Luis M. Diaz, In God's Hands
giclees: 8" x 10", 18" x 24", 30 " x 40"

The United States of America dwells indisputably in the omnipotent hands of God. From the moment of its founding on God, America has been explicitly blessed. In turn America has shared its friendship and resources with a world often torn by famine, disease, hunger, oppression and calamity. America's people like others created by God are imperfect. America struggles as a consequence to fully live out the edicts of God and the precepts of its noble Constitution. Not alone in its failings America resides within a world gripped with flawed humanity. That humanity, man with a dark side, often enacts political and physical evils upon his brothers.  The dark side of man with all its fury struck on September 11, 2001 with the intent to destroy America. The failure of the perpetrators to dent democracy and freedom spared planet earth of an irreparable hole on its face. The attack and all the heinous deeds of men, intentional or unwitting, upon their brothers manifest the unfathomable sufferings of God in Jesus Christ who shed his precious blood for all humankind. All peoples and nations remain solidly in God's care. America, with open arms to diverse peoples who reflect the many faces of the Creator, is specially and lovingly caressed. For reason known only to God, America has been enriched beyond others. More has been given to America and more is expected of her.
