With this piece, I share my heart with you. My story is much like yours, I’m sure ~ it is full of loss, hope, pain, mercy, and love but most of all, it’s full of God. This little cardinal was one of the most difficult designs I’ve worked on because, gosh, it’s hard to create a piece when the emotion it evokes is so real and so raw. If I’m honest, it’s hard to share this bittersweet story. It makes my heart feel like it’s going to burst and makes my eyes well with tears until there’s just no stopping the river. But, the tears that were once filled with sadness have evolved into wonder and awe of the beauty the story holds.
