Sleep My Child

  • by

When I first seriously thought of guardian angles I was about 16. I figured my maternal grandmother was around, protecting me. I was only 5 when she passed away. I hardly remember her. I know her from photographs, the many paintings that she created and from a vague understanding of how difficult her life must have been.
More recently I have remembered a woman I knew in Boston. She was such a force who shared her faith through song. We visited with a friend about 4 months ago who had her sing in the church where he was the organist. We had all witnessed the strength of her voice in our own Sunday meetings. He told us about the reaction of those in attendance at this other church and the spirit she brought to those meetings. Once, while driving to a choir rehearsal I thought of her, remembered her voice, her strength and her love.

  1. This image is calming, a little spooky and comforting all at the same time. Love what you wrote and love how that idea was carried out in the image. The blurring really adds to the feel. Wonderful post!

  2. Tender, loving, peaceful and just a tad haunting. Love how you portrayed the guardian angels in this image. Well done!

  3. I really like the translucent and blurry effects you have used in this image to add that extra supernatural dimension to this image. It ties in perfectly with your thoughts and becomes beautiful with those sweet serene faces of the children.

  4. I do believe in Angels and I am trying to teach that to my son. They are protectors and we must talk to them when necessary, they will help us find our way.
    I love your post and of course the loving feel of your image.
