Nicole Nordeman

'Bless the day
this restoration is complete
Dirty dusty something must be underneath
So I scrape and I scuff
Though it's never quite enough
I'm starting to see me finally

Gallery of paintings new and paintings old
I guess it's no surprise that I'm no Michael Angelo
Every layer of mine hides a lovely design
It might take a little patience
It might take a little time

But you called me beautiful 
When you saw my shame 
And you placed me on the wall


But he was pierced for our transgressions,
he was crushed for our iniquities;
the punishment that brought us peace
was upon him,
and by his wounds we are 

Isaiah 53:5
