"You keep track of all my sorrows. You have collected my tears in your bottle. You have recorded each one in your book." Psalm 56 v 8
When loss, grief or sadness arrive in someone's life we can find it difficult to know what to say or do. Perhaps initially we may offer a meal or some practical help. A journey of sadness or grief is rarely short lived and it can be very difficult to know how to be a good friend over a long period of time.
These tear drops are inspired by the verse in Psalm 56 v 8 which reminds us that God sees our tears and He will hold them as precious. Perhaps the best gift we can give someone over a long time of difficulty is the reminder that we will also be faithful in prayer, walking alongside without a timeframe, without expecting certain progress but unconditionally.
The teardrop is a single hanging ornament with a powdered glass design in shades of blue. The word "Held" is carved into the side of the teardrop and it is attached to a clear hanging thread.
It comes with a postcard of the verse that inspired it and I can write a gift message on the back if you would like to send this directly to the recipient.
Approximately 10 x 8 cm, each one is hand made so will have slight variations from the image shown.
Meet the Maker
Fused Glass Gifts designed to encourage and inspire!
Hi, I'm Amy, designer and maker at Orchard Art Glass.
I love to create fun and colourful glass pieces in my garden studio in Somerset. On my page you will find a variety of suncatchers, candle holders, ornaments and keepsake cards. Most of my pieces begin with a word, song or verse that sparks an idea for a piece. My hope is that these visual reminders will be an encouragement to you or provide a unique gift for you to bless someone with.
Glass is a beautiful medium in it's own right before I even begin the making process. It speaks to me often about our experience as created beings. God made us and said we were good and beautiful because we are His creation. We live in a fallen world and this causes us to become broken. It is through relationship with our Maker that we are formed, refined and ultimately made beautiful. God often takes the most broken and painful pieces of our lives and works a marvellously beautiful outcome.
In working with glass I see so many parallels as it is broken, crushed, ground, shaped and sifted before being fired at temperatures of up to 800 degrees. This forming and refining process creates a beautiful, shiny, smooth and unique piece.
My prayer is that my pieces will go into homes as a gentle and joyful reminder of the hope we have in relationship with a loving God.
