Weeping Heart Angel

I wanted to share an angel that I worked on over the weekend. 

I am sorry I have been away from my blog for a couple days. I did have some Christmas tutorials and posts scheduled (coming later), but to be honest... I just couldn't sit down to write just yet. My heart is so heavy and sad, I just didn't feel like writing about holiday decor and crafts. I have wanted to hug & hold my kids, celebrate the simplest of blessings, and tell my hubby how much I love him.

My heart weeps for all those effected by the senseless tragedy of Friday...the children, the teachers, their families, the first responders, and the entire community. Being a first grade teacher myself, I can't even begin to imagine the pain and do not even feel I have the ability to express completely how I feel. So I am not even going to try. I am going to continue to pray for all those involved and their families, holding them closely in my heart.

I am hoping that you (and your loved ones) are safe and resting in the blessings of today.


  1. I'm also one with your country in praying for the innocent lives lost and their families.

    Her eyes looks sad but she's still beautiful Jen. As you said, I guess she reflects how you feel right now.

    "love and peace" simple but a great wish we could pray for everyone.

    Wishing you a Merry Christmas Jen and please extend my warm wishes to your entire family.

  2. Your Angel is divine Jen... she appears deep in thought... such tragedy and sadness brings us back to the core... of being grateful for our loved ones... and of what is really important... feeling that way too...

    Jenny ♥

  3. Your angel looks like a lot of us feel these days. Sad, uncomprehending, wishing there was more love and peace in this world instead of all this senseless violence. This is a lovely way to express your feelings. hugs, ♥

  4. Your angel is gorgous! And exasperated, which is what I guess a lot of us are feeling on top of all the sadness and pain. Keep hugging those kids! xoxo
