The Enchanted Womb

There are some places, so enchanting, so charming that it has been said that those places, often treasured secrets to a mere few, abound with ethereal beings. These "spirits" are those that bring bounty and richness to every corner. If you're very lucky you've walked through such a place, a garden maybe, a vast field in the middle of nowhere. It is in such places where trees grow with an emerald sheen so bright that they illuminate the flowers and plants. Animals seem tame although they are certainly wild and your mind feels as though a most spectacular dream has come to life before your eyes.
It is where the beauty of God's nature reveals how far it can outshine any man made beauty.
Where you feel a peace inside yourself only second to that peace that comes from watching a sleeping babe.
I hope everyone is headed toward a peaceful and happy weekend. : )

  16. This painting is so beautiful. I looked at it and loved it when you first posted, but didn't have time to comment properly. I love this one! It could have so many meanings for so many people. You are right, there is nothing more miraculous than a baby.
