The woman works in wood

The exhibit at church (St. Mark's, Glen Ellyn) offers Sacred Icons by Mother Magdalena until Advent. They are stunning. Simply stunning. Every day when I walk in to church I choose an icon to spend time with. Then the day continues as it has begun.

The woman works in wood
Discarded wood
Thrown away
Odd old pieces.
They carry with them
Of holy people
Pictures already there
To be drawn out
Noticed and written
Edged in gold
Stamped in silver
The woman works in wood
There are saints contained
In the wood
They must be written
So more will see.
