Gazebo of Prayer

In my heart, gazebos are truly peaceful places. They seem to exist apart from the world and beacon all of us inside the confines of the small world they capture. Children use them in their fanciful play delighting their young imaginations. Lovers use them as a retreat to share a romantic moment or perhaps a wedding vow. Wanderers use them as a place of refuge, gently sheltering from the day’s brilliant sun. To my artistic eye, this gazebo is a perfect place for those seeking a time of reverent renewal and a moment of solitude to be with their God.

The trees soften the light to create harmonies of shadow and color enhancing the viewer’s experience. One can smell the fragrant floral aromas gently drifting in this small sanctum of solitude. The birds happily sing in the trees as if they were a church choir praising the creator and thanking Him for the grace given to this heavenly garden. The spirit of our Lord fills every moment if we take the time to simply look, listen and allow His presence to fill our hearts and provide guidance. Join me in the Gazebo of Prayer where we can connect with providence often lost in hectic, everyday life. God Bless.

  • Thomas Kinkade has hidden four hearts in this image to signify that it is the fourth image in The Garden of Prayer Series.
  • For Thom, gazebos are a place of peace and a place to connect with providence and in keeping with the traditions of the other two images in this series, Thom created a gazebo make of stone and copper.
  • The use of color, light, and shadow create harmony in this beautiful garden gazebo scene. You can almost smell the aroma of the fragrant flowers and hear the birds singing happily in this serene setting.
  • At the top of the stairs, draped in the soft cascading light, you’ll see a Heavenly figure – Thom leaves it up to you to decide who this could be.
