My husband passed away five months ago and i wanted a beautiful piece to sit with a collection of photos and momentos that reminds me that he is always with me. I saw this figurine and instantly knew it was perfect.
When my husband was in the last painful stages of cancer, the Lord gave me a picture in my mind of Himself standing on a rock in the middle of a dark sea. He told me to hold on to Him and not let go. I saw myself as a small girl holding onto His hand. I asked where my husband was in all this and I saw a very poorly small boy on the other side of Him. The Lord had His arm around him and the boy (my husband) was leaning against Him. I looked out to sea and saw a huge tsunami coming towards us. This picture gave me the strength to cope with those awful last days. I know that my precious love is now with the Lord and I am still on that Rock with the Lord. He is sustaining me through the incredibly painful grief that comes after a soul-mate has been torn from you. This piece I saw after we were parted, but I saw it as a sign of God's steadfast and merciful love for us and the enduring and solid love that Cyril and I felt for each other and always will. As my Cyril used to say,"the best is yet to be and all eternity not broken into yet!" God is good! Thank you Susan and may the Lord continue to bless your creativity.
I lost my mom/best friend Nov.26,2012. This particular piece couldn't be any more perfect. I'm very grateful to have found it, it symbolizes my caring, warm, wonderful, compassionate mom to a tee! I just love it, Thank-You, Jodi Perkins
