I am nothing special....

“I am nothing special, of this I am sure. I am a common man with common thoughts and I've led a common life. There are no monuments dedicated to me and my name will soon be forgotten, but I've loved another with all my heart and soul, and to me, this has always been enough..” 
― Nicholas Sparks, The Notebook

I might have to do a repaint of this one. Not sure where my original photo is, but  a new sketch might provide new thoughts and i would love to see how I approach a second paint on it. 

Not often in life do we get 'second chances'.  When God does allow a 'second chance' we best be ready.  I have been guilty of not seeing the handwriting on the wall when he has sent a pretty clear message but my mind is in thought somewhere else and I miss it.  Have you ever done that?

"God said to Solomon, “Since this is your heart’s desire and you have not asked for wealth, possessions or honor, nor for the death of your enemies, and since you have not asked for a long life but for wisdom and knowledge to govern my people over whom I have made you king,"  2 Chronicles 1:11
