Your life can change in a matter of seconds...one minute your fine, the next your seriously injured.  Your life as you knew it is gone.  You think, I can beat this...it's just temporary...I'll get better...but this injury takes a very long time to heal.  Some people are damaged more then others.  One thing that stayed the same for me was God, His Son & the Holy Spirit...they never left me.  Jesus gave me His precious Mother who never leaves my side.  I am forever grateful to God.  I continue to put my healing in His hands.  If I am meant to be active again...I know God can make it happen.  All my Love, Prayerflowers.

 

 


My Story

I was raised Catholic in a convent like setting home with nuns until I was 14.  When I was 15 years old I wanted to become a nun, my father  would not have it.   At 17 the Nun that I thought was my mom...died suddenly.  I know she continued to pray very hard for me, because I continued to have even a stronger devotion to Jesus & Mary. 

I did marry, I have a wonderful husband, precious children and grandchildren.  There are so many stories I could tell you...but for now I will share how a friend showed me to express the Jesus that was in me through art.

    
           
Offering my flowers to God (1992)             

That's me up there the very first time I described my feelings in art form.  I was giving our precious God a bouquet of Flowers. 

Flowers he had given me in the form of my Husband, Children, Love ones, Friends, care takers, priest, and co-workers.

That day...my heart was so overwhelmed with thanksgiving...I wanted God to have all of the flowers He brought in my life...for Him to bless them in a very special way.

As a result of my gratefulness I wanted to help bring as many flowers to God as I could...the lost, lonely, frighten, confused & forgotten.  
I made another attempt to put it into art form...


Picking flowers to bring to Jesus. (1993)

That was all I did for a very long time...God led me in a direction of expressing my art more animated as I found myself performing & teaching Mine in scripture skits for adults & youth.

In 2003...I was on my way home from work and a truck carrying roof trusses swirled out of his lane into mine.  The trusses hit my car in the rear spun around and hit the driver's window.  I was told I missed dying by 2".   This accident left me with injuries primarily a brain injury.   It was very difficult for me to talk very long without stuttering.

 It has taken me a long time to get to the point to write this story.  Somehow I knew I had to share with others like myself...
that may need inspiration and hope. 

In therapy, I was told that art and journaling would be very good for me.   I found when I would pray I would get a picture from God. 

As I get pictures...I try to draw.  I don't get them every time I pray.  But when I do get a picture...it is very special to me and to whomever I pray for.   May God Bless you and give you hope that through all things... God can help you overcome.

I did not draw the below print but I feel it is very uplifting...and goes with this scripture. 

More pictures to come...as I am able I will try to post the picture and story behind them.

Love,
Prayerflowers

About Me Pre-Injury
by Prayerflowers

This is one of my favorite scriptures....

Before my Injury I was frequently referred to as the “energizer bunny”.  I worked full time as well as being very involved in church.  Over the years (depending on the ages of my children and my availability)  I was in the choir; taught CCD 2nd grade First Communion Classes, assisted with the youth ministry, and  Eucharist Minister for over 20 years.  

I developed and organized monthly meetings for single mothers with children we called the group "Gathering of Hearts".  I guess that is why I put that name onto the prayer forum, that is what we are hearts gathered together to pray. 


Me with a pink wig and flowered hat I made.

I developed a mime/clown ministry; performed and trained for the churches in the diocese for over 5 years.  Skits on retreats for 1st communion and reconciliation and the mime the Passion  on Palm Sundays after the gospel for a few years, teaching different groups of youth to be each year. 

Visit hospitals and nursing homes with the youth.  I taught seminars that were held for “Life in the Spirit” my section of the course was on God’s Love. I was asked to do the seminar and never felt confident no matter how many times I was asked.

 Outside of church I volunteered for the Family Counseling Center.  A Hospice volunteered as a cook.  I would cook meals at home and bring them to families who were losing or had lost a loved one.    

In 1995, I volunteered with the Mother Teresa of Calcutta Missionary of Charity Sisters.  I was blessed to have met her and get her blessing.  They opened a house in my town back home.  That was one of my favorite volunteer jobs.  I would go over there after work or on my days off and take them places and pray with them.  Also, when I was able, I assisted with an after school program they started in their neighborhood.  They open a home in the worse part of the city to be with the “poorest of poor” as Mother Teresa would say.
