Mother and Son (Working Title)

“Mother and Son (Working Title)” is part of a series of portraits whose subjects are refugees from Eritrea. Our WMF Artist Ambassador Karisa Keasey will soon publish this and other works in an upcoming book.


Jesus submitted to his Father as God incarnate to experience life just like us. He also submitted to his very humanity. He experienced every stomach drop, every headache, every tear and heart break — AND WAS VICTORIOUS. (John 16:33)

To submit means to trust fully. And if we are going to make it, we need to trust ourselves to our Father who came here before us and created our inmost being. As a parent cares for their child’s every little need, as the Virgin Mother cared for her defenseless baby wrapped in swaddling clothes on a manger, so our Savior cares about us.

Psalms 121:3 “He will not let you stumble;
the one who watches over you will not slumber.”
