A Christmas Pysanka: An Angel Message

An ordinary looking egg can become a work of art if held by a gifted artist.  Many years ago, our friend Jim gave us a pysanka--a Ukranian Easter egg decorated with a wax resistant method (batik).  The word pysanka comes from the verb pysaty, which means "to write" as the design on the eggs are not painted on, but written with beeswax.  To give such a gift is a symbol of life which is why the egg must remain whole.

On our colorful red egg, Mary holds her baby close, the Son who brings Life into our world, the living Word Incarnate, engraved in our hearts.

Enjoy your day with the Angels.

Love and joyful blessings,
