THE EMBLEMS

Here are some thoughts behind creating these EMBLEMS. We hope they take you somewhere and inspire you. We'd love to hear what they mean to you.

LIFE EMBLEM TREE

Breathing. Crawling. Walking. Running. Working. Sleeping. Smiling. Laughing. Crying. Seeing. Hearing. Tasting. Smelling. Feeling. Adventuring. Overcoming. Growing. 
YOUR ROOTS ARE DEEP, FED BY THE RIVER OF FRIENDS AROUND YOU. YOUR GROWTH IS STRONG AND SURE. YOUR BRILLIANCE MAGNIFIES WITH EACH NEW SEASON. YOUR BRANCHED ARMS ARE FULL OF A MILLION GIFTS STRETCHING OUT FURTHER AND FURTHER TO OFFER LIFE TO THOSE AROUND YOU.

STRENGTH EMBLEM BOLT

Tough. Sound. Solid. Determined. Resolved. Enduring. Lasting. Faithful. Persevering. Serving.
YOU WILL NOT BREAK. YOU ARE STEADFAST AND FAITHFUL. LIKE ROLLING THUNDER YOUR STRENGTH SURROUNDS THE ONES YOU LOVE - ENDURING HARDSHIP AND BREAKING THROUGH THE WALLS OF INJUSTICE AND SUFFERING. RARELY SEEN, MORE OFTEN FELT AND HEARD. YOUR STRENGTH IS A WELLSPRING FLOWING FROM YOUR INNER SPIRIT, FULL OF GRACE AND TRUTH. READY AT A MOMENTS NOTICE, IN AN INSTANT YOU PROVIDE HELP AND PROTECTION. YOU RESCUE THOSE IN NEED. TO PUT IT SIMPLY...YOU ROCK!

FREEDOM EMBLEM EAGLE

Bold. Open. Clear. Direct. Generous. Forgiven. Forgiving. Delivering. Liberating. Overcoming. 
YOU TAKE THE LONG VIEW OF LIFE. YOU ARE CARRIED BY THE WIND. YOU KNOW YOUR LIMITATIONS AND YOUR POTENTIAL FOR GREAT THINGS. CONTENT AND CAREFREE. YOU HAVE TAKEN THE LEAP OF FAITH. YOU ARE FREE DOING WHAT YOU WERE MADE TO DO. TRULY FREE. YOU WERE MADE TO FLY. YOU WERE MADE TO SOAR.

LOVE EMBLEM HEART

YOU ARE LOVED. I DON'T LOVE YOU BECAUSE...I LOVE YOU DESPITE...DESPITE HOW WELL I KNOW YOUR FLAWS AND MISTAKES. MY LOVE IS MORE THAN A FEELING. MY LOVE IS A CHOICE AND A PROMISE - PROMISE I WILL KEEP EVEN ON YOUR WORST DAYS. I LOVE YOU FOREVER. I DO.

HOPE EMBLEM GUIDING STAR

YOU HAVE SIGHT BEYOND SIGHT. YOUR HOPE IS A LIGHTHOUSE GUIDING YOUR FRIENDS SAFELY HOME. YOU TAKE THE LONG VIEW OF THINGS. YOU KNOW THAT YOU CANNOT CONTROL THE UNIVERSE, AND YOU ARE OK WITH THAT. YOU ARE CONFIDENT THAT THERE IS MORE TO LIFE THAN ONLY WHAT MEETS THE EYE. YOU KNOW THAT THIS IS NOT ALL THERE IS, THIS IS NOT THE END - THAT ONE DAY ALL OF YOUR HURTS WILL BE HEALED, ALL WRONGS WILL BE MADE RIGHT, AND ALL OF YOUR DREAMS WILL COME TRUE.

PEACE EMBLEM MOUNTAIN WAVE

YOU ARE THE MOUNTAIN THAT CANNOT BE MOVED. YOU ARE THE CALM IN THE EYE OF THE STORM. YOU RIDE THE BARREL OF THE WAVE AND STAY FOCUSED AND STEADY. YOU FIND COMMON GROUND AND SEE PAST OUTWARD DIFFERENCES. YOU KNOW THAT DEEP DOWN WE ALL JUST WANT TO LOVE AND BE LOVED. YOU FEEL THE HURT OF OTHERS AND OFFER HELP IN THE TIME OF NEED. YOU WIPE AWAY THE TEARS. YOU ARE SERENE IN THE MIDST OF THE RAGING SEA AROUND YOU.
