  • Who are we to say that we’re not good enough?

    Lately I have taken up a new hobby:  paint pouring.  It doesn’t sound too difficult…how hard can it be to pour paint onto a canvas? But, it turns out that it does take some hard work and knowledge to be able to do it well.  You have to do a little bit of chemistry, a little bit of color combining, and a whole lot of trial and error.

  • Grace Notes

    A week or so ago, I went to a celebration of life service at a church I’d never been to before.
    Behind the altar was a huge glass wall with a huge glass mosaic crucifix in the middle.
    While I waited for the service to start, I studied the crucifix, the intricate pieces of colored glass fit together to form Christ’s body.
    Unlike a jigsaw puzzle, these glass pieces didn’t fit together smoothly and perfectly. The edges appeared to be rough. Perhaps the artist had used broken bits and pieces? I couldn’t tell.
