Not My Will But Thine by Susan Edwards
About this Image:
Father, if thou be willing, remove this cup from me: nevertheless not my will, but thine, be done. - Luke 22:42
Art and music have been vehicles enabling Susan Edwards to share her artistic expressions of faith. Her husband, David, her partner in rhyme, co-creates with her the music and lyrics to each song, which Susan records and performs. Here’s an excerpt from the song written for this painting. The song’s entitled, The Olive Tree: © 2014 by Susan and David Edwards The ancient olive tree, bent, as if in grief and pain, Witness to the crimson drops that fall like heavy rain. These drops from Jesus fall on the parched and thirsty soil, Near the press where fruit is crushed for precious healing oil
About the Artist:
Susan Edwards was born in a small town in Alberta, Canada. As a child she moved to Lehi, Utah, where she still resides. She is the mother of four beautiful daughters and twelve amazing grandchildren. For the last five years she has been working with a team of artists, painting temple murals. Susan likes to give her viewers a multisensory experience. This is why she, along with her husband, her “partner in rhyme,” writes, records and performs songs to accompany her religious art. She feels that the lyrics and music add to the spiritual and emotional experience of her art. Susan wants her art and music to testify of God’s love and truth for His children.
