Salvaging Life

One of the great things about watercolor is that you can prune it--

a little nip here---------

A little cut there--

and we have salvaged something that originally was thought for naught--

Aren't you glad that when God looks at us, he sees the parts of us that are salvageable, that are right, that are beautiful, that are ministry to others.

Oh God, feel free to prune and cut, nip and tuck til you get me just like you want me.  Oh yes, the discipline can be hurtful for a while but it feels so good after the shearer has shorn, the pruner has pruned.

For these commands are a lamp, this teaching is a light, and the corrections of discipline are the way to life.  Proverbs 6:23
