Wendy's Quilt

(Pieced Maple Leaf with owl medallion)


Here I am Lord,
Cold Feet and tear stained cheeks
Haven't kept me.

What am I wanted for?
What is my purpose for Thee?

It isn't to learn to be a wife and mother--
At least not only--
If it were so wouldn't I be still?

I am Wendy the wanderer.
I am Gwendolyn, the new woman.
I am Mommy, security, love.
I am Daughter, tears, fears, and stregnths too.
I am Widow, the lonely, the brave.
I am, I am --What am I? Who?

What do You want of me?
Who do you want me to be?
What do I want of myself?
