Happy New Year! I hope that you have had a good break. It was a wonderful sunrise on New Years Day here. As we set sail into 2022 I wonder where it will take us?
It has been a while since I posted. I have decided that this year I will do so approximately once a week. Thanks to those of you who replied and said that you enjoyed the the posts.
This Christmas, Natalie bought me a “Painting by numbers” as I’m always saying that I’m not artistic. It is very intricate and takes lots of time to do. It’s essential that you put the right paint in the right number; even the very small areas, to make the correct picture. I am trying to do a few minutes regularly but it’s going to be a marathon not a sprint.
2022 will probably need sticking at. There will be times when it seems full of small, mundane details; when the big picture seems to be a long way from coming together. And you are forever painting no.2 blue! But all the little numbers, bit by bit, come together to make the masterpiece that the original creator envisaged. There is a reason why it is as it is.I know that God has a plan for me this year that will gradually get filled in; may you find yours too. And, (this especially applies to us men!), for best results, follow the makers instructions!
For many, especially persecuted Christians, life can seem like so many shades of grey. But I have seen many paint 🎨 sweeps of colour when their only seems to be black available. Yet it remains tough to keep going and in this new year they still need our support.
