Day Ten of Twelve Days of Mary

Eternal Mother of mine
I belong to you
as you move in me,
I move in you.

Divine Mother, mother of mine
You hold me in your arms
Loved for evermore
You fill me with my eternal self
Carried in your embrace

A flower for your hair,
Today I paint your feet

The Light of your Grace
Shines in me,
A treasured truth
In my heart’s embrace

A Jewel am I
In the crown on your head 

Forgotten are the dark dreams
Of childhoods past
Now I am yours
Now I belong
For ever more

Divine mother, mother of mine

'remember my heart'

  9. That Mary's love and light may give us peace, a sense of belonging and a chance to cast away the painful memories of the past that may have been following us is a beautiful thought. That her light is that all encompassing is a prayer in itself and food for the journey.

  12. Hetienne, thank you for sharing your shrine with us.. it is beautiful.. did not know you have so many statues hope the doll you bought from me worked out well .. but i think i see the crown on one of your marys in the previous post? off to your other convo on guanyin... you have such a wealth of interesting knowledge ... love your blog!

  13. beautiful creation.. i love the iconic Mary overseeing your shrine from above..

  14. Thank you Hettienne.. the process was a therapeutic journey.. I lost a dear friend this year to Ovarian cancer and wanted to give her girls something to remember their mother by as they are young and their memories may fade.. together several moms wrote stories and memories of their mother and 2 of us painted and drew art. Though the gift was for the girls there was also the therapeutic gift of writing our words. 2 journals (2 girls) were purchased and altered to suit each child. The story pages were painted and gilt, bound within the covers, ribbon page markers were added and the projects tied up in ribbon. We took the dad for coffee and gave each book in a box so other forms of memory could be added. He gave these to the girls on Mother's Day. This woman was a very special friend, the embodiment of all that is Mary, may she rest in peace.
