In keeping with the theme this year of "following through," I hope to post more pictures of finished objects. I'm trying not to procrastinate on finishing things. I have a bad tendency, like most people, of putting undesirable tasks off, lamenting how horrible it is, or how long it will take, when in reality, it won't take very long, and if I'd stop complaining about it, I could be done with it already. In the words of Lewis Caroll in Alice in Wonderland, "She generally gave herself very good advice, (though she very seldom followed it)." So, it's time I take my own advice, and changed the way I thought about things.
Trying to be better than you are is hard work. It's always an uphill battle, although it's an admirable goal. Anything worth anything is worth fighting for, and being a better person is always a fight. "Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness." James 1:2-3. These are my verses for the year. Words to live by - I am trying to find the joy in my trials, and get the promised steadfastness. It's sure to make for an interesting journey - would you like to come along?
