About my Angels
Several years ago I was the caretaker for my aging mother-in-law. She was the most cantankerous and loveable little lady I have ever know. We became as close as any two people can who are so far apart in age. When she passed, I felt a void even though I have a great supporting husband and family. I missed her terribly.
I came up with the idea for “Burdened, but with Hope” in a dream. (Lots of my creative endeavors spring forth from my vivid and lengthy dreams. But more about my dreams later.)
Each wing of my Angels are made up from headlines cut from daily papers. The headlines pertain to the burden or subject of each Angel. “Burdened, but with Hope” consists of the all to often headlines of war, murder, theft, disease and such. But mixed with it are the headlines of good Samaritans, medical cures and other examples of Hope. I also worked into it the wording of The Lord’s Prayer. I felt my burden lifted upon its completion and was further elated when a Christian Healing Center purchased it for their entry way.
Most of the Angels have been sold. Only “Solitude” and “Forgiven” remain in my possession. “Haven of Hope” is in a children’s hospital in Georgia while “Burden of Breast Cancer” found a home in Tennessee with a Susan G. Komen for the Cure group. “Music of Hope” was commissioned with the gentleman’s wife’s face as the angel. If you have an idea for your own Angel, drop me a line, I’m open to all ideas.
