Artist, Mary McAndrew, has created this beautiful design using the Celtic Trinity Knot. It’s simple design so delicately colored points us to a powerful and very personal story that can be embraced by all. The Celtic Trinity Knot is a visual symbol of the Christian belief of the Godhead, the Trinity ~ Father, Son, Spirit as ONE. There is really so much in this symbol to see and ponder. The “three pointed” knot has no beginning and no ending. The overlapping spirals come together in the center of the knot which reinforces the strength of being “centered”. The flying doves in the blue sky of the circle lets us know that the Spirit hovers over all of creation bringing beauty and life. This flow of ideas I am sharing only scratch the surface of what would come to me as I meditate upon this design and take time to journal or creatively express them.
I encourage you to create your own design as you meditate upon the beauty of the Trinity in your life and I leave you with this Celtic Blessing…
May the God of gentleness be with you, caressing you with sunlight and rain, caressing you with rain and wind.
May His tenderness shine through you, to warm all those who are hurt and alone.
May the God of strength be with you, holding you in strong-fingered hands. May you be a sacrament of his strength to those whose hands you hold.
May the God of gentleness be with you, caressing you with sunlight and rain, caressing you with rain and wind. Amen.
