The Painting: The Painting looks much better in  person. I struggled with the late evening light as I tried to do photos tonight.

The Thought:  There is this box I used through out the move, the "file box".  When we first began to box things in Dallas for the move, I insisted on file boxes for my files and proceeded to use them for my art as well.  The boxes were sturdy with the move.

Yesterday we began breaking down boxes and the little file boxes we decided we would keep.  The first two I built, I built incorrectly. I am not always good at following directions.   So when it came down to reversing the order of the directions, I was challenged. All the double folds in and up and folds back down against each other, left me in a tizzy.

I think life is that way at times too.  We have a situation in front of us and we truly work hard at making things work for the best of our life situation as well as for the best of all folks involved.    Can you truly ever reverse things and unfold what you have done?  Certainly not. That is why it is so important in serving Him that we move forward with our lives. 

We cannot go back and try and undo things we have already done.  Our lives are not like those file boxes.  Cut and bend C and B.  Fold C and B in together and shove Side A all the way through bringing C and B up behind it and then pull it through and lower Side A in between the box.

I pray your today is full of easy folds.

“You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly. Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous man, though for a good man someone might possibly dare to die. But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”- Romans 5:6-8

Laurie, your thought today made me chuckle as it took me back to the day when you and I were on your family room floor, in your other Dallas house, assembling furniture. A sweet memory with my sis.
Love you
Jan

Beautiful painting, Laurie.
Isn't that the truth - once the folds are made - some folds can't be undone but then again, maybe it's just telling us to stop looking back and trying to grasp what has left our hands and to move forward.
