthew 27, the account of Jesus' crucifixion is told and also His ressurection; I'll start off with the verses dealing with His burial, verses 57- 60 "When the even was come, there came a rich man of Arimathaea, named Joseph, who also himself was Jesus' disciple: He went to Pilate, and begged the body of Jesus. Then Pilate commanded the body to be delivered. And when Joseph had taken the body, he wrapped it in a clean linen cloth, And laid it in his own new tomb, which he had hewn out in the rock: and he rolled a great stone to the door of the sepulchre, and departed." The day after the burial Pharisees and chief priests went to Pilate remembering that Jesus told them that he would raise again on the third day. They however, thought that Jesus' disciples would steal His body in the night so that on the third day they could go through the city exclaiming "He is risen from the dead", so they (priests and Pharisees) commanded Pilate to make sure the tomb was secure. Pilate listened: verses 65 and 66 "Pilate said unto them, Ye have a watch: go your way, make it as sure as ye can. So they went, and made the sepulchre sure, sealing the stone, and setting a watch." On that third day, two women, Mary and Mary Magdalene went to visit the Jesus' tomb and encountered a miracle: Matthew 28: 2, 5-10 "And behold, there was a great earthquake: for the angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat upon it. (vs. 2) And the angel answered and said unto the women, Fear not ye: for I know that ye seek Jesus, which was crucified. He is not here: for He is risen, as He said. Come see the place where the Lord lay. And go quickly, and tell His disciples that he is risen from the dead; and, behold, He goeth before you into Galilee; there shall ye see Him: lo, I have told you. And they departed quickly from the sepulchre with fear and great joy; and did run to bring His disciples word. And as they went to tell His disciples, behold, Jesus met them saying, All hail. And they came and beheld Him by the feet, and worshipped Him. Then said Jesus unto them, Be not afraid: go tell my brethren that they go into Galilee, and there shall they see me." Verses 16-20 "Then the eleven disciples went away into Galilee, into a mountain where Jesus had appointed them. And when they saw Him, they worshipped him: but some doubted. And Jesus came and spake unto them saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen." Mark 16: 19 "So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, He was recieved up into heaven, and sat on the right hand of God."
