Capture Your Grief-Day 27

CAPTURE YOUR GRIEF 2012 Photography Project 
Day 27: Artwork
October 27, 2012 ♥

Day 27. Artwork: Share some artwork that reminds you of your baby/ies/child/ren or something that was created for them by you or someone else.

There are a few beautiful pieces of artwork that are very precious to me.

The picture on the top left is of a painting that I found at the Tiny Dream ShopIt is amazing how perfect it is for me. When I saw it, I just knew right away I had to get it. Not only does the girl look like me with brown hair, but I have both a son and a daughter in Heaven, which the blue and pink butterflies symbolize. It's like it was made for me! :) 

The bottom left picture is a gorgeous drawing which my friend Rachel gave me. Rachel was in the same semester at Ellerslie as my sister. I went to visit my sister in Colorado for about a week and a half and had the blessing of sharing my story with the ladies. On the day we were leaving, I found this drawing waiting for me in my sister's room. Rachel is such a talented artist and I will forever treasure this drawing that beautifully portrays the sacred time of carrying life within. I am still trying to think of a special place for the drawing.

The top right photo is a drawing my best friend Kala drew for me for Lily's 1st Heavenly Birthday. It really looks like me because I wear a bun in my hair all the time lol. And how powerful and beautiful the image of me handing my baby back to Jesus, fully trusting she is in good hands. The Cross is in the background, symbolizing my assurance that I will be with Lily and Jesus one day.

The bottom right photo is a picture my mom showed me shortly after losing Lily. We were feeling really down one day and started talking about all the people we know with babies in Heaven. We like to think that our babies know each other and that one day we will get to raise them together on streets of gold! My mom remembered this card that day and it lifted our spirits! I hope it blesses you as well. :)

There are other pieces of artwork that remind me of Lily, such as the drawings of Jesus holding a baby. I also consider my scrapbooks I made for Lily to be pieces of art and the poems that have been written for her. My mom has also created a cross-stitch and her beach prayer flag. I treasure all these things!
