The constant stars are a reminder of God's promises, his goodness and his omnipresence.

The circle, without beginning or end, is a personal symbol of the resurrection and this work is a thanksgiving for this remaking both strange and familiar. A ring of stars celebrates the death of our "old self" which gives birth to our "new self".
