Mortality & Tile

We are nearly finished with the tiling in our new home! Yay! This is a picture of our dry fitting on the floor of our wonderful friends the Wardles we are staying with. They are so incredibly kind to us. We are so blessed!
In Tibet, ancient ruins of temples were discovered with walls of beautiful, colorful murals, which had deliberate mistakes or imperfections painted into the designs to signify the perfection of God and the mortality of man. 
Well, our tile has those—though not intentional. I might show an after picture, if I ever have time to take one. Anyway, now whenever I look at my tile I will think of the Tibetians, and rejoice in the perfection of my Lord, while recognizing my mortality and need for His atonement! (Man I wanted this tile to be PERFECT!)
