Day 50 – Wow – halfway to the goal of 100 days!!!
I was incredibly blessed today as always. My middle daughter has decided to help a group called Interfaith by doing a play with many people from several different churches. She is doing service hours by being in a play. Not quite sure how that is doing service hours by doing something you love – but more power to her. Anyway, each week they have rehearsal at a new church in Akron, OH. I really love seeing each new church as they are all old and have such character to them. They aren't four walls but instead intricate architecture. This week, we were at a church that had so many stained glass windows. Each one told a detailed story about the life of Christ. I just sat there in awe of how each piece had to be cut, ground and formed to fit into this elaborate picture. There were thousands in each piece. I will hopefully include a picture or two here on the blog. I was just amazed at how perfect each piece looked and how each piece had a place and played a part in the picture.
We are all the body of Christ. We are all being refined and we all have a part that we play in life. We all fit into an elaborate picture that God has placed and we each have a story we can tell about how God has touched our lives. We are an intricate piece of artwork called the body of Christ. Just like the stained glass, without even one piece of the body or stained glass, we would be broken and not fit together. Each piece is so incredibly important to His master plan. If you have ever wondered what your purpose is, remember that without you, we all suffer and we need each other to complete His work.
