This frame is just like me, full of pits, flaws, and just plain messy. It is also a work in progress.
I bought this frame with nail holes, because it reminds me of the scars we get through life. This is a reminder to me about how messy life (and people) can be.
I didn’t want to leave all of the holes – I wanted to fill them in. This is my reminder that healing does take place, but sometimes there are scars.
My attempt to fill the holes did not go well. The frame looks messier than before. I decided this would be a work in progress. I have been thinking through what I can do to make the frame look nice. I’m not sure if that is possible, but I’m going to try.
I like visual representations of life lessons. We all live through difficult times that wound our spirits. Those experiences change us for the rest of our lives. We may feel as though we will never be whole again. However, for the Christian, God uses each life situation to make us more like Jesus Christ. There is no better goal in life than to become like Christ.
So this frame is a reminder to me that while I am messy and have flaws, God is still working on me to produce a beautiful image. His.
