The Painting: This is the beginning piece you might say... the sketch is on and the paint will begin to fly. Stay tuned daily for updates.
The Thought: It all goes back to the puzzle again. Life is a puzzle. Have you ever forced something to work in life? Just like this darn puzzle. We could not find all the outside edges and I contemplated snipping off one of the nubs to make it work. Of course I knew it would not work, but I wanted to try....but we didn't. We found out yesterday after restudying the edges we were only minus one piece not five pieces. We had some FORCED into where they should not be. Terry patiently untangled and resolved the edges to perfection and we could begin the journey inside the edges. He said his dad, Ben, is really good at this. HUMMM...Ben what are you doing today?
Terry jumped in with his new found skills, or maybe I just discovered them... he actually planned out an attack by sorting ALL the pieces flat by color. He used my canvas upside down. (We have only dumped two of them so far.) But stay tuned in our puzzle one as we figure it out piece by piece together. PRAISE GOD it has replaced long spent hours numbingly staring at the computer... or the TV. We did the puzzle last night until almost midnight.
I have decided to apply this new found knowledge to something else in life...so stay tuned for more.
Don't force anything today in your life...let God do it all...let go and let God.
