Heaven’s Heart – A Mother’s Journey

From the “Corridor of Father General” series of artwork, here is “A Mother’s Journey”.

A mother carries her child. She is all that the babe knows. As the little one is nestled in the blankets, we can only hope that they are safe. Safe from the cold, safe from sadness, safe from starvation, war and sickness. We must provide for our mothers, so that every child can be secure; we must be their flock and protect them from the wolves.
