Saint With An Add-A-Bead Necklace #3 – 2007
The saint has the blueness of a contemplative life. She praises God and is dedicated to His service. She is surrounded by stained glass windows that glorify her sainthood. The Add-A-Bead Necklace comes from an experience in my life. Years ago, my Mother was given a gift from my sister, a chain that you could add gold beads to as an ongoing gift. I too jumped on the opportunity to build on that gift until my Mother had a complete gold bead necklace. The thought of giving a gift consistently that someone really wanted touched me in a profound way. Isn’t that what gifting is all about? Giving something that another person not only wants but also needs to nourish the soul?
