A Chair by Any Other Name….is a Scripture Art Chair!

Old theater chair

A Chair by any other name….is a Scripture Art Chair!  I recently had the pleasure of being asked to donate my artwork by decorating an old theater chair. It was to be  auctioned off by the Pacific Art League of Palo Alto, a local art gallery.  100 artists were selected and given the freedom to use their artistic gifts to decorate a chair as they desired.

I received a green light to incorporate my faith as a Christian, which is a rare thing in the art world.  Often my Scripture art is turned down at art shows because of the images of the Cross or Scripture, which saddens me.  But clearly the Lord was giving me an open door through this project.

My art friend, Sylvia and I, approached this project with excitement, only to

sanding chair

discover the hard work of sanding, priming and painting the chair before we could do our artwork design. I chose to paint mine a watermelon red with my Scripture painting ‘Red Tulips with Forget Me Nots” on the seat. I added James 1:17 (Every good and perfect gift comes from above) and Ecclesiastes 3:11 (He makes everything beautiful in its time) around the painting. Ribbon was added along with my name, website and signature in gold paint.

When I was done decorating the chair, I was pleased to see God’s Glory reflected through Scripture and nature. The mission of my art ministry, Gifts of His Glory. giftsofhisglory.com  is to reflect the gifts of His Glory, His Word and His Creation, in my artwork.  Do you think I accomplished my mission?  Take a peek at the before and after pictures below:

The chairs will be on display at local businesses prior to the auction for publicity.  I ask your prayers for mine to draw attention of an art licensor who would like to license my Scripture paintings and greeting cards. My dream.

Red Tulips with Scripture

I know God “is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine” (Ephesians 3:20) so I am excited to see what doors He will open.

God has gifted me with this new art venue.  If you are interested in having me paint a Scripture Art Chair(s) for you, please contact me at miriam@giftsofhisglory.com or my website giftsofhisglory.com.  My one stipulation is that the chair be ready to be painted with my artistic decor!

L’ Shanah Tovah (Happy New Year) & Introducing My Art Greeting Cards!

Fall Tree New! Scripture Art Greeting Cards at Gifts of His Glory by author Miriam Sarzotti

One of my favorite parts of the Fall season is the Jewish High Holidays that usually start in September with Rosh Hashanah (Head of the Year), followed by Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement) and finally ends with Sukkot (Feast of the Tabernacles).

My dream is to experience them in Israel one day.  They say it is an unforgettable sight to see Sukkot or little tabernacles built in every front and backyard throughout the Land.  Jewish people celebrate the time that God provided for them in the wilderness with temporary shelters, called a sukkah or sukkot. They build their sukkah and then eat and sleep in them during the seven days of the festival. It foreshadows when we will ‘tabernacle’ with God again in Heaven and in His new Kingdom on earth.

What I love most is the promise of a new year and beginning that Rosh Hashanah brings. It is customary to send a greeting card wishing a sweet and prosperous new year.  In keeping with this practice,  I am celebrating the release of my new Scripture art greeting cards, a line of Christian greeting cards that combine my paintings and my love of writing greeting messages! (see below)

Also this year, on September 4th, I will pick up my Zip car and zip up to San Francisco to the Jews for Jesus Rosh Hashanah celebration.I am looking forward to seeing old friends from my time as a volunteer with them doing street evangelism and others from our monthly Chaverah (Fellowship).

I anticipate a beautiful ceremony…the prayers and songs in Hebrew, the sound of the shofar (ram’s horn) being blown as it will be the day Jesus returns for us in the clouds, the humorous and engaging testimony of a Jewish believer in Yeshua (Jesus), and the yummy honey cake and apples dipped in honey (for a sweet new year) at the Oneg (party) following the service.

Last year, what touched me most during the service was the sermon on the books of God. The speaker preached on The Book of Life and The Book of Remembrance that God keeps.

Butterfly Resurrection Cross New! Art Greeting Cards

I was struck that God was an author and writer just like myself!  He wrote the bestseller The Bible, did he not? And to think He writes our names in the book of Life when we accept His Son Jesus as our Messiah.  So when we stand in Judgement before Him one day, He will open His book and see our name and admit us to heaven to be with Him for eternity.

I don’t know about you, but I wonder…Does he use a quill pen? What is the parchment like? Or does He have a laptop?  He must be very busy as He has recorded every day of our lives from before time began. He records every tear we cry, happy or sad. That to me shows a God who cares, who knows our every move, and knows the day He will call us back home to Him.

Is your name written in the Book of Life?  Have you accepted Jesus as your Lord and Savior, asking Him to take your sin and make you a new creation in Him? That is what

Cross with Rose Petals New! Art Greeting Cards

Rosh Hashanah is all about.  Starting over with a new beginning.  On Yom Kippur, which follows 10 days later, we acknowledge the sacrifice and atonement (forgiveness) by Jesus when He died on the cross for our sins.

Would like to pray to ask Jesus into your heart and forgive your sins?  If so, you can pray this prayer and receive salvation.

Dear Jesus:
I admit I am a sinner and am in need of forgiveness.  I believe you died on the cross for me personally and that you were raised from the dead and am in Heaven right now.  I ask you into my heart to take control of my life and to be my Lord and Savior.  Thank you for loving me enough to lead me to repentance and show me my need for you.  Help me become the person you intend for me to become and may your plan for my life come to pass.  I love you Lord and thank you for forgiving me today and giving me the gift of eternal life with you.  Amen.

Welcome to the Kingdom of God! Angels are rejoicing over you right now!
