Our Lady of Recovery – Redesdale
Exceptional people do exceptional works and here is an art work imbued with so much love and care that I want to share it with the wider community. Ivan Morozoff created an Icon for the Redesdale and surrounding communities affected by the fire on 7th in 2009.
Our Lady of Recovery was presented to the Redesdale Community on Febuary 7th 2010 at the 5pm Anniversary Service at St Laurences Church in Redesdale.
It was standing room only, by the time all manner of people, children and pets crowded in, to witness the blessing, listen to the children sing, and afterwards talk and eat in the Redesdale Hall.
My photo was taken in haste, amidst crowds, and do not do the art work justice. It does include the church and people, as though they are becoming part of the art, as the children’s painting are part of the whole. The children each did a drawing and they surround the main picture, adding piquancy and optimism.
I have a card with the Icon at home and each time I see it I want to share it and let others know of this work .
” When you look upon this Icon give thanks for our Community and its people :
Give thanks for the children who are its future.
Remember to pray for all those recovering from the Feb. 7th fires:
Remember with love all people and help when you can.”
Reference for text – 2 Corinthians 1 :3-4 “Written by Ivan Morozoff (the artist) with the thanksiving tokens by the primary school children of Redesdale, Mia Mai and Barfold .”
The anniversary gift of thanksgiving honours the Fire brigade members of Redesdale and other places and also the volunteers and helpers of our Community who assissted during the fires of Feb 7th 2009.
