HERE COMES THE SUN


We are at the half way point between Winter Solstice and Spring Equinox.
For centuries Christians have celebrated this time with a celebration of lights
called Candlemas. This is the challenge this week over at Inspiration Avenue, hosted and co-hosted by Hettienne and Gemma.


I have chosen to make this mixed media collage candle to celebrate St.Brigid of Ireland. She was known for many things, among them compassion and charity. Aside from St.Patrick, she is one of the most revered Saints in all of Ireland. To learn more about her, you can read it here: http://www.saintbrigid-canton.com/SaintBrigid.html


The words at the bottom of the candle say: St.Brigid of Ireland, Teacher of Compassion, Lighting the way for new life and charity.




Thank you for stopping in and be sure to roll over the title of this post and see what's shining over at Inspiration Avenue this week!
