He was coloring a castle and I asked him if he was a king. His response, “No. God’s not finished yet.” He’s four.
Well, okay. There is no response to that, is there? What if we used that on ourselves? When we make a mistake. When we take a bad picture. When we feel like a failure. When we beat ourselves up. What if we just let it go confidently knowing that God’s not finished yet.
What a relief that would be. Not to say that we shouldn’t do our part or what we need to do. But it certainly does take some pressure off our human shoulders. At least I think so.
What do you think?
Today’s image is one I thought about taking a few days ago when I spent the morning sharpening colored pencils for my son who was coloring in a fun workbook. I liked all the colors of the pencils when they were lined up next to each other randomly. I also liked how they were all different sizes and colors. Reminded me of our world and creative artists. We can all bring color and light into the world, but we each do it differently and are at various stages in our journey…some starting out, others near the end. Some interesting ideas to ponder.

Images: Looked at a gallery of Water Reflections. Very peaceful and calming. I just love the water. Guess it’s the Norwegian blood and native Seattleite in me.
