Why a peacock?


Because I love blues and greens.

Because I really love blues and greens.

Because these colors remind me of

peace, the sea, the sky, infinity…

I had a waking prayer dream once on a retreat.

In that dream,

God placed upon my shoulders

a mantle of white,

lined in an wave pattern of

sapphire blue, turquoise, teal, emerald green, and violet.

This mantle was given to me to be my garment of peace.

I don this garment in its many varied renditions on a regular basis.

Staying in the Peace of Christ is how I desire to live.

And so, I am attracted to the peacock.

More on that to come…

I am a fabric artist and a professional minister in the Catholic Church. I am married for 40+ years to a most fabulous man. We have 4 adult children, 2 daughter-in-laws ( who we also consider to our children!) and 4 grandbabies. I love to weave, paint silk, sew and design garments for myself; bead, read, write and color. I am also a spiritual Companion/Director and have a special place in my soul for women who are healing and in need of healing from trauma and abuse. I love coffee, quiet reflective prayer time at my kitchen table and long walks to breathe in the Holy Spirit. I would like to learn how to spin yarn and will someday create a spun, hand dyed/painted, beaded, woven fabulous garment of peace!
