Monday Vitamins: Lesson from a sunrise

As I began my morning walk recently, I paid attention to the sky, as is my wont.  “Muted,” I thought, referring to the colors of the sunrise.

The colors began to change (or were more colors added?) as I continued the outward leg of my journey.

On my return trip, I noticed further change.

And then the lesson was gently spoken:

If you watch a painting in the early stages of the creation process, you may be unimpressed. Do not be hasty in your evaluation. Wait. Give the painter time to finish the painting. The end product will blow you away.

So it is with a human life. We are all a work in progress. HE is creating a masterpiece in you. And He continues His work over the length and breath of our days.

  1. Such a clever observation and isn’t it unfortunate that we are, as a society, becoming ever more impatient, every more ‘need it NOW’…when we’re impatient, we miss the beauty and, often, don’t allow the final end-point to be appreciated.
