Strangers in this World
In “Strangers in This World,” the saint poses with her dog in front of a window with a view of the surface of a planet or moon.
The setting is an imagining of the idea of being a stranger or alien in this world from Hebrews 11:13 that says: “All these people were still living by faith when they died. They did not receive the things promised; they only saw them and welcomed them from a distance, admitting that they were foreigners and strangers on earth.” The dog is a symbol if faithfulness which we need with us constantly as we navigate the paths of our lives. In her cameo is a butterfly which is a symbol of the resurrection and renewal. Life may take us places we never imagined possible, but remembering that there is more beyond this mortal body helps us to make the most of what we are given and to make a positive effect on the lives of those around us.
