HOPE

I just finished this collage a few minutes ago. It's for my sweet girl (who has bronchitis right now, poor thing). I think I will hang it in her room. I thought about selling it at a Rett Syndrome fundraiser, but I'm not sure anyone else would want it with the picture of my daughter's hands. Besides, I'm not sure I could give it up. If you want to know more about Rett Syndrome you can go here or here.

I've been using the phrase "Holding hope in her hands..." a lot lately. A classic symptom of Rett is wringing or clasping hands. Sweet girl's hands are always together and I like to think they are that way because she is holding "hope" and doesn't want to let it go. We are hoping for a cure someday so her hands can finally "let go." I also included Isaiah 40:31 "but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint." Her little legs are getting stronger and we believe some day she will walk!

Well, I guess that is all for now. I'll show you another fun project next time. I hope you all have a blessed Sunday!
