A Pear for Christmas: An Angel Message

While watering the flowers yesterday, an UPS truck pulled up and the carrier presented me with a large box.  To my delight, it was a dozen beautiful pears, a Christmas gift from a friend in Virginia.   The pears reminded me of that well known joyful song, The 12 Days of Christmas, as the pear tree is repeated 12 times.

Just for fun, I looked up the symbolism of a pear.  It represents the womb, the birth and creation of new life.  The pear tree represents the feminine in nature.

A little more research turned up this famous renaissance painting, Madonna of the Pear by Giovanni Bellini (1426-1516).   In Christian symbolism, it appears in connection with Christ's love for mankind.

A pear tree also represents longevity, justice, strength, fruitfulness, and salvation.  

Enjoy your day with the Angels.

Love and joyful blessings,
