Under My Mother's Wings

I received an email with this beautiful story that I just had to figure out how to use for wordart. Its pretty long but its pretty... here it is...

A baby asked God, 'They tell me you are sending me to earth tomorrow, but how am I going to live there being so small and helpless?' God said, 'Your angel will be waiting for you and will take care of you.'

The child further inquired, 'But tell me, here in heaven I don't have to do anything but sing and smile to be happy.' God said, 'Your angel will sing for you and will also smile for you. And you will feel your angel's love and be very happy.'

Again th
e child asked, 'And how am I going to be able to understand when people talk to me if I don't know the language?' God said, 'Your angel will tell you the most beautiful and sweet words you will ever hear, and with much patience and care, your angel will teach you how to speak.'

'And what am I going to do when I want to talk to you?' and God replied, 'Your angel will place your hands together and
will teach you how to pray.'

'Who will protect me?'
God said, 'Your angel will defend you even if it means risking its life.'

'But I will always be sad because I
will not see you anymore.' God said, 'Your angel will always talk to you about Me and will teach you the way to come back to Me, even though I will always be next to you.'

At that moment there was much peace in Heaven, but voices from Earth could be heard and the child hurriedly asked, 'God, if I am to leave now, please tell me my angel's name.'

And God said, 'You will simply call her, 'Mom.'

So, I turned it into wings... and created some wordart for ya! I even gave you an example of how I used it. Now, I'll have you know I did not create this for my picture... I created the wordart first and then worked a picture into it. I'm hoping you'll be able to do the same... which is why I left some white areas in the wings where they would "attach" to your photo person. I hope you are able to use it and if you do... please let me know!!!!

Here's the wordart, in several versions. Just click on the photo to be taken to the download page! :D
