Woman at the well Diptych is a painting by Joan Columbus
At Jacob's Well
From which she gathered water;
Coming late. An empty vessel.
Not knowing the promise of this font
was also hers to partake.
A mark of the consecrated, dug deep into the earth
Was forsaken by brothers and sisters
For, Jerusalem was the Holy Ground.
She was forgotten --
Deemed too changed to be worthy.
But he waited for her at this place.
He waited, specifically for this woman,
Knowing all she had done.
The Living Water,
Seated upon the symbol
Of the promise,
Picked the forgotten and scorned woman
God is not a temple. Is not a place.
Oh, If thou knewest the Gift of God...
You would drink freely-
Then, making her the conspirator of good news,
I am He. I am here,
Isn't it beautiful? They way He
Loves each one of us?
Knowing all I have done.
