The theme for this week's Wednesday Stamper is Angels. I have some really gorgeous photo angel stamps from both Oxford Impressions and The Stampsmith. I was tempted to use one of my favorites - an adorable little girl angel. But I spotted this house that I had left over from a swap and really wanted to use it. I knew the cute girl would be a mismatch so I decided to try out an Oxford Impressions stamp I'd never used. When deciding on what else I would use, a piece of a Maya Angelou poem was running through my mind:
Here on the pulse of this new day
You may have the grace to look up and out
And into your sister's eyes, into
Your brother's face, your country
And say simply
It is a piece from her inaugural poem from 1993. It's a beautiful, uplifting poem and I am feeling particularly uplifted right now. I found her poem entitled Touched by an Angel which fit this theme perfectly. I've used the first portion of it in my piece. Again, it is an amazing poem that brings tears to my eyes. I hope you enjoy how I've used it.
