this painting is named after the LDS french cantique (hymn book) #179 (music by antonin dvorak -- new world symphony). the hymn is almost a backwards prayer: our heavenly parents speaking to one of their children -- asking if this child remembers their dinine parents, being in their arms not so long ago, reflections of their heavenly home, why they chose to come here, and that eventually they will once again be together.
the piece depicts the "tree of life" or "asherah": an ancient symbol of our heavenly mother and . it is also the companion piece to “asherah's midnight bloom," that is found in the book "a girl's guide to heavenly mother".” the companion piece is a reminder that our mother blooms wherever SHE is planted...no matter how much light shines on or around HER. for too long, we felt we couldn’t speak of HER or ask about HER. and yet, she patiently loved each of us and shined her light & love over us. this sister piece represents how we are finding ways to bring HER into the light...that we REMEMBER and KNOW HER and SHE can bloom fully in that bright light of day...no longer hidden. HER daughters are reaching, HER sons are reaching, and our FATHER, the second tree, is beaming.
