The Lady and the Unicorn

I've always loved the Unicorn. This wonderful mythological creature was not only known for the single horn sprouting from its forehead, but it was also thought to have a beard like a billy goat, a lion's tail and cloven hooves. His horn was said to neutralize poison.
The unicorn has been described as fierce yet good, selfless yet solitary. He is mysterious and it is said a unicorn can only be approached a lovely maiden who is pure and chaste. The unicorn is noble, beautiful and illusive--I suppose that is why they are so fascinating.

Daddy Update: The wound specialist believes the bone still exposed in Dad's scalp will most likely heal over by itself without surgery. Dad's tests have come back looking great. Please pray for my parents outlook--it is so hard for them to be away from home so long. We are preparing the house so they can go home sometime mid-September. We are praying we can get it done by that time--Mom must return home so she can teach the first of October.

The beauty of the magical mystical unicorn! And you've captured it so well in your drawing. I'm so thankful your Dad is doing better and your Mom is getting ready to teach again. God sure does work in mysterious ways... hmmm is He part unicorn?... or did He create the mythical unicorn with a little of His image as well? Continued Prayers of Healing, Love and Support for you and yours. Love and Light, Nina P.

Oh, my dear Nina--that is a lovely sentiment--But I think if there was a real Unicorn, he was created by God. I'm of a firm mind our Creator gifted mankind with the imagination to create stories of beautiful beings such as the unicorn. Perhaps in our stories we have endowed the unicorn with some of the Creator's attributes. ((hugs))

What a lovely illustration--I definitely loved unicorns when I was growing up. I seemed to like anything that was related to horses.

I hope all is well with you and that your parents recover quickly.

I love the unicorns, also :)
Your family, as always, are in our thoughts.
It is hard to be away from your own home. My heart goes out to them.
