“God is a thousand times more meticulous with us than even as artist is with his canvas. Using many brush strokes of sorrow, and circumstances of various colors, He paints us into the highest and best image He visualizes, if we will only receive His bitter gifts of myrrh in the right spirit.”Today is my anniversary…a milestone for sure as we almost didn’t make it these 16 years. It seems like many times we hung on by a thread only to have the thread flutter away. They say old love is better than young love and I’ve found it be so. Old love sees the warts, the rough edges, the sin, the annoyances and decides to love and to stay anyway – even when it costs dearly. Through the years, however, colors have been added to this canvas that are richer and deeper than I could imagine. Strange isn’t it how that happens?
I intentionally left the canvas blank so you could imagine the masterpiece he is painting of you.
