I am reminded daily as a follower of Christ that if I choose to be narrow minded, intentionally tunnel vision impaired, that I would never experience the broader stroke of Gods beautiful creation of All People made in His image. Like the masterpiece. The many colors and shades that bring the masterpiece to life. Each stroke and color carefully placed, overlapping on the canvas unique and needed, and when finally blended, after the final stroke of the paint brush, the masterpiece is complete. Our lives woven together by God, All in His image.
