Sweet Blogging Friends,
We are all mothers rather to our own children or to someone else's or rather we nuture the individuals we come in contact with everyday......I pray you will have a blessed day and feel the deep and abiding love that God provides to His children....that you will have a day of peace, joy and deep contentment.
This is a fabric collage I did when my youngest when off to college because I was having a really hard time adjusting to not having children at home.....I missed them so much...I will never forget where I was when I felt God gave me this image.....The dark blue at the bottom represents all the deep emotions that I had as a Mother and how they were holding me back from freeing my children...of course the black form is me, the two butterflies represent my two children, the yellow is God's light and the orange and purple represent adulthood....In other words, I am rising out of a sea of deep emotions to release my children into adulthood and into the direct light of God's plans for them.It was very theraputic for me at the time and I still hold this piece close to the heart......
We met their needs when they couldn't, we guided them into the light we knew at the time, we cried when they were hurt and laughed when they were happy, we encouraged them when they lost and took pride in their accomplishments....we prayed for God to guide and protect them and we loved them with all the love that was inside of us.. Then we released them to fly and continue to pray for them that they will have the courage to fly the course that God designed for them before the beginning of time.
"For I know the plans I have for you," declared the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."
Happy Mother's Day to each of you and God's richest blessings on you
Hugs and Blessings,
