Of Creation

Daughter, mother, grandmother, child of God's grace
With loving gratitude upon my heart your hand to place
Creation's call and nature's gifts of caring praise
Life's awakenings to fill these bequest of days
A time set aside to hail and in thankful celebration
Mother and the ever present bounty of Creation.

Rose Marie Raccioppi

The Creation of Adam is a section of Michelangelo's fresco Sistine Chapel ceiling painted circa 1511. It illustrates the Biblical story from the Book of Genesis in which God the Father breathes life into Adam, the first man. Chronologically the fourth in the series of panels depicting episodes from Genesis on the Sistine ceiling, it was among the last to be completed.

  1. Hi ROse Marie
    Oh sch beautiful words and image to honor the generations of women - bonded by birth or by nature and wisdom and life. My heart is heavy - as I watch my lovely Mom grow small - fade - I hold on desperately to her soft heart and image - her seasoned hands are cold and small - her blue eyes barely a sparkle - oh but the LOVE - this is eternal - I feel it from her every moment - it lives on - forever - and ever.

    Love Gail

  2. Yes, Dear Gail, As I too, look upon those tender days of youth, the passing years, I too, find that the most enduring sweet savor is the L♡VE known. And so we share... Blessing to you and your MOM.

    With love and peace,
    Rose Marie
