Reassembling, Part 1: Eternity Symbols combined into Cross Statue at Flower Mound Botanical Garden

The following quote rings so true to me “We are remade in times of grief, broken apart and reassembled.” from The Wild Edge of Sorrow by Francis Weller 2015 page 1

This series is how our trip to Texas to visit Bryan and Sarah, and our grandchildren Tyler and Colin, was/is such a precious part in my slow “reassembling.”

Below is a small statue at the Flower Mound Botanical garden that has very strong symbolic and personal meaning to me. A cross made up of two eternity Mobius symbols at right angles to each other.

I am Christian (and Buddhist, and Native American believer, and transcendentalist). The cross is a powerful symbol to me.  It reminds me of my loving and caring God.  In Revelation 21:4 it says “He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.” That statue moves me and gives me hope that my tears will also be wiped away.
Making the cross out of two eternity signs at right angles to each other, made up of Mobius symbols is also fascinating and deeply moving to me at very deep levels. There is no finding of an end to a mobius symbol, it goes on forever, and to have twoMobius symbols at right angles to each other adds yet another 90 degree dimension to a never ending eternity.
For me this statue is a deep symbol of eternal love that is far beyond my comprehension in this limited body and mind and eternal soul. I see it, don’t fully understand, but am deeply moved.
