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!)
"Language does have the power to change reality. Therefore, treat your words as the mighty instruments they are - to heal, to bring into being, to nurture, to cherish, to bless, to forgive." - Daphne Rose Kingman
"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small doesn't serve the world. There is nothing enlightening about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you." -Marianne Williamson, 1993
"As we seek the Lord's help and in His strength, we can gradually reduce the disparity between what we say and what we do, between expressing love and consistently showing it, and between bearing testimony and steadfastly living it." David A. Bednar
“How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world.” Ann Frank
