Come, Come Ye Saints...

Meet Sarah. She is named for one of my pioneer ancestors. She has on an apron to represent the many duties she would have had to keep her family well and fed. She is carrying a book of hymns to represent her desire to teach her children faith through the joy of music. Her shawl represents her charity and the warmth of her testimony. The cameo represents her heritage. The flowers are cuttings that represent her hope to create a beautiful home in a far away place.

We’ll make the air with music ring,
Shout praises to our God and King;
Above the rest these words we’ll tell—
All is well! All is well!
~William Clayton
