The Painting: Coming soon at an easel near you.... these are sketches on the canvas done with a loose charcoal. It makes it easy to wipe the canvas if you want to redraw an area. This horse is drawn whimsically out of my head.
The Thought: Youngest daughter and I have been working on a 2500 piece puzzle on the dining room table. Dad jumped in yesterday as we are still sorting out edges. That is how I start at least. Dad likes to do "areas" so he began sorting a different direction.
I painstakingly study the box top picture and begin building my edges noting all the tiny detail to match up even one piece...yes it is a left brain take over. We still do not have the edges put together.... but this morning I lingered a moment with hot tea in hand and spotted a smooth edged end piece on the top of the pile. Before me were 30 misc pieces some pieced together for the bottom row but nothing more than three pieces fitting and many variations and combinations of that. Suddenly this one piece fit somewhere and immediately I knew where the pieces were suppose to go. I was able to connect 80 percent of the bottom edge together by the one missing piece. Strange as all the other pieces were there that should have fit, but I didn't see it.
Isn't that how our lives are? We have all the pieces of the puzzle in front of us but we are blind to how to fit them together until that one last piece falls in front of us. Then suddenly it all makes sense. We have that controlling need to have the 'picture' of what we are and what we are doing and we want to lock into that picture. It is all a control issue for us in our lives.
Keep your heart and eyes open today for that one clue missing from something you are facing. It is probably there already and you can't see it. Usually is just right in front of our faces....
Puzzling isn't it? God is good... He knows what the full puzzle looks like for each of our lives. We are working on it without the boxtop as a guide. We must trust in Him that it will all be put together.
"Do not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For everything in the world—the cravings of sinful man, the lust of his eyes and the boasting of what he has and does—comes not from the Father but from the world.” 1 John 2:15-16
