Abstract/Artist Statement

This is a story of two ladies who share their religious faith. Joyce Espinoza is a minister in Sacramento, California, who came originally from Hong Kong. Although she is young in age, she serves the seniors of her congregation. The other lady, simply called Jing, is a Vietnamese refugee, who rebuilt her family in United State of America. While the life today is often about speed, their religion is more interested in strength and stability than swiftness. We want to find the quickest fix, or shortcut, the on–the–spot solution. We want a sermon, or experiences that will instantly resolve all problems, remove all temptations, and release us from all growing pains. But real maturity is never the result of a single experience, no matter how powerful or moving. Growth happens in a gradual pace. Countless blessing, it is a part of our experience into our life. While we always remember all the sorrows, it is easy to forget all the blessings that we have received. We should always strive to remember them in our lives. Often people only remember the pain, suffering, sorrow, or sadness and thus count LESS of the existing blessings. Some people measure their lives by sorrows and pains, while others count their blessings; this is the most important way. The story of two ladies demonstrates how to rejoice in our life. “Countless Blessing”, invites us to remember the countless of blessings in our lives.
