Wordless Wednesday: Mary

Serene beautiful Mary who has been in our garden for twenty years.
I am linking to Wordless Wednesday
Here is quote from Saint Therese of Lisieux, April 1895, which has the image of a shower of roses.
"I have given nothing but love to God and He will repay with love. After my death I will let fall a shower of roses."
I first read this quote quite a while ago on the blog Shower of Roses

Hi Terra - what a beautiful sculpture reminding you of so much during that twenty years. The quote from Saint Therese of Lisieux is wonderful and uplifting to read at any time ... I'll remember that - cheers Hilary

Yes - 'serenity' sums her up nicely.

What a beautiful sculpture, Terra! Just her quiet presence must be a reminder to engage in contemplation. And St. Therese is one of my favorite saints! Thanks for your visit today!

I live your Mary statue, and thanks to you I just discovered the Shower of Roses blog. It's beautiful and I like it a lot even though I have almost nothing in common with the author.
