This was originally a commission for a book cover, but many expressed interest in the painting. I think the poem written by my mother captures the spirit of this image best:
I’m called to walk where Jesus walked.
He beckons me to follow.
Straightway to leave my worldly nets,
Discipleship, most hallowed.
Oh, Savior, grasp my sinking hand.
I’ll then be not afraid.
My hand in Thine, with faith divine.
I’ll walk upon the water.
