The Great Puzzle in Painting
“Who in the world am I? Ah, that's the great puzzle.” ― Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland
Just sat on the floor in the entry hall today with Terry sharing about the finding joy again. We will be spending more time over the next few weeks watching our life and tweaking things each day. Not sure who we are right now. It is a puzzle.
There seems to be constant distractions that keep us from laughing and playing coy with each other and really getting in deep again to where we were about 10 years ago. OUCH... for me the last six years it has been FACEBOOK distraction. Egads that soaks so much time out of life. I have been fortunate to spend much less time on it but still love seeing pictures of nieces and nephews and staying abreast with my cousins. Thinking I will reconstruct my page to be more private with only close family and friends and then maybe only visit it once or twice a week.
Television was one of Terry's old distractions. He is not able to watch as much now as he spend most of his day trying to save things around the house from total failure. He has not built models in years and I know he wants to do that again...but we need to find things to do both together and apart that makes us feel satisfied with life... and let us live and enjoy life as God intended.
Spending time with those that are important to you is at the top of our list... and there at the top is my mother. This summer we will celebrate her 87th birthday. God is truly awesome.
Meanwhile we will work on our puzzle, sort the pieces and see if we can put it back together with God's help.
If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you. James 1:5New International Version (NIV)
