Statue for Theme Thursday...

34
I have been wanting to write a new post for a while, but it has been so busy around here and honestly my brain has been tired. I couldn't decide what I wanted to write about and our stupid internet has been going out off and on forever! So when I saw that Cari's theme for Theme Thursday was statues, I knew that this was the perfect opportunity to get back in the writing saddle again, so to speak. Statues may be a kind of random topic, but I seem to have Cari's addiction to statues and being Catholic is the perfect reason to feed my addiction. So many wonderful saints, so little empty space! lol


This is the statue that I chose for this blog. It is a statue of the Blessed Mother that my grandma, Mema painted. It is in her backyard nestled among her wild flowers and plants. It is in the center of her yard, much as she is in the center of our lives. I always feel as if she is watching over all of us.


One of my favorite parts of the statue is the way that the Infant Jesus is clinging to His mother's hand. I have had my own little ones do that very thing. It serves as a gentle reminder that Jesus allowed himself to become not just a human, but a human in the most vulnerable form, a tiny baby. WOW! 


I just love it.

To see more amazing statues...head over to Cari's.
