DIVINE LOVE IN A FRACTURED WORLD
As the Divine resides in Love, and Love resides in us, we are a piece of the Divine that is pulled into the vortex of chaos to bring wholeness - to bring Love to our fractured world.

A NEW BEGINNING
Lake Superior and the North shore has held a spiritual connection for me since I first discovered it when my husband and I first traveled north on an adventure more that 50 years ago. We discovered a quiet spirituality listening to the waves lap onto the shore as the moon rose in the distance. His sudden death in Nov 2015 brought an end to our north shore adventures and our quiet solitude. Looking forward to celebrating the anniversary of his death in November, 2020, I was filled with gratitude for the life we had shared together and a sense of being able to go forward alone. This image spoke to me of the future I could renew with the power of the past and my spiritual connection with Superior.

This piece is a reminder of visits to the North Shore in May when the snow melt waters are swelling the streams.
As I worked on this piece, cutting, grinding, and fitting the glass, I could feel the quiet flow of the waters taking me back to that spiritual connection with nature.

Have you observed a murmuration? An ever moving mesmerizing mystical dance of birds. Flight patterns simply breathtaking. A multitude in which each one is in complete sync as it moves across the sky. God’s show and tell through nature is magnificent. It is not only seeing, it is a feeling - an ever deeper sense of awe and wonder. Like in a murmuration, we are never alone.

Sorrow and loss are integral parts of life. We may feel homeless, as if our home had been torn away, leaving us lost and alone. Through the incarnation, Jesus shared our human feelings and experiences. Perhaps the cross may help us enter into his sorrow and help us unite our sorrow with his. Psalm 91 assures of God’s abiding love: You who live in the shelter of the Lord, who abide in his shadow for life, say to the Lord, “My refuge, my rock in whom I trust!” In God, we will always have a home, no matter the sorrow that meets us in this world.

WHAT THE WORLD NEEDS NOW - COLOSSIANS 3: 12-15
When I drew this in February 2020 there seemed to be so much conflict and meanness in our country, and this was my prayer for reflection and change. It has been a continuing prayer for the past 2 years and helps calm my mind and heart and soul.
"12 Put on then, as God’s chosen ones, holy and beloved, heartfelt compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience, 13 bearing with one another and forgiving one another, if one has a grievance against another; as the Lord has forgiven you, so must you also do. 14 And over all these put on love, that is, the bond of perfection. 15 And let the peace of Christ control your hearts, the peace into which you were also called in one body. And be thankful."
