Artist's Description

Created: 2012

Words:

My God I give to You this day,
Each word I think and say and pray,
Each action and each small step, on the way.
I give my life to You this day.

Background:

The prayer in this piece, inspired by an old children’s prayer, could be used every day but the thinking behind it is as a prayer to say on each day of Lent. The time before Easter is a chance to prepare for the revelation of new Life. We may take time to consider that victory of life over death, what it means to truly die to self and what difference it makes to the everyday activity of living here in the world.

The blossom flowers, growing from what appears to be the dead branches of a desolate tree, neatly symbolise life persisting in the face of death as we are reminded every Spring when the seemingly barren begins to live again.
